Updates to Apple's iMac Line Reportedly 'Imminent'

FoxNews.com's Clayton Morris reports that an update to Apple's aging iMac lineup is "imminent", although he does not offer additional details on a specific timeframe or expected improvements.

Get ready, because the iMacs are coming.

I've been hoping for an iMac update and it looks like my wish is about to come true! Multiple sources tell me that a new lineup of desktop machines from Apple is imminent.

As we noted last week, Apple's retail stores have been experiencing shortages of 27-inch iMacs, and multiple reports have suggested that updated iMacs will be arriving in the coming weeks.

Morris has been an occasional source for Apple rumors, but carries a mixed track record. While he offered a fairly good summary of what Apple's digital textbook media event earlier this year would entail, other predictions such as his claims of iOS 4.0 and iLife 2010 discussion at the media event introducing the original iPad failed to pan out.

My hairdresser told me this morning she bought a 27 inch iMac yesterday from the local Apple Store. Unlucky :p

But this is good news :D Retina displays maybe?

Damn. She must be well gutted that she wont have that new Ivy Bridge goodness powering her facebook experience.

Just hope the Mac Mini will get some love too.. I still don't like the All-in-one throw-everything-away-when-one-part-breaks concept.

Had my iMac now for 6 years and nothing has broken. Much better than my PCs that ended up in the trash after 3.

Mountain Lion isn't even available on a disc.

I hope they axe the Disc drive. Such a waste of space.
Drive might be a waste of space for some but for others it's important.
Tell me, what am i supposed to do with the drawers full of stock photography and clip art discs I have but don't need to access every day?

Storing them all on an external drive is not a worthwhile option. Why have to by a drive when they're already stored on good media? Store to the cloud, ya, right. Again pay for something I don't need and oh, yeah, not possible due to the licensing agreements.

People really need to think outside own their own small, selfish ideas and realize people use their computers for more than online games, messaging, and surfing the web. Does having that drive in the machine really bother you? if it does, there's therapy available for that.
