    The Buyer's Guide on this site, how are the products arranged?
    •*It's not alphabetically, because then MacBook Air should come before MacBook Pro.
    •*It's not on newest rumor, since there is a newer iPad rumor than an iMac rumor.
    •*It's not on release date, since the iPod Shuffle should come before the Apple Cinema Display.

    So how is it arranged?
    Is it just randomly?

    By product release, newest to oldest.

    Shuffle is an anomaly.

    I believe it's actually based the ratio of days since last update to average update interval...basically how far through its expected life cycle it is.

    So even though the iPod shuffle was updated more recently than the displays, the shuffle is lower on the list because of its shorter average update interval.
