    A French retail chain is easying loans on Apple product until 4th July.

    Should we expect a release on the 10th (which is a Tuesday) ?

    I like positive thinking like that. But with all the previous let downs being optimistic is hard.

    Apple has steered onto a different path with Steve gone, who knows when they will be released. I would guess when ML is released, after all they could benefit greatly if they had a new fresh platform to go with a fresh OS.
    Well thats my opinion.

    Since it's already late, perhaps they want to coalesce the iMac refresh with the Mac Mini which is soon at the end of its cycle?

    So some French retailer is relaxing its lending requirements on Apple products and from that we are supposed to surmise that Apple is making a product decision?

    That's funny!

    I need a new computer, if the new iMac is a let down in any way, I am returning to a PC. I give up playing some really great games by sticking with Apple.

    10 July is possible but a bit optimistic IMHO.

    French people are well known for their treachery. There is no way Apple would trust them with this inside information.

    You realize the best video card you can get the Vizio is worse than worst card you can get in the 2011 iMac, right?

    If the OS is holding you back, bootcamp is a far better choice than the Vizio.

    I honestly think that the only thing delaying the iMac refresh is the 680M GPU. Some manufacturers are shipping 680M laptops June 21st or later.

    The term "upgrade" seems more appropriate, because new model, for me, means design changes.

    The cashier at my local Weinerschnitzel told me his uncle in Munich heard from a squirrel that Apple might be planning on releasing a new iMac this month and that they told him to start saving his nuts.

    I'm really frustrated. I've just been given a budget to buy 30 new iMacs, but a deadline to get them by. I just KNOW that i'll order them on the very last day of that deadline and they'll be renewed the next day. It's happened once before and they would not take back the old stock.

    Yeah, that's when you call customer relations :) They'll walk your dog if you ask them right.

    Oh believe me i tried everything. I had ordered 50 Macs at the time. I imagine they'll probably be a little bit more forgiving about one iMac, but not about 50. Plus i got it from an education supplier as where i live we cannot order from Apple direct. So double problem.

    Arrgh Apple how i hate you sometimes!

    Well your statements contradict. You can't get mad at Apple because your EDU supplier has a crappy customer service policy. If you're ordering those quantities, why don't you just have an Apple Direct Sales Rep come in and help you? You'll likely get the same deals with a lot more flexibility for returns\modifications, etc.

    Cashiers from third party stores know nothing about Apple release schedules. Actually, no one outside of Cupertino knows anything.
