Did I tell you not to buy one?

I like having a built in CD drive, I rip music all the time. I like how the iMac I have now looks similar to the 27 inch Apple cinema sitting right next to it. I could go on and on. Plus it's the computer I needed at the time, not the computer I was hoping to buy or waiting to come out.

You think I should of gone almost 7 months without a desktop computer?

Plus, Apple paid for MOST of this machine, because they actually stand behind their products.

I'll see you in 2016 when I need a new iMac. Hopefully this design will go by the wayside. Because imo the new design looks dumb...

I'll be paying for fusion drive and Applecare yes. but afteR A/C my heart could go lol. This would be the first iMac i would be looking to keep for a while once the Haswell ones release as I normally sell up on 2 years with A.C with it.

We will see, but not looking good.
And your talking advice from people that have no proof or experience with these new iMacs? Heck, nobody has any experience with these new iMacs to make such a bold statement. Go ahead and buy, don't allow outsiders to tell you something they know nothing about.

Not true, I was going to purchase this model, but lower HD speed same 512 of Vram means this is not for me, I can't blindly keep throwing money at Apple, Thats my moto, for some hey they can and good luck to them.

I prefer to be prudent and i do heavy work with the machine, NOt Facebook and twitter.

Edit: Also people use their computer from the front, you will see the thinness when you need to plug in the SD card which is now at the back of the machine, WhatApple does goes I suppose, Know one is allowed an opinion in here.

And when did Apple say the new Mac Pro will be released? In 2013? If so, then expect your new Mac Pro to go on sale Dec. 31st, 2013! Hey, it's still 2013, technically...

Nice

That is a cool looking computer. I just perused Dell's site for comparison, and their option list seems to go on for pages.

So the thinner design prevented them using desktop grade graphics? I thought the thinner design was due to laminating the display and losing the optical drive.

So they did lie, coming in Nov? No you can order in Nov to get it in Dec.

Also what about us in UK? No news on that, and when will they release the BTO prices, they must know now.

But we shouldn't have to look elsewhere. That's the point. And in the Apple Computer days, we didn't have to.

The Mac Mini concept was great, but in execution Apple just couldn't help themselves with the feature-creep.

Dual Core i5? HDMI port? I.M.O. it should be half the price (£249) with Spartan features (Core 2 Duo or whatever), so that people with very limited budgets can get a modern(ish) Mac & use the Mac OS. People like my Mum.

And as for the top end... The Mac Pro is a totally overpriced, unbalanced system. Overkill on the processors & EEC RAM for the home user / prosumer / existing G3-G4-G5 tower user, yet no current connectivity or decent graphics cards etc. for the money's-no-object professional.

Exact sweet spot for profits no doubt. Sad times for discerning long-time Apple Computer users indeed...

You rip music? From CD's?

This design isn't going anywhere for a long time pal. You're in the minority if you think a slim design with USB 3, less reflective screen, fusion, thunderbolt, etc is "dumb."

Kind of regretting it now they've released this but on the plus side my wife is six months pregnant with Sextuplets so I'll pre-order 6 of the top of the line 27s on Friday and they should arrive more or less the same time as the birth...

I said the design is dumb, what does that have to do with hardware?

Not the first time. iPad 1 3G was promised "in April", and became available on the 30th at 5:00 PM.

Apple doesn't make design changes for no reason, along with the design change come these new features.

I think they just meant that it means iTunes 11 will be out by the time they arrive. Of course, I could have misinterpreted it and they could just be excited for not having to install it, in which case I concur with your statement.
