Nearly fell off my chair reading that line, love my Apple products but as their popularity has grown so has their quality control deteriorated.

No, you just bought a BTO mini that's slower than upcoming BTO iMacs.

I don't think people are upset over the wait, people are upset over the uncertainty. If you told me, "Pre-orders beginning November 26th for the 21.5" model," I'd just sit back and relax. I just know that availability will be limited, and so I have to keep constantly checking to see if they've gone on sale so I can ensure my order is towards the front of the pack.

Even if they gave me a date a month or two out, I'd be fine with it (I'd like to order before the end of the year for tax purposes, though). Just give me a date, or at least a week, which can be clarified to a date as we get closer.

Many studies have shown that people hate uncertainty much more than they hate waiting.

And I do agree with the idea that people would just like to know the pricing so they can plan. That would be very helpful.

what I mean is that, the new iMac is quite tricky to make due to various things, screen lamination issue and who knows what else...which leads to quality control , btw every screen gets calibrated for perfection, this is probably addressing yellow tint issue aswell...so who knows

One thing is certain. If you ask people to stop complaining, you're going to get more complaining.

Actually I decided to switch in February but was advised to wait as the new iMac was just around the corner.
That said now I know it's just weeks away I don't really have a problem. I would prefer it if they would let you preorder and list the BTO pricing (rather than guessing from the mini or MacBook options) even if shipping is a few weeks away. That way at least we would know what we were going to spend.
