When do you think the official re-launch (if you will) will be? Because they said that all those Macs would be on the store today.

There's no point in saying this because I'm addressing people who are thinking irrationally, but: there was no logical reason to believe an iMac update was coming today. If you thought there would be a 27" retina display you were seriously dreaming. Obviously these things are coming eventually; every device Apple sells will have a retina display soon enough. Apple wasn't "supposed" to release anything today, you just hoped they would.

Just remember this when you're composing your description of how much you hate Tim Cook and how he's ruining Apple.

Logic dictates that a new iMac should be coming soon. They are WAY past the usual update window. I'm not whining or gnashing my teeth. Just saying I understand why people would assume what they did.

I held off on an iMac purchase thinking one would be coming soon.

Why's it clear it will happen soon?

If it was getting just a spec. bump, why not announce it now like the MBA/MBP spec. bump, or do it silently now like the Mac Pro?

Your new to this!! wait and see!!Spec bump like it has been last few years, Apple know it will still sell plus NEW iPhone/TV will rake in the $£, Maybe small redesign can't see it but NO retina the new MBP with Retina shows how expensive an iMac would be, any one one waiting for retina iMac will be disappointed

I agree that a lot of hatred of Cook - no idea why - has boiled over to ignorant moaning, but "no logical reason to believe..." is more than a little off. Its average cycle for the last five versions has been 273 days. It's now been 405. There have been several leaks and rumors such as this or these which are no less viable than the same ones that people cited for guessing, correctly, that the others would be upgraded. And believing that the lack of a retina display being available immediately on one of the current iMac models holding back an update of the line, or even a mention, is pretty far fetched.

The iMac, second only to the MacPro (whose average upgrade cycle is historically twice as long and was updated today), in a calendar sense, was the most due for an upgrade. Historically it's the entry option for non-student new Apple computer consumers. I'm very surprised. Also rational... mostly.

Just remember this when you're composing your description of how much you hate people you consider to be thinking irrationally. <3
