    Desiring worse performance?

    I've cracked open my iMac simply out of curiosity. It's a no-brainer. Have never had the need to upgrade anything on it.


    So you know for certain that the (very) late 2012 iMac 21.5" will have RAM that isn't soldered onto the motherboard and can be easily accessed with a couple of suction cups.


     


    And you are perfectly happy to pay Apple's exorbitant RAM upgrade prices.


     


    Bully for you.

    You mean like the iPad 3 that they kept on selling knowing that the new one was right around the corner.

    As to the Mini where have you been?    They castrated the latest release even more than int he past by deleting the GPU option.

    Good point. I forgot about that integrated GPU as I don't see any delay with the Intel HD 3000 in my Mini. It's probably gamers who see the limitation of an iGPU, but I haven't heard or read anything on that.

    What you don't understand is that people are disappointed with Apple ability to meet their desktop needs with a three product lineup.   In other words all Apple has to do is up date three machines in a responsible way serving their customers needs.   They have demonstrated clearly that they can't even do that with only three models to be concerned with.    If you don't see a problem with the way Apple has handled their desktop machines over the last 2-3 years then frankly you have low expectations or are extremely submissive.

    I think Apple can indeed a) listen to their customers and b) sometimes meet those whishes from them. They didn't have 3 desktop models back in the day (sorry for the low-res):

    If you can find one. I bought my 27" from a dealer just after a speed bump and it was a great deal.



    I'm hoping to find a decent refurbed on the Apple site or an independent reseller wanting to clear stock.

    Tax-Wise I need to have office equipment purchased and installed to write off the purchase in 2012 ---- I am running out of time .... and a 27" iMac will now not work for my budget.  


     


    I tried to buy the last iMac model about a month ago and they were all sold out - as are all the refurbished units.  Having no iMacs for Black Friday or Cyber Monday cannot be seen as anything other than the total screw-up that it was.

    It's Friday for me... just before 5:00 am.  


     


    Apple's Japan store page hasn't been updated yet and isn't down.  I was hoping to be able to start checking configuration prices...


     


    Back to sleep I guess.


     


    They might be trying to time the release around the world like they did with the iPad mini but that would be new for an iMac.

    Well it's Friday the 30th here in Aus and no new iMac. Apple have 9.5 hours to meet their deadline.

    Why would you imagine they'd do it at any time other than 9AM PST?

    Just saw a 21" iMac at my local shop (in Japan).  It is sweet!  It's right next to last year's 27" and the difference in the displays is stark.


     


    Can't order yet, though...

    This is one device I want to see unboxed.

    I'm looking forward to unboxing mine once the 27s come out!

    Because I think they have done that in the past.  With the iPads and iPhones recently things have tightened to a (closer) global same time thingy.  The iPad mini went on sale at 4:00pm here in Japan, so 1:00 am EST?


     


    Now it seems to be Macs as well.  Japan still has no order option, but you can buy the machine in the reseller (they can't even order).


     


    I'm checking every hour...
