I always thought it was "Black Friday", the day after Thanksgiving. People have been known to get trampled to death at the Black Friday sales.
I think there is a certain expectation among PC users of having desktop computers of all shapes and sizes available to them. This is to say that since they've always had a (PC) desktop, they assume they wan't or need one if they switch to Apple. This was certainly the case with me when I switched over from the PC. Though I did tinker occasionally, upgrading sound and video cards etc..., I found that I really didn't need to anymore and was perfectly happy with the Mac I...

Where can you download 20-35Mbps average bit-rate 1080/24p movies with lossless audio? Give me a break.
In my experience, when a manufacturer gave an estimate of a certain month, it almost always meant the end of that month. That's not to say that Apple might not ship the top-end iMac the 1st week, but I wouldn't hold my breath.
It's not like they're gonna start shipping the minute the clock strikes 12:00 on Nov. 1st.
Which external BR drive did you order? I was looking at the OWC Mercury Pro 12x BR burner for $350. Supposedly, they use the newest Pioneer drive and I figured I could remove it from the external enclosure and install it in a Mac Pro when I eventually get one but use it with my iMac for now.
You know I meant that in good fun.
I think that discussion would be more at home over at AVSForum.com
