At that point again you'd be waiting for next cool thing. There's always something around the corner.

I think the new iMacs look amazing and I'm very interested in seeing the new display IRL. Should be great according to the early reviews.... Perhaps next cinema display will be laminated as well? And the Apple Television unit?

Sounds like she's not in the target audience. If that's all she needs an iPad would be a more logical match.

Not at all, I had a real problem with a late 2007 iMac, it was out of apple care and Apple gave me a credit of $1799 towards a new imac of my choice.

I maxed out a 27 inch for less than $1000.00 out of pocket....


Never looked back...

Doesn't appeal in the slightest.

The same cash could have bought an upgradable tower back in the "Apple Computer" days.

Too expensive for the casual user, too appliance-like & limited for many professionals.

Sad times...
My thoughts exactly.

I dont think people are not liking the looks as much as I think people are disappointed that Apple has the mindset that making it "look" thinner is more important than making it upgradeable and keeping features that folks needs. Apple has been a one trick pony that last few years. No real technology innovation since the iPad 1, just thinner products and they buy denser pixeled panels.

I know, they creating the lightening connector. IMO that is simply a giant profit grab for EXTREMELY overpriced accessories.

I hope they start taking orders around 9am eastern. I hate when it's shortly after midnight because then all the folks from pacific get their orders in before I get mine. 9am would be perfect.

They are all repairable at Apple Prices Just like the MBP 13 Retina, if you can afford a ridiculously priced 13 notebook at $1700-$2000, you should be able to afford $1200 to replace the logic board in a couple years when the memory ($20-$30 item) fails.

Hmm. So I need to buy in-store because in New York I'm eligible for a tax-free purchase due to this, but I want a customized 27". Do you suppose that means I'll need to wait till December when they'll take orders in-store for the 27" models?

Meanwhile complete silence about iTunes 11. Let's hope the new iMac is not all we get come this Friday.

Same question, only thing I know about them is they're from National Geographic, they're part of the standard screensaver album in OS X.

Finally, the NEW gen that looks like the old gen but with a price increase and thinner edges will go on sale friday. Pity I'm waiting for 2013 model as I have high end 2011 and can't justify the upgrade.

I really like fusion drive, but i'll order on day one of Haswell refresh, Thats for sure. Happy for those that have been moaning though, They can now browse Facebook and twitter on a bigger screen instead of their iPhone and iPad
