If your holiday shopping list includes one of Apple's refreshed iMacs, you may want to start working on a backup plan. According to a "commercial source" speaking with French blog MacBidouille, the updated all-in-ones may not hit shelves until early...

When you're so obsessed with creating two-dimensional electronic devices that its hurting your distribution, you need to back it down a notch. Why exactly does anyone need a 5mm thick all-in-one? Does this <I>really</I> improve the experience for Apple users in any way? I'd say add a couple millimeters and cut your damn prices a bit. With the slow-motion train wreck of Windows 8 and Surface, Apple could rapidly get 30% of the desktop market if they'd just keep their prices within reason - say, within 25% of comparable Windows machines. If they can't or won't do this with iMacs then they could make some new Power Macs aimed squarely at gamers and design professionals. No surcharge for miniaturization needed there! The entire consumer and business world is weary of Microsoft's ever-increasing separation from reality. A reckoning is coming, and <I>somebody</I> will benefit from it. If Cook had any sense he'd be positioning his company to make huge gains. Apple can't ride the iPad/iPhone wave forever..that much is obvious from their latest round of products.

That is the cost of innovation, and that's how Apple is trying to position itself on the market - as innovators, not some manufacturer of K-Mart knock-off-s dusting on shelves ;)

Meh... HP's Z1 is still better than these. The only thing new these imacs add is tapered design, a la HTC.

Friction-stir welding, 45% thinner display than before, 5mm edge thickness.. all of these sounds that new product of apple seems to be repair-proof (hard to repair when damaged) :D

Its Apple, what do you expect? Its the same overpriced crap with a different package. The only innovation Apple has done recently is the innovation of how to defy court orders. What Apple calls Innovation, the consumer market calls repackaging. Apple is hoping its fanboys and sheeple wont notice. Unfortunatly the rest of DO pay attention, so Apple isnt going to pull the wool over my eyes. I compare then shop.
