    They aren't gonna be in stores before they are announced... either later that day or in the near future.

    Why would they have a press event if you could go into a store and buy them tomorrow morning. They will be released during the press event. You may not evven be able to buy from apple stores that day (not really sure how quickly the american stores get them, over in the Uk we have to wait usually about a week unless you live near regents street store)

    What about buying from the Apple store? Do we have to wait a week then? (please, please say no;))

    No one knows until the the actual announcement whether they'll be available that day or whether shipping will be several weeks away.

    As you can tell by my sig, I'm a new Mac owner and this could by my first new iMac announcement, so take this as it is.

    My guess is that we'll end up having to wait a couple of days, I'm thinking if it was already at stores, and was just in the back for hiding, we'd see leaks everywhere.

    The online store might have it hours later.

    6pm I believe.

    I would imagine that whatever they release will be available to order shortly after the press event. There's no real need for Apple to hold an event now for products that they can't ship.

    You sure, i'd rather turn up an hour early than an hour late.

    Which means it is at 5 pm. See here for the conversion

    Massive edit:

    Well the original question that I answered was what time is it in GMT which is indeed 5 pm. (knew there was a reason behind me not changing to summer but couldn't quite remember it) I then got confused and forgot about BST so thought it was 5 pm in the UK.

    And no ones knows until the actual announcement whether they are actually announcing new iMacs. :)

    [ Did someone say 6pm GMT? I guess that means 10pm for me! ]

    * DANG IT! It's at 5pm GMT! (You brits almost ruined my night!!) :)

    Well assuming you are in Cheshire the keynote will be at 6 pm because we are currently in BST. So leave a little early so you get home in time for the start.

    So it was 6pm all along! How ironic that with access to all these web pages that we couldn't even get that right!

    If you read through carefully then you will see that we did get it right, the event was at 6pm BST (UK) which is 5pm GMT. Just because someone asked for the time in GMT doesn't mean they are in the UK.
