So, I bought Arcturus in October '07. The issued a refresh of the hardware a week or two later, as I recall, and the Mid 2006 models are listed as having the same processor options as Arcturus, which implies Arc is a mid06 series. Which Apple has announced they will explicitly NOT be supporting for win7 bootcamp when they release support for it later this year.


It's a $5000 computer, two years old today, and it's already obsolete crap in the eyes of the manufacturer. That makes me feel good about my purchase. An EFI firmware update would /really/ kill you?

I've been pondering a wipe-and-reinstall of the OSX partition for a while. Two years is a lot of cruft. I wonder how much I could get selling it to put towards a new one. Probably not enough to make it a viable option for at least another 6 months or so. On the other hand, I just went and looked, and the best CPUs you can get are /slower/ than what I've got. Newer, sure, but slower, and $2600 extra! Oy. I understand why Psystar's still in business.

Meanwhile, I'm installing the 32bit version of win7. Yay.
