    Well folks, I'm about to buy an iMac. My main concern is, are Apple going to be releasing a new line of iMac's in January or February? I'm hoping to purchase my new computer at most by the start of February. I don't want to buy something now only for Apple to release something new.

    Here are the specs I'm eyeing right now.

    *24" model
    *Core 2 Duo @ 2.8ghz
    *2gb DDR2 SDRAM 800mhz
    *Nvidia GeForce 8800gs 512mb GDDR3
    *500gb HDD

    Never buy a new Apple product when its so close to an Apple event. Wait till after.

    I think you can play the waiting game forever; you have to stop at one point

    hmmm... lets say Apple does release a new line of iMac's during the Expo, how long does it take til they sell it in stores from the time they announce it? I really need the new computer ASAP.

    After announcing, they could ship it in a day after announced, or maybe 2 weeks. It's quite unpredictable.

    Never, EVER buy ANY technology before a huge even such as MacWorld or CES. Always wait for the events to pass over before you even think of buying anything. In this case, the iMac, wait for MacWorld to pass before you buy anything Apple related.
