This is why people should of bought when they needed it, as months go by they would of been into a New iMac so upgrade days would be eating away.

Now people that are waiting will still wait, should be out in a few weeks, but with NO retina, glad i bought in feb and I'm awaiting a NEW mac pro, if new 15' MBP next gen cost what it does with retina i can't see how iMac will get retina unless an expensive version iMac or BTO

PS DONT THINK ITS FUNNY THERE ARE NO IMACS!! AS PEOPLE HAVE WAITED!! HOPE THY LEARN FROM THIS!! CGASING LATEST IS NOT ALWAYS BEST OPTION

LOL... funny stuff.

If there were an incremental update to iMac they would have mentioned it along with the new non-retina "old skool" Macbooks.

I believe now that they tried to make a retina display iMac and failed, so they're stuck with 2011 spec machines. If we see the store go live with cheaper 2011 iMacs then this may be the case.

Or if there's a next-gen iMac for sale and they didn't talk about it then you know where iMac sits in importance.... not very!

I feel as though we will see a silent release of Mac Pros and iMacs very soon.

1. The store is still down.
2. Clearly, there will be a new Mac Pro, but we saw nothing of it.
3. Leaked benchmarks
4. All of the leaked accessory part numbers, none of which we saw in the Keynote.

The updates aren't finished.

I think that's his point - we can't really see the future. Which is why it might be a little bit of a losing battle to continually wait out an iMac refresh. If you really require an iMac, what's wrong with this one?

Now, though, there might be a silent refresh in the coming weeks ... but, there also might not. If you need an iMac now and can afford one, get it. If you don't need an iMac now - don't get it!

Once you get your new iMac, there's going to be new stuff released ALL THE TIME likely. By the time you open your boot to get your computer out, there'll already be new stuff.

Instead of going for the absolute 'latest' maybe look at what your needs are. After closely looking at that, are you *sure* you *need* a hypothetically new version iMac? Will the current one not do? Would a PC maybe be better if you want to game?

Some thoughts.

You know Steve Jobs never in all his time at Apple announced a new iMac at WWDC, don't you?

If you buy today, you're still paying full price for something that's over a year old. And given that Apple computers aren't exactly the cheapest to begin with....

Hoping, but not holding out much hope, that there is a silent update to iMac.

Crap should not have waited 5 months.

And with that you mean that Jobs' only job was to show keynotes?

Jobs had a proper leadership inside Apple. That's enough to justify a different Apple in the past.

Well, that was disappointing.

Three weeks ago I signed up for the apple financing, with the no interest for a year being the final thing to convince me to get an iMac to replace my G4 mini instead of a PC. At the time I thought it would be a done deal, and that in a week or less the new iMacs would be out that that would be it. I've got until the 21st to make the purchase, otherwise the offer expires.

I was hoping that WWDC would be it, but unless the new iMac is released in the next week I'll be looking at something a little more up-to-date.

Better get to the apple store now and get my new desktop before theres a run on whats left!!! A lot of people held out for months....i think its safe to say some will be calling it quits and going to apple today to get a new one.

I have played the waiting game and once was enough for me. A former blackberry user, I waited 6 months for the iPhone 4S after my BB died.

In mid November 2011 I bought an iMac. I did not have the stomach to wait....again.

The Pearl that folks seems to be echoing here is one that I now fully subscribe to. If you need an iMac now, then buy one now.
