Another Tuesday without a new iMac. I now believe that we won't see a refresh until WWDC. Only 3 weeks to go!

So if new Macs are announced at WWDC, what are the odds that they will ship that week?

Boo bl**dy hoo, no new iMac to replace one a year old.

Try waiting for a new Mac Pro, those guys have something to be annoyed with.

Most likely WWDC now. They won't release it next tuesday due to it being to close to WWDC.

if the Lenovo A720 hits the shelves before the iMac then that will be where my cash is going ...
I don't think I could deal with only 1920x1080 resolution on a 27" computer monitor. Fine for watching movies but that DPI is going to be very low.

My 2010 i3 equiped 21.5" refurb iMac is still going strong, so I'm in no hurry to upgrade. But I wouldn't say no to a 27" i7 sandy bridge model if prices come down on the refurb Apple store.

I don't think my 46 years old, ex arc-welder eyes will be able to resolve the new supposedly upcoming retina display with double the res that the current model have. What I'm saying is that, for me, screen real estate is of more importance than better resolution. I use my Mac for music, World of Warcraft and XCode and those won't really profit from the new display.

In my situation I will be going from a 2010 Macbook Pro up to a 27" iMac with a couple TB displays added on for good measure. I'm not replacing a year-old system, but changing my whole work environment and I can't justify buying until the refresh happens.

My sole use will be for a DAW and midi , so resolution is of little importance thankfully.

However , I've just had a quick look at the Lenovo support forum, and this springs immediately to mind --->> :eek::eek::eek:

Looks like I may have to put the Lenny A720 plan on the back burner as well ....

Lenovo support is a joke, even their business 3 years next day on site warranty. I had to call them last week when the slider for eject optical drive bay broke, Lenovo support says it is cause by user error without examine it.

You could get all in one Lenovo for half the cost of an imac, but if things start to break down, it is likely you end up pay more to fix the problems.

11th of june here we come*
Umm, no. I'm pulling the trigger tonight. This Tuesday, today, I am finally ordering my new iMac. It is everything I want in a computer and then some. I'll be happy with it for a long time regardless of whatever shiny new models follow it. I could go on at some length about why it will do what I want it to for years without me feeling any sense of compromise, etc. but I'll spare you all that.

If I already owned a Mac, I'd be okay with holding out for a while but I don't. It is good to live in the moment, in the now. Tomorrow may never come for each of us. You only live once and each day is precious. I don't want to waste any more of them pining away for the Mac I've been wanting for ages now. There is after all no guarantee whatsoever that new iMacs will ship anytime soon. It is all guessing and conjecture. Sure, they might ship next Tuesday, or the Tuesday after that, or maybe some Tuesday in July or October? Who really knows? Only the folks at Apple, that's who and they ain't tellin'.

Will I feel a little remorse when there is a new, faster GPU which is the one thing I cared about? Yeah, probably but it is not really that big of a deal. Next year around this time or so is when I think a far more powerful line of Macs will come out, not this time. I could wait for them too but I'm not.

I'm going for it! Don't try to stop me! Computing heaven here I come!!!

Thank you for pointing that out and providing a link. That is a very good deal but it would only cost me $132. more for a new one from Amazon.com taking sales tax into consideration that I'd have to pay with Apple but not with Amazon on the same spec system. For the money, I'd prefer one with zero cosmetic issues and no mileage on it.
