    Hey, I'm planning on buying a new iMac next week after Macworld...since this is my "first Macworld" (the first one since I've become interested in Macs), I just had a question about it: what is the format of the event? I mean, are all new products announced during the keynote, or on a rolling basis until the last day? Is right after the keynote a safe time to buy? Finally, I know the keynote isn't broadcast live online, but does anyone know if any of the Apple retail stores broadcasts it? That would be cool to watch it live! Thanks again

    New products are only released during the Keynote. Well, at least Apple stuff. So yes, buying an iMac is safe after the keynote. We have no clue if your apple store would broadcast it, call them. I don't think they would though.

    Normally all the products are announced by Steve in the Keynote, and the rest of the week is spent in these forums discussing the new products :p
    So yeah, after the keynote would be a good time to buy, as no other announcements by Apple are expected (I've never heard of this happening, someone else may correct me). And I've never heard of a Keynote being broadcasted live at a retail store. They used to broadcast them live, but they stopped a couple of years ago.

    keep in mind that I stand to be corrected :)

    Whatever will be announced during Macworld will be announced during the keynote. That does not prevent other "special events" or unannounced updates in the future. If you want what is announced, buying after the keynote is safe. Some people think that is the best time to buy, others think that waiting to see if there are any introductory problems is best. It depends on whether you want to have the newest longest, or the most tested.

    The keynote is usually available online a few hours after the event.

    Start standing my friend;) Macworld actually used to be broadcast live at the mac stores a few years back, but that no longer goes on today. Check out the link set up about Macworld and you will see a thread discussing this.
