I got an email about the iPad mini on the 2nd of November (Thursday) and one for the macbook pro 13'' on the 8th (Friday). Thats 1 Apple product a week. So perhaps this Friday the 16th they'll release the iMac 21.5''.

Why, did Kuo say something? I'd much rather hear from a supply chain analyst than a blog speculating based on what a retailer thinks might be happening.

Why's the buyer guide been updated if you can't physically purchase one yet?

I also thought of that when they were announced. They should update the days when you can actually place an order. I mean one-two weeks before announcement and orders is not much of a issue but when we are talking months.... (it seems to be at least one month for the 21.5, not to mention the 27)

I wish someone could answer that but today's Mac World are casting doubts on a pre Christmas release and quoting French resellers. I'd expect pre-orders by the end of this month on at least the 21" if models are going to arrive for Christmas - allowing for a 2 to 3 week window.

If (big if) they have production moving, there's no reason to sell before next week. There is serious pent up demand. They will sell many more than they can deliver this year, so why give up $100 per unit on Black Friday.

Can someone please tell me why the iMac got a green light in the Macrumors buyer's guide? It possibly won't be available for purchase for another 2 months, for crying out loud. Yet the buyer's guide says "buy now".

I absolutely agree with you on this one. I think the buyer's guide is fundamentally flawed in this respect. It should green light only once the product is actively available to purchase. It's quite misleading really.

I react to this as well. It really doesn't make sense. It is now they should write "don't buy, updates soon!" Which would be more suited the current situation.

Cool

It is an interesting question for those who run this site.

(i) If Apple announced an updated product at an event, for launch in 24 months time......would this website change the light to green, and say 'buy now' ? and

(ii) when it did become available in 24 months would it be labelled as 730 days old, and red flagged, with 'don't buy' label ?

I therefore agree that is very misleading to suggest that you should buy a product that has not yet been made available
