New iMacs to Go On Sale as Early as Tuesday?




Belgium-iPhone.Lesoir.be claims that Apple will be delivering the new 21.5" iMac to Apple Premium Resellers in Belgium starting on Wednesday. Meanwhile, the 27" iMac model is still believed to be scheduled for December.

The site also believes that the new iMac would be available for online orders at approximately the same time.

Separately, we received an unconfirmed tip saying that the new iMacs would be ready to order tomorrow, Tuesday, November 27th. We're not sure if the time difference (6 hours behind U.S. Eastern) explains the conflicting time frames or if one (or both) are simply wrong. Neither sources has a track record, but both guesses are certainly realistic. Apple originally claimed that the 21.5" iMac would begin shipping in November.

Update: Purported email sent to resellers from a distributor:

And if you don't buy it within 12 hours, you have to wait another 2-3 weeks for shipping!

Any company would die to have the kind of demand that you mention. I'm sure they are working as fast as they can to meet the demand, but when demand is greater than supply it's much better than the other way around.

Why are you posting pics of the "Thick" ones then? Where's the pics of the "Thin" ones?

We've already waited over 70 weeks. Another two weeks won't make that much difference.

The same design but with no chin and less of a bump in the back because it doesn't need to house hardware would look great.

I would like to see them roll out the TD display with the same form factor. Would make for a great set up as a second monitor when paired with a iMac.

Given they have said nothing about a new TD at all though, I have to believe they are a 2013 event and not until well after the iMac supply is under control.

A new iMac without hardware?
That would look maaaaaaaaahvelous.
Need lots of adapters to hook up all the external bits, though.

If apple is having problems with the 27" (hence the delay) I'm guessing the Tbd won't see an update intil the 27" supply is under control

I will wait to my birthday next year in june and hope for 27 iMac with a retina display as retina displays seem to be more easy on my eyes especially with text.

Wife's 2007 iMac is showing signs of age. Would love to see the look on her face when she opens a big box and out comes a 27".

Apple, make it so!
