The beauty of having 3 computers is that you can upgrade them one at a time and then see if there are issues before upgrading the others. I'll do this with my 3 MacBooks.

No. I wish. 3 white ones.

The second one we bought is pushing the lemon-law. We might get an aluminum one before too long.

Latest from MacRumours;

"The report speculates that one of those features may relate to Blu-ray, a technology that Apple CEO Steve Jobs has in the past referred to as a "bag of hurt", although recent licensing changes may result in Apple taking a closer look at bringing the technology to its computers.

The report also echoes previous assertions that Apple is likely to bring price reductions to the next-generation iMac line similar to those seen for its notebooks at WWDC earlier this year. Finally, sources suggest that Apple may be undertaking a redesign of the iMac enclosure, possibly patterned after the 24" LED Cinema Display introduced last October. It is unclear, however, whether such a redesign would be ready for the next-generation iMac or if it would be deployed as part of a subsequent update to the line."

Mark
i'm too impatient for that

i've pre-ordered it so i don't have to deal with the lines like i did with leopard. (though i will admit, once the lines moved it was totally seamless and everyone got through very quickly.)

it's nice, but it feels much more delicate than my aluminium one. plus i don't know how i ever coped before the multi-touch touchpad. i miss it when i'm using the university imacs!

and for real it'll be great!

There were lines for the last one, Khanada? I'm assuming that was at an Apple store? Will they have it at other places that carry Mac products, or only Apple stores at first?

yeah, it was at an apple store. plus it's the only one in this area so i'm sure that added to it. i would assume though that any store carrying apple products (i know best buy sells macs now, for example) should have them too.

also, if you order through apple.com today, it'll be delivered to you on friday, with free shipping. even though i usually order things through amazon, they weren't delivering it till next week, even with one day shipping.

I may just do that then. There's only one "official" Apple store in Utah, and it's always a madhouse. They'll probably have it at Best Buy or some of the fake Mac stores, but having it in my mail box makes it pretty simple!

yeah, i know what you mean. the store here is always crazy since it's the only store within a three hour radius. plus, free shipping meant i'd pay the same price i'd pay in person anyway.

edit: omg, while looking up retail store locations i just noticed the one here is closed for renovations. way to pick the best time to do it! now they'll miss all the peeps buying snow leopard and the late people waiting until after school has started to buy stuff. they recommend visiting two stores three and four hours away!
