6 months ago I was going to buy a new iMac, whenever they came out.

At this point, given the redesign and likely un-servicable nature of the new design, I might as well wait for whatever they do to the Mac Pros...

Yup. That's what I'm holding off for. After trying every variety of Mac over the years, I've finally determined that the MacPro is the one that suits my needs the best. So now that Apple has gotten the new iMac off its chest, let's see what the new year will bring for the one remaining un-updated Mac.

Eleven hundred quid for a non-upgradable tablet on a stick with glass over the monitor.

Doesn't appeal in the slightest.

The same cash could have bought an upgradable tower back in the "Apple Computer" days.

And how could I pitch this to my Mum to replace her G3 CRT iMac when all she needs is something to run a web browser & an email client, and a 17" PC laptop is hundreds of Pounds cheaper?

Too expensive for the casual user, too appliance-like & limited for many professionals.

Sad times...

Well, at least we'll be able to get a feeling soon for -

a) what exactly the bootcamp problem with 3TB Fusion Drives *is*.

and

b) How much upgrades will cost for the 27 inch.

About time.. I'm not even going to complain about the way they stretched "coming in November" to the most extreme limit, I just want to order one - been waiting for the better part of 2012.

Why would he bother? Some people aren't keen on the design. Big whoop.

So of course the big question is....

What time does Apple usually update their online store for preorders like this?
