iMac rumor mill suggests new models could be coming next week

26 Apr

This one is obviously still very much in rumor territory, but a couple of separate reports have cropped up today that suggest Apple could be set to debut some updated iMacs electronic gadgets as soon as next week.

That includes a report from 9 to 5 Mac that iMac orders are being delayed until May 2nd, despite the fact that they’re still listed as shipping within 24 hours on Apple’s website, and a separate confirmation from a trusted source of the site, who says that Apple will stop shipping iMacs to retailers this week in advance of next week’s supposed release.

That’s further backed up by a report from Mac Rumors, which cites another source who says that Apple will be changing the promotional materials in its retail stores for a launch on Tuesday, May 3rd. Details are comparatively light on the rumored new iMacs electronic gadgets themselves, but the safe money seems to be on Sandy Bridge processors and Thunderbolt ports.

iMac Refresh Expected Soon Due to Short Supplies

21 Apr

Some reports today are indicating that the latest generation Apple iMac models will soon be experiencing some shortages. What this normally means is that Apple is planning on a refresh. The same happened with the iPad when the iPad 2 electronic gadgets launched as well as the MacBook Pro back in February when the next gen model was being prepared for launch. It has also happened a number of times before.

So what can we expect from the new iMac range? What we hear is that Apple will likely keep the same design, same screen sizes and same keyboard etc… but will bump up the power of each model to include faster CPU’s, larger storage and we also expect to see the ThunderBolt (first seen in the MacBook Pro electronic gadgets refresh this year) port being included in the refresh.

You are probably wondering when you can expect to see the new range of iMac computers electronic gadgets. Sources at 9to5Mac are hinting that we could see them within the next 2 to 3 weeks, so if you are planning to get an iMac within the next few weeks we suggest holding off till the new models are announced.

When Apple updates the Apple Store and announces the refresh, we’ll have all the details along with technical specs and differences.
