So much truth in this it hurts. Haswell and Sea Islands/Kepler II will be out in H1 next year. New iMacs looking an even poorer value if this rumor be true.

I wonder if they are having the same problems with Thunderbolt displays (assuming they get updated at all).

The only use would be for them to get thinner. They might as well wait until the retina versions of the iMac come out, and release retina thunderbolt displays alongside or soon after.

The new iMacs are less reflective than previous models which is what the Thunderbolt Display needs badly.

My guess is that their production lines are either converted, or in the process of being converted over to manufacture the 2012 model. Too hard to unwind that conversion in order to keep making what's now considered an old design and still have your new production line ready to build the new model.

True, I guess they could update them, seeing as a retina iMac is a few years off.

I expect the next refresh of the Thunderbolt display to have USB 3.0 ports instead of USB 2.0.

The REAL reason for the delay was the revolt on Pandora. The bloody Na'vi have cut off supplies of Unobtainium which is essential for all thin products...

I just wanted to chime in. I think it's so funny how quickly everyone jumps down Tim Cook's throat and then over analyzes his position and capabilities.

The blog post on that French website is more than likely "link bait" to help boost their blog's rankings.

There are other options available on the market. Typical PC manufacturers are doing some great things with Windows 8. There's other choices out there other than Apple.

Any little scrap of news or rumor about the 2012 iMac is driving us all into a crazed feeding frenzy of anger.

I just want to point out that there are a handful of support articles on the Apple website that lists the "Late 2012 iMac" in their titles.

At this point we just continue and wait. If there is no 21.5" this month, then we have an issue.

No they aren't. Windows 8 is a farce.

Apple is still stating November & December though. If they know they are not gonna make the Xmas sale, wouldn't they change those dates by now?

yeah I just can't imagine Apple announcing things before they are finished or if there are still major problems going on, they obviously felt announcing availability to November/December as the right thing to do, its still on track for release but as Tim Cook stated shortages are expected.

Agree, but the last minute delay of iTunes really makes u think ...

----------

Or they could launch iTunes together with the new iMac in November...this could also be a possibility. I don't see them further delaying the iTunes past this month.

Why does this remind me of the novel "Thinner" by Stephen King?

I have to say that giving the many problems they are facing in the manufacture process, one have to ask himself if buying an iMac as soon as it out of the factory, is a smart move.
I am almost sure that since it is such a delicate computer now it will be even smarter to wait a little.

If this is the case how come we don't see ore order.?
All other apple stuff was many time on a sale with 4 weeks wait, so why not now? This face alone show that something isn't right.

Actually you can update to 10.5.8... I have an iBook G4, PowerPC and it runs it pretty smoothly, even with 512MB of RAM.

They are probably sorting out configuration options or shipping or who knows what. They said November its still November only mid way...it could happen late November and the 27" early December...

I did that at the beginning of September, was fed up waiting for a new imac so jumped ship and bought a Dell XPS 8500 with a quad core i7, 12gb ram, 2tb hd and a high end ATI 7870 GPU with 2gb DDR5 vram. All this for $1100. Runs skyrim like bliss, i'm a happy camper.
