There is absolutely no Mac in the price range of $1,000 - $2,000 now unless you can find an iMac in stock somewhere. But then, it hasn't been updated since last September, why would you want to pay so much for that thing now?
They're once-a-year update cycle for Mac desktops (which seems to be the norm now) is really pathetic.
Well Apple did say in their statement they still have a few weeks inventory, and also, other countries i'm sure also have inventory. so it's not bad Apple will anounce the iMac with imeediate availability, I guess they didn't want the backlog which happened with the 2nd generarion iMac, which was a big reason why it lost it's sex appeal people got rid of the wait, and more pissed off when Apple had to raise prices, so Apple won't have an iMac to sell for the entire month of August, it won't be the first time, usually they announce a product and say avilable in a month, this time they decided not to show itm until it's avilaible i guess
