Apple Mystery Solved...Sorta

Tuesday, September 19, 2006 4:09 PM

Ok, so I think I know what the issue is with my Mac taking so long. I stopped by a local shop to see if they had any of the configuration I wanted in stock, and if so I'd be cancelling my order through the Mac Store. The friendly and informative salesperson told me that with the 20" models, the video cards are soldered to the board. So if you want to upgrade the video card on a 20" model, they need to pull out a fresh mobo and solder the better card on...assuming that said card isn't on backorder.

Which I think is what's happening with my config. Although...seeing the 24" screen in person, I'm REALLY tempted to cancel my order anyway and just get that one...in the name of not wanting to wait of course.
