Cracked glass (bottom left) 27" 2.66 Quad i5 1TB I was promised a replacement on priority status. Apple has twice delayed the ship-date, so now they are telling me it won't even leave the factory in Shanghai until 14 December. Almost 2 months after I placed the order. Dell has better service than that.
