received unconfirmed word that new Penryn based iMacs would be seen next Tuesday, continuing Apple's pattern of weekly announcements since Macworld.

There's been no independant confirmation of such an announcement, but would be consistent with rumors that Apple is transitioning their Merom processor based Macs over to Penryn due to a planned phase out of Merom processors in the coming months.
