    Don't forget all the rumors concerning higher resolution displays (retina display).

    ^Lol.. Same here.. But I get the feeling that with all the iOS back to Mac stuff and all these gestures that they're slowly going to go in that direction with Mac OS.

    Imac 2012 will feature:

    Ivy Bridge CPU
    Z68 onboard flash SSD
    USB 3

    Not sure about a redesign as the current in my view still looks so great.

    Of course the usual - faster GPU and maybe faster 1600 MHz DDR 3 ram

    To be honest the 2011 iMac is all I could wish for with 2 Thunderbolt ports, HD ICAM and faster GPU and sandy bridge i7 2600 3.4 ghz CPU :)

    The current iMac has pretty much all the current tech, bar USB 3.

    If you go on about Ivy Bridge, you might as well talk about Haswell and Rockwell and then it just goes on and on...

    Haswell - 2013
    Broadwell - 2014 (was known as Rockwell before)
