It is known that the joint measures on the product of spin-space and disorder space are very often non-Gibbsian measures, for lattice systems with quenched disorder, at low temperature. Are there reflections of this non-Gibbsianness in the corresponding mean-field models? We study the continuity properties of the conditional expectations in finite volume of the following mean field models: a) joint measures of random field Ising, b) joint measures of dilute Ising, c) decimation of ferromagnetic Ising. For a) we find 1) discontinuous dependence on the conditioning for almost any realization and 2) dependence of the conditional expectation on the phase. In contrast to that we see continuous behavior for b) and c), for almost any realization. This is in complete analogy to the behavior of the corresponding lattice models in high dimensions. It shows that non-Gibbsian behavior which seems a genuine lattice phenomenon can be partially understood already on the level of mean-field models.
