20inch iMac and Dual 1.8Ghz G5? [Updated]
- The company will soon announce 20-inch flat-panel iMacs as well as Dual-1.8GHz Power Mac G5s, according to reports.
Older rumors had been predicted 19" iMacs in the past, but this product had never previously materialized. As well, the production of Dual 1.8GHz G5 PowerMacs was rumored back in July as a way to shift demand from the popular 2.0GHz PowerMac G5s.
ThinkSecret predicts tomorrow as a possible launch day, coinciding with the Page 2 report.
Previous rumors had pointed to significant announcements this week as well as a music-related Apple Store event on November 28th.
Update: ThinkSecret provides more confirmation and pricing changes in the PowerMac line to make room for the Dual 1.8 GHz. According to the site, the current 1.6GHz and 1.8GHz models will drop $200 (to $1799) and $300 (to $2099) respectively, while the new Dual 1.8GHz G5 will take its place at $2499. The Dual 2.0GHz is rumored to stay at its current price point ($2999)
