Everyone backup your iTunes library then light their iMac on fire and dramatically hurl it out of your window while blaring “God Save The Queen” from your iPad, because new iMacs are on their way!
Well, or so the theory goes. 9to5Mac reports that iMac supplies are becoming constrained. Since Apple’s Tim Cook is basically some sort of Cylon when it comes to having exactly enough stock on-hand to match demand, that’s as much an unmistakeable sign that new hardware is coming as the heavens rending in twain to make way for a seraphim riding a flaming rhinoceros would be for the Apocalypse, or at the very least, the day the PlayBook outsells the iPad.
What’s in store for the new iMacs? Apple’s new 10Gbps bi-directional I/O port, ThunderBolt, is a lock, and I expect we’ll see some blazing new Sandy Bridge chips as well.Either way, the last iMac refresh took place in July, so we’re about due.
