Get Ready! New iMacs Are Imminent [Report]


Wave goodbye to this.

A new report suggests that Apple is gearing up to launch its latest lineup of iMacs very soon. It’s unclear whether they’ll get that much-anticipated Retina display, but if that’s not going to be a decider for you, it looks like you’ll have a new all-in-one in the coming weeks.

Fox’s Clayton Morris reports:

Get ready, because the iMacs are coming.

I’ve been hoping for an iMac update and it looks like my wish is about to come true! Multiple sources tell me that a new lineup of desktop machines from Apple is imminent.

Morris says that his sources haven’t mentioned a Retina display, but he does point to recent reports that have claimed the desktop will boast a “very, very high resolution.”

Morris is confident the machines will get Intel’s latest Ivy Bridge processors, an improved graphics chip, USB 3.0, and expanded SSD capacities — all of which have made their way into most of Apple’s MacBook lineup this year. The biggest change, however, will be its slimmer form factor, which will see the removal of its optical drive.

It’s “possible” that the new iMacs will come during Apple’s iPad mini announcement in October, but Morris isn’t too confident of that. All he knows is, they’re coming soon.

The iMac line-up hasn’t been updated since <a href=””>May 3rd, 2011</a>. According to the average time between updates, new iMacs are way overdue by about 279 days.
