well you obviously know about this website...... did you know there is a buyer's guide on here? That's what brought me here in the first place.

Well there's a 50/50 chance a new one is coming this year. Question is how you like to gamble ;)

I'm still thinking that we'll see an iMac refresh this month.

The only thing that has me second guessing, is the absence of the typical leaks before a release. We saw lots of leaks leading up to the iPhone 5, and we're now seeing leaks about the iPad Mini. All the info we've had on the iMac update has come from analysts.

Here's hoping we see a new iMac release soon!

Very good chance of no iMac update this year, so you're not really missing out on anything.

Enjoy your new machine!

You did.. just not in the way you were thinking. :p

There's a high likelihood of a new model coming out by the end of this month, which will cost about the same but have much newer components and be supported by Apple with software updates further in the future.

What he's talking about is there was the same "this month" rumor 9 months ago. And 7 months ago. And 5 months ago. And 3 months ago.

False.

We've had logical dates we were projecting along the way, but the only published rumors have pointed to Sept/Oct - except for about 2 days in July when we thought some stock #'s might be iMacs but they were rMBPs.

:rolleyes:
Everyone expected it to be released soon after Ivy Bridge was released in April.
Everyone thought it was going to be released in June at WWDC.
Have you been living in a box?

What you're missing is the difference between "everyone (here) expected" and "there's actual published reports from many sources giving credence". Before, we accepted that there was nothing, and we speculated. (Back then, reports of "fall" came out, and we scoffed at them.) Now, we're much closer to knowing.

I was eagerly awaiting its announcement a year ago. This thread predicting iMac 2012 started November 2011. Given what we did & didn't know back then, it indeed seemed the still-expected iMac was imminent. In retrospect it seems stupid, but we didn't know what we know now.
