iMacs to be released mid november?

I called my local bestbuy (i'm buying my new imac from them) and I asked them when they would be getting them, and they told me They would start selling mid november. Not the most reliable source. BUT HEY! NEWS IS NEWS RIGHT?!

27s too!?!?

Nah, I know. Just the 21s. Pity. Hope I can get a 27 before Dec 17th. I'm travelling for 3 weeks over chrimbo and won't be around to get delivery. I'll probably have to hold off until the new year. Sux to be me...

I called Apple Denmark today, and they said end of October (edit: November of course). They didn't know a specific date, but she was pretty confident that it would not be before the end of the month...

November 1st so I have a feeling Apple will have to put something up regarding availability on their webstores.

Who knows, we may even see 'In Stock'

Sorry, November of course.

She was from the sales department, and she seemed to have knowledge about the release. I asked "do you know when it will be released? You probably don't..." But she said end November right away.

In Portugal, there's a shop (Fnac) that is accepting pre orders of all iMac with launch date set to 14/12:

P.S and with 10% discount

Please a bit of accuracy, are you talking about the 21.5" or the 27"? It does not have the same release date!

I am being accurate. The shop says it's same date for 21.5'' and the 27''. Check in link on your right.

Click the link... says both on the 14th
Local reseller told me limited stock by the 27th Nov... But did say that meant they did to have a firm stock date, just a "Should have some by" date.

Then the shop is WRONG, Tim cook said that 21.5" will be one month earlier, that's the key!

Actually they could be both right. The shop is inferring to availability in Portugal.

21.5 on display on Friday 2nd Nov

Spoke with the folks over at the local Apple Store yesterday about the iMacs. One of the geniuses said they'd be received the 21.5 for display on Friday 2nd Nov. And the 27 a 'few weeks later'.

I doubt these shops have any firm dates yet. More like placeholders. Also if the 21" imacs were going to be available first week in Nov, I would have expected pre-orders similar to the 11/2 imac minis. I'm "guessing" mid month for each Nov and then Dec.
