New iMacs Still Coming Before Holidays?

AppleInsider believes that Apple will still be introducing new iMacs before the end of the year. The site had previously reported that the updates would be "speed bumps" rather than major internal or external changes.

The low end iMacs currently ship with ATI Radeon graphics cards with an NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GS as an upgradable option. Apple has said they would start building in Mini Display ports into all their machines from now on. Firewire's fate on the consumer machines remain unclear.
