    They said this when it was introduced.

    Apple doesn't provide hints about upcoming Mac models. All you can find are rumors.

    That's not new though. All it said all along was summer, which includes "late summer".

    "late" vs. no "late" is irrelevant because as last year's release of iMacs and then Lion shows, Apple doesn't let $30 OS upgrades dictate their hardware upgrade schedule.

    That doesn't mean it can't happen together, just that there is no reason to expect it.

    Apple always seems to do later than sooner, so annoying

    Thanks for the clarification. I didn't actually take a look at the official press release info page. Much appreciated.
