    1. Phil Schiller said that the 21.5-inch iMacs would be available Novemer 2012 and they are….the last day of November. Thus one can expect the new Mac Pros anytime from 01 January 2013 through 31 December 2013.

    1. I hope it’s Dec. 31, because I need a paycheck or 2 to recover from Christmas bills. I won’t have to suffer with that left out feeling if it doesn’t come out until late Dec.

  1. Finally. Boy, could they have sold some of those last Friday! Too bad they weren’t available for the last month, that could have really helped the stock price. But better late than never. I’ll be ordering the instant I can. A nice 27 inch beauty.

  2. Definitely getting the new iMac. As usual, there is already a waiting line for my hand-me-down. In the past I used those to convert windoze users, but nobody among my friends and extended family does pc anymore.

    1. Wish I could say the same of my friends. One finally bought a used mid 2007 iMac, but no sooner did he buy it and used it for a few days when it suddenly just shows a blueish screen when you start it and thats it. Does not help that I have been telling him how reliable macs for years, when this happens.

      1. Light blue? That sounds like OSX is trying to load but not getting very far. Probably a hard disk issue, which would also tie in with the previous user wiping their data off it before selling on. For a five year old computer it’s not exactly surprising IMO.

        If he has a recovery disk get him to boot off it and do a disk repair, but even if that works he ought to get the hard disk replaced.

  3. well count me as one who will no longer ever support you by following a link on your site. It is great you mark ads as ads openly but going through intermediate “soul collecting” scum like valueclick is NOT acceptable. I am disappointed in you MDN.

    sdpbolvw is just a new name for the old – one more entry to my hosts file.
