Just got off the phone with a nice American lady in Apple (despite calling the UK number).

I understand the new iMacs are available to order on Friday, does this include the 27" models?

Yes you can order the 27" on Friday "but deliveries will be in December"

I plan to order a custom config (i.e. a Fusion Drive), will this push me back in the queue?

Maybe by between one and three days. I've never seen a BTO delay over a standard of more than three days.

That's cool, 107.98 for 32GB of ram isn't bad is it (assuming you have to buy the fully 32gb and throw out the 8gb that already come installed?)

Well that's seems to be the typical price for about 32gb of ram, I would still wait until it's officially released but it should work (they only have a 16gb kit on their site atm though).

That's what I'd do, personally.

I popped into White City (Westfield) store today to ask about tomorrow's iMac launch.

One would expect that deliveries had arrived Wednesday or today, but front-of-store personnel were not terribly informed—I suppose their job is to be focussed on today's products and they will be briefed tomorrow morning on the new iMacs. In the back of store no doubt there's unpacking going on of demo machines.

Yes the 21-in models will be available, not just the two base and higher-end models but also they also expect some with Fusion Drive. The people I spoke to had no idea what stock levels of each they would be holding.

Store opens at 10am, Westfield opens around 9am, so I suppose there will be some brave souls queueing outside with noses pressed to the window.

So you have to buy 32gb of new RAM if you want 32, you can't just add 24gb to the existing 8gb?

The current 8gb is 2x4gb sticks and to get 32gb you'd need 4x8gb sticks! As there are 4 slots you'd have to replace the Apple ram with your own.

I really hope the upgrade to 16gb ram is only 160!

I would be, but I'm ordering online this time.

Turns out you can't get the Higher Education discount in store. Only Further Education.
