New design said to be curved rather than squared
A picture has been posted online showing off what are said to be the logic board and internal components for a forthcoming redesigned iMac. The pictured parts include Wi-Fi and Bluetooth antennas, fans, and a hard drive. The new iMac they're said to be a part of is rumored to be thinner than its predecessors and to feature a significant redesign.
The picture was posted to a forum on Chinese web site WeiPhone.com. Reportedly, the new iMac will be significantly thinner than the current model, and its shell is said to have been redesigned to be more curved like a water droplet.
The new iMac is also said to have its display attached to its protective cover glass, making for a thinner profile.
A refresh of the iMac line has been rumored for some time now. In August, files in Apple's latest operating system update appeared to hint at a refresh of both the iMac and Mac Pro lines. it is uncertain when exactly any such models might be revealed.
