I could be wrong but doubt Apple would miss the opportunity of a pre-holiday release, the latter would not be a wise revenue opportunity.
However, the new iMac may have ran into a few design/production obstacles that were unforseen.

Really thinking it's a Haswell-based rMBP13 and my Apple Thunderbolt Display as my 2011 iMac and 2011 MBA replacement.

I expected it, and indeed it happened.
January, and even later.
I wonde how can apple be in such awkward position that people won't be able to buy iMac at all!! Until January, full quarter with no product in the line, insane! By any company standards.
No doubt that apple obsession with super thin, super light cause to this idiotic delay.
Why on earth it matter about this damn 5 mm thickness? Who give a ****??

Sorry, for your decision - I plan to wait since I am tired of looking at a square-box PC that has yet to evolve.

Looks like it's either Hackintosh or a Mini with the Dell U2713HM if this is confirmed.

Right, I agree with you. By other side... i think autodestruction buttom has been activated by Apple. It's just a time issue.... iPhone5= Fail, iPadmini= fail, iPad 4G falling underground......


This is a shi+!

Ha ha. If this is true, by the time the iMacs ship, we will be on the verge of seeing Haswell come out. That would truly be a joke.

You will see.... iPhone5 did not reach to have the growing curve as the iPhone 4s, all the economic indicators point that the iPhone market is decreassing....

iPad mini has sold well the first days but it's falling too, like the iPad market that is losing percentage os sales day to day...

I'm talking about economic information, it's just a time question and everybody will know it

I believe some of this, that it is delayed, but I still think they will et at least some out, or pre-order out for the holiday season, for the exact reason some on this thread are mentioning...."right not waiting getting a Win PC/and/or other PC/Mac etc"

I'm waiting to, I want a 21.5" top end with fusion... I bet us here in UK, get it even later than US

Maybe the extra wait will allow for the saving of money for a 768GB SSD.

Leave vision, product development, marketing and all else to others; Cook alone doesn't have the bandwidth for that.

Cook would be out on the golf course taking a call where Steve would be bashing heads together. Apple have dropped the ball on this one.

I heard that when a deadline need to be met Steve Jobs would make everybody do late nights until release if need be. Apple is no longer that company. If it was not for Steve there would be no kids on those apple one's, instead they would still be using pens and paper.

Think of how many man hours these delays are causing now, all because Tim Cook is on the golf course

I cannot understand why a company would design a product they cannot manufacture in sufficient quantities to meet demand. Aren't sales, marketing, design and production teams talking to each other? A shortage is one thing, announcing a product and then continually delaying its release. No matter how great the product may be it looks horrible on the company. This is a bad trend for apple.

This is the way the iMac ends,
this is the way the iMac ends.
This is the way the iMac ends,
not with a whimper, but a BANG!

"We'll give them what they didn't ask for, then fail to deliver. Genius!!"

This is a disaster! I dont even care if I would get it in February if I just can order it and deduct it on this years account budget. If they delay it over new year apple has really become useless with their promises. And now they don't even sell a proper desktop anymore. Pro is beyond outdated and I can't buy the current iMac, what is this??
This really frustrates me

Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooo.

Maybe I'll just keep the refurb one that's in the mail that I'm thinking about returning, then. I want to declare it on this year's taxes, and if the new computer isn't going to be out until next year, I don't think the discount I'm expecting ($50-100 off) will be worth the wait.

While I attach no particular insider knowledge to this, I was in Harrod's today which has an Apple Shop (Store inside a shop) and asked about the new iMacs.

Their educated guess was in the next 10 days. The guy said they'd heard nothing from Apple to suggest further delays.
