It varies. Sometimes the stuff they announce is available for purchase after the keynote is over that day. Sometimes it's not. It's a crapshoot, really.

Some things are available straight away, some things may come a few weeks after...we don't know more than you...

It varies, software could be available in days, hardware could be anywhere from immediate shipping to 4 weeks or so.
Third party vendors are likely to have their stock all ready for shipping.

Edit: psychofreak beat me to it by seconds.

Here lately Apple's been releasing stuff as soon as they announce it. I sure as heck hope they release the new MBPs (if they are announced) the same day, because I've been waiting to get my new laptop long enough as it is. I would hate for Steve to announce them and say wait 2 weeks for them. One word: TORTURE.

If he doesn't announce anything on MBPs at all, then I'm not waiting any further than Macworld, and if he does, I suppose I'll wait till when that's actually released, again, hoping its another immediate release.
