About the 27 I will be happy to see it in January...there is no doubt that apple saw the pressure of the customers and in the forums, and decide to revel the iMac before its ready. So people can finally go to sleep in peace knowing that apple didn't kill the desktop.
And that something amazing is coming.
What do you think about the big orange label in apple webside pointing to November for the iMac? It'd be a shame if they delay the iMac after having that on their web, they will release the iMac this month even if they have to do a pact with Evil....

Now in the Tim Cook Era, it's like: "We officially announce it last month. You pre-order this month. It arrives at your home three weeks after that."

Tim Cook is the guy under Jobs that made all that production magic happen.

Let me remind you the day he announced the iPhone?
" available on June...yes... I know..."
" it is better for us to show it instead of the FCC"
Anyway they probably had major problems building these macs.
