    Regardless of the day the new iMac's launch, what is the tip off that that they are available on a day? In other words, what time of day in the U.S. will they show up on the online store? Past launches for certain products have taken place during an Apple event, but this time there will be no event.

    typically everything happens with Apple either at 9am PT, or at 10am PT (usually just announcements/events though)

    but, it's Apple, and pre-announcing a product like this isn't exactly "typical"

    I'll be refreshing every day at 9am ET, 12pm ET and 1pm ET (and maybe a few times in the afternoon) until they're available :)

    Thx for your reply. I just wondered how and if this was coordinated to the opening of the Apple retail stores. I live in ET, and I think the stores open at either 9 or 10 a.m., so I'd expect that once they open and if there isn't anything under the XMAS tree then it would have to wait till the next day. Unless online ordering happened before you can buy in the store, which I'd doubt, but then again who knows.

    If I were a betting man, I would put a chunk of cash down on Black Friday morning. Very early morning.

    probably released tomorrow since they're part of the black Friday sale. They wouldn't be in the sale if you couldn't buy them.

    :D

    Feels weird to me iMacs being released just before the Black Friday. If they were to release it tomorrow they would be sold out before Black Friday don't you think?...

    I don't know... It would help to know the stock they'll have when they release the iMacs.

    My guess would be November the 27th. But I'm just guessing. I want my brand new iMac as soon as possible. :D
