    I can't believe some of the posts and replies still showing up here and there after the following in Huge Print on the Front Page:

    13-Inch Retina MacBook Pro and UPDATED IMACS Reportedly Due in September-October.

    The report provinance seems very sensible.

    Why the continuing guesswork/what if's?

    They're here this fall folks.

    Just save your nickels and dimes and quit wasting time speculating on WHEN.

    The question is WHAT.

    Did Apple delay all this time just to bump up the specs a little?

    I very much doubt it.

    Lots of good rationale against Retina displays this early.

    Apple's headed for the living room- just bumping up the specs won't do that.

    An Apple TV set pilot?

    Hopefully a decent fully functional keyboard with numbers and big enough for mens hands.

    Let's guess about WHAT - we know WHEN.

    Stroll around here in the forums and the history of the iMac posts. So many dates were published this year, WWDC, ML etc. pp.
    Everyone of the desktop users is tired of this f...n' apple secrecy.

    You do realize that 99% of the guesswork on this forum for this year's update was made before any credible sources rumored the fall release? Yeah...

    And there's already several threads on both that and "WHAT" to expect.

    Did you run a poll to come to your conclusion or is it something you pulled out from inside the back of your shorts?

    So you are the spokesperson for 'everyone' of the desktop users? :roll eyes:

    When was the election held?

    I must have missed that memo!


    :D

    Doesn't anyone read Apple's financial report?

    2003 was the last year they sold more desktops that notebooks. In the last quarter, nearly three quarters of all Macs sold were notebooks. If it was your business, where would you be focusing your efforts?

    And no, I don't read the Front Page. At least, I click only on this iMac forum link in my browser, and rarely visit the front page.

    Yes, thank you! I think the speculating about anything sooner will only end in dissappointment. We actually have a rumor from a reliable source now that's saying early October/late September, and no other date in between make sense. Just suck it up and wait, I say. Leave the last week of September for squabbling over stock levels.

    This site is called Macrumors.

    There are no "credible" sources for Apples release of anything due to their secrecy.

    Everyone is speculating about release dates or upgrades. It is part of what drives the feeding frenzy for Apple products.
