Apple does the right thing with DTKs

Amidst all the hoopla over the new [Intel-based Macs](, I’ve seen little coverage of this item: Developers who spent $999 to “rent” a Developer Transition Kit (a G5 case with a Pentium 4 inside) will have the opportunity to [exchange]( it for a 17-inch iMac with the Intel Core Duo inside. For *free*. And yes, they get to keep the iMac.

I had privately conjectured that Apple might encourage developers to return their DTKs on time by offering a small incentive (like a $500 credit towards a new Intel Mac), but this is even better.

    I’m not actually commenting on this story, but rather, I’m curious if you’re the same Russell Finn who attended Severn School…

    Yes, that’s me. Congratulations on being the first person to add a comment to the weblog. How’d you find it — just randomly googling names out of the Navigator? 🙂

    Drop me an email if you like — you can deduce my address from the blog’s URL, or else use “rsfinn” at the same domain you used.
