Allo les folks, called the Laval Apple Store and the new iMacs are in. Going to go during the lunch hour because I am close by. There are fair amounts, supposedly, of end-of-line product. Will report back in the afternoon. Salut!

The new iMacs and Mac Minis are in stock. They are demoing the higher-end 20-inch models so be advised before purchase; the processor, video card, etc. are not the same. They have the 24-inchers as well. They look really great. They keyboard looks great and feels great. No keyboards in stock to purchase separately. Played around a little in iPhoto, iDVD, iMovie and Garageband. iDVD themes are nice, with great little soundtracks. iMovie was fun to use also. I am thinking it will be great for small projects. Pieces de resistances will need iMovie HD and more. Tried a track in Magic Garageband; that will be fun to play around with the kiddies. Oddly, no pricing yet on end-of-line iMacs and Mac Minis, but they have stock and they can put one aside for you over the phone for same-day purchase.

Thanks a lot

I'm planning on going tonight. My mind is set on the higher end 20inch but I'll see if I get tempted by the 24 tonight... as it is 300$ difference. Since I'm an MBA student, I'll get the student discount and I'll also used the ipod promotion for student I guess.

Welcome to ehMac, El. Back to school is effectively in effect with the new iMac. And you will be tempted by the 24-inch. Trust me. Just watch one of the QT trailers.

I just got mine from CanadaRAM: good price, excellent service.
There are also other Mac resellers around here, I guess you can easily contact them.

There's memorydepot.com and they're in Brossard. They will only ship though, but it's only $5 next day delivery. There is a deal at directcanada.com also, for around $50. Check ehmac's classifieds also. There may be some good deals.

Sont deja en stock?! Awesome! The other "Apple resellers" in town don't have them yet. I just want to play with the new keyboard. Do they load the computers with all the possible applications? I want to see how it'll do for editing in FCP. My stock keyboard works fine but I need something new! I'll wait the 3 weeks if necessary.

Merci, Mike.

Hey John, all the iMacs are loaded up with software. They are demoing the higher end 20-inch models with 1GB of Ram, so you will be able to test how responsive they are.

I'm actually looking for a Mac Pro but I want the iMac keyboard :p

It'd be fun to see how they run under pressure, though! Thanks Mike.
