    I was searching a forum... and i came across this rumour that a black iMac is coming out next month with a couple of other things... heres the site:

    http://gizmodo.com/gadgets/pcs/black-imacs-and-8core-mac-pros-expected-next-month-238892.php

    You'll have to copy and paste it into your bar

    Here are some things that it says are going to be released:

    Black Imac
    8 Core mac pro's
    15 inch macbook (not pro)
    Mac Mini Upgrades
    Cinema Displays with HDMI/HDCP
    Also some new Mac hardware such as ilife 07, leopard, and iwork 07


    There you have it: Rumor or not?

    For all of this to be released in the next month seems unreasonable. I can see most of these coming out eventually though.

    Yeah, by definition, that's a rumor. No one can confirm it.

    I'm not quite sure an iMac would look right in black, but for anything else Apple makes in white (sans the mini), they also make in black -- except for the iMac. So I wouldn't put it past them.

    I made a post about this on my blog last week.

    Personally i'd love for it to be true (I plan on buying an iMac in the next 3 months or so ... and a black one would be awesome). I mean, has anyone seen how cool the mockup looks??

    And this doesn't even begin to touch on the fact that any iMac refresh might actually include a more dramatic redesign (it is about due since the iMac hasn't seen significant changes since it made the jump to a G5 processor).

    I think only one word sums up the prospect of a completely redesigned black 24" iMac ... hotness ... hotness.

    Black iMac would go with the rest of my black equipment and would match better..But other than that, why care about the case? It's not exactly what I look at when I am enjoying my iMac :p

    Unless it has a place on Apple's website it is a rumor and may or may not see the light of day.

    I'd definitely buy a black MBP way way way before i'd consider buying a black iMac... Like someone had said already, looks quite tacky =/

    And yea... it's a rumor.

    if they cant get apple TV ready, how the hell are they going to get all of those things ready?

    Apple should keep things in white I think, it just looks better.
    My dad has a black iPod, and I have a white one, and the black one doesnt look as nice.

    Like other people are saying, it just looks tacky.

    I tend to disgree, I think it would look pretty good, that is if it was matte. Black MacBook > White. I'm looking forward to buying one if/when it is released.

    I'd rather see a high end black mac mini than a black imac;

    I'd love a black :apple: mini! with HDMI :d

    I guess maybe I'm in the minority on this one, but I have never cared for the dull black finish on the Macbook. I also think that the beautiful understatement of the white iMac really sets it apart visually from the world of pc's.

    I love the imac as it is i am waiting for the next design as i am not crazy about the current model...G4 rocked.... I am disabled in my right arm so ended up buying a PC.. I hate windows but a touch screen is right for me at the moment......Still a loyal mac lover but nothing i can do[​IMG]

    Yeah right. I don't believe that for a second. The only computer Apple might make in colors -- and I still don't think they will -- would be the Mac mini.

    I'm pretty sure the following will happen:
    8 Core Mac Pro
    Updated Displays
    Leopard
    Final Cut 6 and Final Cut Extreme
    iLife 07 iWork 07

    I don't believe a 15 inch MacBook will ever come out, the only extra portable I see Apple adding to the lineup is a 13 inch MacBook Pro to actually repalce the 12 inch PowerBook.

    A black iMac may very well look fantastic but what about the Apple keyboard and mouse, I doubt Apple will make a black version of both, will they?

    How stupid would a black iMac look with a white keyboard.

    Beyond the for-sure software updates, I think a 15-inch MacBook is one of the most credible rumors we have. Someone uncovered manufacturing contracts that evidenced this last month. However, I'm not sure where in the pricing lineup it would fit; I'd think they would have to knock the 13" MacBooks down $100 or so to make room for a 15" MacBook that wouldn't be too close to a MBP's price.
