Not this Friday.
Anyway I think they will release it with the new iTunes. On Monday or Thursday.
What annoying is the fact that the same thing happened with iTunes 11, I hate this software, and I think this is the worst apple product ever.
So I was really eager to see what they did with it.
And amazingly apple took their time, just to announce in the very last day of October that they kicked it to the end of November.
Hope the iMac story will be different.

Well, it might be that NZ gets it later than the rest of the world. Might only be america and some of the other big countrey (germany, uk) at first.

So, let's say Apple have produced 50,000 iMacs and the current user demand is 200,000 iMacs.

Why would Apple want to release the iMac on Black Friday knowing full well they are going to sell out regardless?

Let's say those figures above are true - that's 70 (roughly) discount per unit. That's 3,500,000 that Apple will lose if they were to sell out their iMac Itinerary on Black Friday as opposed to after Black Friday.

Not going to happen i'm afraid.

Hoping i'm wrong of course
Or think of it this way; all those guys waiting for the iMac might suddenly be tempted by a MacBook instead due to discount and no iMac to buy. Release the iMac without discount, get them guys to pay full price! However I too think it will be next Tuesday....

A few posts here saying no chance on Friday due to the instant discount. But wouldn't that be a show stopper if they did? I mean, "Hey look, the new iMac is out and available on a day that offers instant savings!". How many do you think they would sell..

That'd be a stupid move, because it'd go out of stock and I'd be less likely to get one.

Don't you have to be a student to get a student discount?

What are you talking about? Apple stores are online and there's no iMac. They are not taking the site down again today to update it with iMacs

Site up again. No new iMacs...

I suppose the new iMacs have some serious manufacturing issues and we are not going to see them sometime soon...

If you get really fed up you could always buy this instead.

It's an option!

Well, I am kind of in your camp, re the manufacturing problems, but I think it might be just constrained supply, not a basic problem. Just one component in short supply can screw up the assembly line. They said it would be out in November for the 21.5. Let's give them the time. Then we get the rope.

Second that! We're still in november. Let's be patient.

And THEN the rope and I might add the torches and the pitchforks!

Yes the 27" iMacs will be available in December. Nobody said otherwise.

But the 21" should be available in November, as stated on apple's website.

That's what we all know since the last keynote.
