    [quote]Guys, Club-Mac is Macmall. Macmall bought them last year. <hr></blockquote>



    True, but only ClubMac offers the instant rebates. At MacMall you pay full retail, whether or not you want the extra RAM.

    [quote]what did the whole of China wake up and suddenly crave an imac??<hr></blockquote>



    Funny you said that because I am Chinese and I just woke up today and craved an iMac and so did every Chinese I know. I guess that's why your order is delayed.



    Sorry.

    But Apple RAM is pretty dang spendy compared to others.... hmmm.. I can see the hard drive, but the standard configs are usually good enough for a consumer machine.

    Why don't you just jump in a car, drive 2 hours and pick one up from the New Hampshire Apple Store? Get it the same day, save tax and shipping and you can add RAM there. That's what I would do anyway...

    That was our first thought! We went to the Cambridgeside store, and were told that no Apple store had them in stock, and wouldn't for a t least 2 weeks. They did have a demo unit though! VERY COOL. <img src="graemlins/hmmm.gif" border="0" alt="[Hmmm]" />

    2 weeks, no tax or 3-4 weeks, tax? Seems like a no brainer to me

    I think you'll have to call them to cancel an order. I did it before and couldn't find anywhere on the site to do that.



    Talk to a real person on the phone... what the hell is up with THAT?!

    Hmmm..not sure what side to take here. Apple's small blunder of promising you an iMac in 2-3 days if you cancel and re-order or your HUGE mistake of buying RAM from Apple! <img src="graemlins/oyvey.gif" border="0" alt="[No]" /> <img src="graemlins/lol.gif" border="0" alt="[Laughing]" />

    The moral of this story is don't EVER buy RAM from Apple. There are plenty of places out there that will get it for you for less than half the price, and ship it overnight as well.



    Look up Ramjet, for example.

    I really hope this guy was wrong but....

    I placed an order for a 17" iMac at ClubMac/MacMall a couple of weeks ago. I called yesterday to find out when they're supposed to get them and the guy said "2006." Realizing that Apple isn't "that" bad I waited for him to give me the real date which was nearly as annoying AUGUST 28th. That is rediculous.



    I assume, if this is true, that 10.2 will be on the machine when it ships, but I'm getting really tired of waiting for new machines to be released and then having to wait a month and a half to get the damn thing. Apple really needs to work on this.

    Hey WARPD since your in Boston, you can go to the Apple stores at the Cambridge side galleria or the Northshore mall in Peabody. I was at the Peabody store last Saturday and they had them in stock.

    Forget those stores, go to tax free Salem, NH. You'll save nearly $100 on tax.



    BTW, Jamie in Boston? &lt;shudder&gt;

    Speaking about RAM - what are some good places (and by good I mean cheap) to get it. $849 CAD for 1Gig of eMac ram just seems unreasonable.



    Vistago.

    The previously mentioned <a href="http://www.ramjet.com"; target="_blank">Ramjet</a> - $195 US for 1 GB of eMac RAM.
