Just as an FYI:

They won't let you exchange the _hardware_ (at least, not that I've
ever heard). What will happen, however, is that sometimes pre-existing
orders will automatically be "bumped" to ship the new computer, even
if the cost is higher.

As for OS upgrades... with OS upgrades, usually you can get a free or
low-cost upgrade if you bought your Mac within a certain date range.
