You consider giving customers a free upgrade "screwing up".
And anyone who thinks a free upgrade is good must be "a blind apple fanboy".
I believe you're willfully misunderstanding what I'm saying, because I've repeated it several times. Money was not an issue, and I wanted the top-end model to ensure it lasted as long as possible, but now I'm not sure I'll be able to get it because I have to go through my IT bureaucracy at work. The change could screw up other people who might be satisfied with the 1.8 model and would rather pay a few hundred less than their original order, but now have to cancel and re-order to do so. Those problems would have been avoided if Apple had simply delayed their announcement until they knew what they were doing.
While I was posting this I got an email back from my purchasing people, and my order can't be changed at this point.
I'm sure many people won't care and will just take the new model and be happy, but don't dismiss my concern about the change just because some people will be happy with it.
