...so the Mac Store is down right now (as of 9.52PM 03/05/11).
That normally means an update to the Apple line up.
What will we see?
Revised iMac's?
A new Airport Extreme?

Any thoughts?

As much as I enjoy mac product speculation, the store was down in the evening earlier in the week, so could just be something boring like maintenance

They are saying 'We are busy updating the store for you - be back shortly'...
So I'm guessing it's more than just a crash...

New iMacs released as predicted. No surprises really, fairly modest spec bump, and nothing to get too excited about.

They are, previous entry level price was $2043 which was the price after last year's GST rise.

Still $990 to add a 256gb ssd is a bit expensive makes my current 27" look very outdated. Only got it last year but it is a core2

Surely they can update the store with products, without having to take it totally offline. Wouldn't that cost them sales.
