The processing boost for Haswell won't be that big. You can't order both drives in an iMac, it's one or the other so a 3TB (Fusion option?) or a 768 GB SSD and my best guess is you probably won't see an option for both this year.

And as for the Retina display, the iMac is almost Retina already. Also do you really want to pay the rice for that large of a Retina display.

It all boils down to, do you want an iMac now or in the October to December time frame?

As other posters said, the new wifi and haswell plus slight processor bumps will be more likely this time round.
Maybe they would release a 19" iMac Retina and go slowly up the line within 5 years


19" iMac Retina or Die !!

Wrong. Have you actually seen a Retina MacBook? No discernible "jaggies"
