No iMac tomorrow?

Should the Apple online store be down by now if they are releasing it within a few hours? Just my thought.

I'm in the Pacific Northwest and its not midnight, yet. It doesn't take long to put up a new page. It will have already been created. They will just have to do a copy. It should only take a minute.

This must be your first Mac launch. The store can be down for several hours just to update.

The store also usually goes down after 12am PST.

Why would there be bugs? Doesn't Apple test the product?

I imagine it will be released shortly.

Hopefully, the larger iMac will be released in another week, I don't want to wait until the end of December.
Truthfully, it would make sense to release the above iMac within a week to allow ample time for shipping etc...

I still feel a little uneasy concerning the cooling needed for the computer in such a tight package.
Furthermore, I realize the typical laptop doesn't appear to be a problem but people tend to leave a desktop on a lot longer.

I've learned my lesson about purchasing new casing iMac's from the original 27". I can wait this time around.

I dont get the hype, IMO the new design is an absolute failure. Still dont get why people are selling off their 1 year old imacs just because they want a thinner looking model.

You said it yourself it's just your opinion bro, some other people like other things even if it doesn't make sense to you but to others it may make lots of sense.

I was at your position, waiting for the new imac a few months ago. No news no details nothing.
Thank god after the event Apple made it easier for me with the new design, the no optical drive option + the non upgratable low end model so I got the quad mac mini for a month now and I am happy for it.
The only good with new imac is the design and thats all.
And all that waiting for all of you still waiting still sucks. No news and no specific release date by the company...

I agree with you, of course apart from those "small" things:
- Better CPU than mini (desktop CPU's)
- Better RAM upgrade possibility (27")
- Better screen (glare/etc.)
- Better graphic card

Fushion Drive, better graphic card, better screen... It's thinner is the only thing you can see in the new iMac? New iMac is the future, old models past away
