    Now that we all officially know that Apple is releasing OS X Mountain Lion tomorrow, is there anyone thinking of a possible iMac refresh tomorrow? I'm waiting since December and I am desesperately waiting for the refresh to get my first iMac, I hope, finger crossed, that it will be tomorrow, alongside with OS X Mountain Lion.

    Anyone believe this too?

    Not anymore. Mostly due to 9to5mac reporting on updated SKU numbers for the cinema display. That should have covered new iMacs too if they indeed were coming.

    I doubt it. I hope the person in charge of getting the iMac updated and available to the public is flogged in public with a large wet noodle. Sick of the waiting.

    I bet my friend $20 about two months ago that we would see them by the end of July, but I think I need to head over to the ATM soon, if that answers your question.

    I could from a marketing and strategic product announcement plan understand the postponing till tomorrow, but when tomorrow passes and we have no minor refreshed iMacs, I will then be extremely disappointed.

    It really makes zero sense releasing an iMac two months from now if it doesn't have retina or a redesign. Personally, I'm fine without either one of those, but taking this long (two months from now) for a spec bump is absurd.

    We shall see tomorrow....

    It makes sense if there were production issues that prevented them from being shipped this month.

    I believe. Tomorrow the tooth fairy will announce the new iMac. I wasn't expecting an announcement tonight, but I don't think desktops got a mention. iPhone and iPod are all anybody seems interested in. If nothing by the end of July I'm gonna think serously about a refurb. Wanting to ditch the PC for ages and apple seem to have lost interest.

    I made up my mind after grabbing a refurb 27 imac 2 weeks ago. Now its sitting in its box again waiting for the courier to pick it up. Once refund is done I'm going back happily to some nice itx i7 ivy bridge rig with gtx670 and lots of ram. All in a shoebox size case, with 27" display. Yep, few cables on the desk, yep not as georgous looking as an imac, yep back to old win7 - but then again, same money and few times the power. And not as loud as this damn fan in imac. Not as pricey for the ram upgrade and can replace whatever I need whenever I want. I guess I just dont fall under target audience of an apple product.

    Pros of my decission
    -way better value for the money

    Cons:
    - way worse design and OS


    Anyway, farewell guys!



    P.S.

    Unless apple with feck us over and announce new imacs tmrw...thoug I doubt it soooo much... :)

    Just wishful thinking. Apple has shown complete neglect for the entire desktop line.

    Yeah, I was holding out for this week until the reports of the laminated screen thing. That whole "leak" stinks of Apple deliberately disbursing the information while maintaining deniability. Every time -- EVERY time -- we have seen something that specific that close to a suspected release, it has turned out to be correct. To think it is an ongoing accident is unrealistic.

    Looks like no iMac refresh until they solve the laminate thing, which is who the hell knows when. I'm going to wait until tomorrow to see if they spec bump the Mini, and get one if they do -- or if not, grab a new Air to tide me over. I'll be paying for portability I am not using to some degree, which I never like doing, but it maintains its resale value and that's more important.

    I think the "production issues" are Apple sitting on their thumbs. If they wanted it out, it would have already been out. I seriously doubt that we will be bowed over by even the Fall imac update, but you never know. I mean the notebooks are nice and all, but come on . . .

    ----------

    Well, they have had plenty of time to solve that and any other lingering issues. No more excuses for this or that.

    Yeah because technical problems are from people sitting on their hands.
