Three days ago Apple let the world know their new iMacs would be available on Friday (except the 27″ model). Just shortly after midnight tonight (PST) Apple made the new iMacs available for ordering online.

The 21.5″ model shows availability in 1-3 business days and is also available at retail stores. The 27″ model is available for pre-order and shows 2-3 weeks for availability, for an arrival date in December as expected.

According to Apple, these new models feature a “brilliant display with reduced reflection, faster processors and an innovative new storage option called Fusion Drive, the new iMac is the most advanced desktop Apple has ever made.”

Starting prices for the 21.5″ model is $1299 and the 27″ model is $1799. If you’re eligible for Education Store pricing (i.e. for students or educators), you can save $50 off the 21.5″ model and $100 off the larger 27″ model.

Anyone ordering an iMac today?

    I did it.
    I just finished placing my order for a 27 inch iMac, upgraded to the 3.4GHz i7 Quad-code and the 3TB Fusion drive. I will do the RAM upgrade myself.
    Expected delivery between 27 Dec – 3 Jan.

    ordered the 27″ model with expedited shipping. Dec 24 is the estimated delivery date.

  • Can I upgrade the RAM myself on this model? Or is it non-removable?

  • erth

    i believe on the 27″ model you can, but not the 21″.

    I selected standard shipping and mine estimates December 24 as well!
