New iMacs coming
Apple plans to refresh its venerable iMac line in mid-to-late summer according to a report from AppleInsider, just in time for the back-to-school shopping season. The new iMacs will be "radically redesigned," sporting the same 20 and 24 inch screens in a slimmer form. The 17-inch iMac will likely be discontinued when the new models are rolled out, as it does not appear to be part of the refresh plans. The last update to the iMac came in September 2006, when the company introduced Core 2 Duo processors to the line and added a 24-inch model. The current iMac line-up remains widely available through retailers, though supply checks show that shipments to dealers are slowing in terms of volume.
