    According to Appleinsider: "In speaking to journalists by phone, Apple representatives were reportedly very clear in expressing that no iPhone or iPod product announcements were in the cards."

    Awesome. Bring on the computers! (Just in time for my "professional development" allowance.)

    LOL!! That one may still be down the road a bit ;)

    Ya gotta figure, if they release that, they'd miss out on revenues of several versions prior to it, even if they do have the technology.

    Yeah money is always a driving force. Although I think I would have a really hard time getting used to that design.

    Yes I am being sarcastic. It's been way too long.

    now, if they do release a new iMac next Tuesday, will they be in Apple stores right away? because I have next Tuesday set aside as a "check apple website, see that new iMacs have arrived, rush down to Apple store and get one" day. does anyone know?

    I am wondering the same thing... should I be up at the Apple store at 10 AM, will they be released immediately when they are shown, after the meeting, or at another day?
    I also have this as a "get an iMac" day

    Looks like this could be a big one:D. They wouldn't call the press in just to announce a new processor would they?:confused:
    Fingers crossed...:apple:

    Rich :cool:

    I waited until after wwdc to get my work iMac. It would stand to reason that less than 60 days later the new one would come out!:p

    They could... but not likely at this point so I think were safe :)

    I made an appointment at the Apple store for Aug. 7th 1pm... The store is about an hour away, so if I read that they are not available I will just cancel my appointment and order it online... I want a 24" imac...:D

    Actually I was going to take Monday off, as spend the day with my current Mac as its last. :D

    Kidding aside, I'll check the websites on Tuesday, and if there are demos, go down to the store after work to see it. Then BTO the sucker either from the store or when I get home. I wouldn't buy it in store just b/c I will most likely up the HDD to a 500 if that isn't stock, would BTO a 2nd internal HDD if they offer it (with Time Machine I think that is a possibility - that is unless they decide to make the HDD(s) user accessible again), would up the CPU to the 2.4 or whatever if they go the MBP route and the 2.2 is stock, and would up the GPU if they offer that again like they do on the current 24inchers. And if the price is about the same I would up the RAM too depending on the stock to at least 2GB, preferable single stick, but that all depends on the configs, capacity, etc. as well as the 3rd party pricing.

    Lastly, I would have to check if they will be available on Apple EPP right away, b/c sometimes they don't let employees order new product for a month until demand subsides. I have a couple friends who would get me the EPP friends discount which with all the BTO options I would want would be a nice savings. Even if I had to wait another 3-4 weeks to order, as much as it would be hard to do that, the savings may well be worth it.

    I did the same, just hoping that during my 1p.m. appointment, they roll out the new ones.:D

    It could just be Leopard's "secret feature." No need to expect it is the new iMacs but like all of you I want it to be the new iMacs because I am getting one pretty soon. If it aint the new ones it would have to be the old ones.
