That fits with what I originally thought. It was a review of the new 
machine by a Mac-related newsletter (I can't remember which one 
except it is a weekly review of what's happening with Macs). It 
didn't make sense to me but I assumed they knew more than I did.
The good news is that immediately upon the announcement of the Dual 
1.8, and its pricing, my local reseller cancelled my original order 
and ordered the dual version. Great service.
