    ThinkSecret pinpoints Tuesday, August 7th as the likely date for the long awaited iMac revision.
    ThinkSecret also suggests that the overdue iLife updates could also arrive at the same time, but are less certain on this possibility.

    A recent rumor had suggested that iLife update had gone "golden master", suggesting an imminent release.

    That seems like an odd day for Apple to release a update. Has apple always stuck to Tuesday's for new releases?

    If this is true then people at the warehouses will have a busy weekend getting things ready for Monday and the onslaught of order that will pour in over the weekend.

    curious to know if any versions of OS X come with it??? I've only bought macs and they just came with all of it except iWork as a trial, if you buy just the OS does it come it?

    No it doesn't, a retail copy of Tiger doesn't include iLife, but every new Mac comes with the latest version.

    I don't know when the iMacs need to be available to leverage the "back to school" spending. Somehow I feel it should be August and not September.

    ct, us
    No it doesn't. New Macs come with iLife, but iLife is not included with OSX.

    I could see that Apple might want to have the iMac out for the school shopping season. Or at least announced and allow orders to start taking place. I just don't understand the 10.5 date. Are they going to allow those who purchased an iMac a 10.5 update? or are they going to gouge us for an additional 150bucks a month later?

    Well I just bought my MacBook Pro on July 7th. If iLife 07/08 whatever does come out on August 7th, is there anything I can do to get a free copy? Or Do I just have to buy it?

    Either way Im gonna get it, but if I can get it on the free why not :D

    I assume a BTO would ship w/whatever software was current as of the shipment and not the order date. Yes?

    Specifically, if I order on 8/5, iLife ships on 8/7 and my MBP ships after that I'll get the newest version.

    No, I'm not going to wait the extra 2 days because 8/5 is a tax holiday.

    I think steve said in last years wwdc presentation of leopard that it would be full featured meaning the ilife apps would be included, but it has been more then a year so maybe if you play that from the apple site you can be sure about it ;-).

    I would think that :apple: would give you the latest version. You may need to call and be insistent with them though...

    What to expect on the inside?

    What do you people guess could change in the inside of the imac?

    especially what kind of graphics card would fit in there?

    :cool: I need Crysis to run smooth as butter ...

    Hope this is true. My current machine is has slowly been dying since March and I'm trying to hold out for this update as long as I can. Or maybe the computer gods just want me to have a Dell. :mad:
