    Sooooo, I do Production Design for a Health & Wellness company usually working with large illustrator files. Currently I am working off an Intel 24" iMac running Tigerrrrr 10.4.11 with 1GB RAM that lags all the time!!

    I've been approved for a brand new iMac/CS6 but we have been holding off (per my request!) because of rumors of a new iMac surfacing pretty soon!

    The deadline to buy my iMac is This NOVEMBER! However, I am hoping for a NEW model to come out with the iPad Mini and the Retina 13" MBP potentially this October!

    I know I'm not paying for the computer! and anything is better than a 2005 G5 iMac! However! paying full price for 2011 tech doesn't fly with me!! :mad:

    You at least need a new keyboard. Your keys appear to stick.

    How long does the typical purchase order for tech take to fill? Around here it can be weeks. Wait until the very last minute to submit the PO. If the new iMac isn't out by then, maybe it will be by the time the PO is filled.

    First of all, put some more ram in that machine, depending on which model it is I belive it can either take 6gb or 8gb, a HUGE increase over 1gb. Upgrade to atleast snow leopard - You can easily get a few more years out of it.

    Also just for the knowledge 2008 wouldn't be a G5 machine.

    New iMac will be early next year AT THE EARLIEST. So not before then. Just get it. It's not your money so enjoy it.

    Lol how can you say that with no evidence and no signs of a early 2013 release. All signs at the moment are pointing at October and if not apple have then lost a customer.

    My prediction is October, after the financial Q3 results are announced.

    Wrong ! It'll be 2012 before the end of October OR 2013 but not before June at the earliest ...

    Well if you are not buying one now or after October (if it isn't released in Oct) then are they actually losing a customer? Since you aren't buying anything and all:confused:

    And to the OP, time is money, I know I don't rely on rumors to buy new desktops for my office but our business may use it differently than yours.

    Employees wasting time with slow computers with problems means they are getting less done and I am paying them every hour which comes out that I am wasting more money by not buying the computer now.

    If he buys at the last possible minute does he still get the additional days tacked on to change his mind and upgrade if it is in a business setting?

    Yeah. Apple is going to release an Ivy Bridge machine 1-4 months before Haswell is released. :rolleyes:
    If no new iMac in 40 days (which is highly unlikely) Then the next iMac is going to be a Haswell machine, which means mid/late 2013 AT THE EARLIEST. not early 2013.
