Apple's all-new, all thin iMac will be available for your purchasing pleasure starting November 30. The 21.5-inch model will be available through Apple Online, Apple Retail, and select Apple resellers, while the 27-inch model will be available for order through Apple Online and will ship sometime in December (no word on in-store availability for that model). Lest we forget the details, originally announced over a month ago at the October iPad and Mac event, Apple has issued a press release to remind us:
Apple is using a process called "friction stir welding" to adhere the iMac front panels to the casings at the molecular level, and rumor has it that's not the easiest thing to do at commercial scale. Supplies might be constrained going into the new year, so if you've been waiting on the new iMac, shop early and shop fast.
Anyone planning on picking one up?
