They need to release this week. Ivy bridge has been out for weeks and competitors have already released many products with it.

One thing about your video, I VERY HIGHLY doubt that the 3770 is the base processor. Chances are it's the upgrade. I'm betting the default processor will be the 3570, so that an upgrade is actually possible.

4GB of ram is sufficient for must users, though it's cheap to upgrade to 8GB-16GB using aftermarket RAM. I know I plan on upgrading to 16GB, myself. My main concern is the video card, now.

I meant the WinTel Ivy Bridge systems have been released but I don't think any have shipped yet.

When Apple announces they usually ship same day or within a week.

nice post, nice find

yes the 3770 would likely be an upgraded cpu BTO, nice to see something, jeez its been weeks, months of nothing.

i know this doesn't mean much if anything for release but i think it will be a silent upgrade, no mega rumors or leaks since its so close + no major re design or retina. I think it could be this week, if not i also think we will see some iMac and or Mac related blogs posts this week since its been dead time for so long.

getting there, almost

wonder why it ran 10.08 must be a dev preview

Apple is known for being secretive, but not to the extent that they don't tell the public after the launch... Yes Apple will tell you on their web page after launch.

Thank you for finding this. Even if it's fake, it makes a nice change to not have news about iPhone 5 headphone jack and smaller dock connector parts on all of the Apple rumour sites just for one day. A different headphone jack? Whoopee-doo.

Cool Fake?

It's most unlikely that Geekbench would post a FAKE result on the site. They are a well respected site, often used by the industry, to gather technical information.

The information is on there right now for everyone to take a look at:

http://browse.geekbench.ca/geekbench2/657744

I doubt very much it's fake.

Roll on the new iMac. Hopefully very very soon.

No. The results that the original post links to are uploaded by geekbench users. So it does not matter whether Geekbench is a well-respected site or not. The price of pears has nothing to do with the oranges. It is user-generated content. But, having said that, the information came from a computer that exists. Whilst it's possible to spoof that stuff, if you really know what you're doing, it's not trivial and there is precedent for these leaks in previous refreshes. Geekbench do not alter the results though just for xxxs and giggles.

You can build a hackintosh, emulate a mac id and upload your Geekbench results, just as any other user.

Really?

I think it's funny all those so called "leaks" are most likely orchestrated by a department at Apple.

Well, yes. A user could be an Apple employee running the geekbench benchmarks.

Most likely. Free advertising and marketing. Nice way to get people going crazy and have us ready to order. Of course, it could just be employees benchmarking and someone just happens to find it. Either way, it probably means new iMacs very soon.

Just a quick question what do you think the base model processor will be? The 3570? The old base model scores around 7000 on geekbench

Why not? The 10.8 can be easily obtained vie a torrent and its installation onto a hackintosh is not much different from 10.7...
