It is obvious to us all now that there will be no more production of the current line of iMacs. We also all know that history goes to show that when stockpiles of Apple computer parts are finished off and that no more are comming in, it is a sign of a new release. This makes us assume that Apple will soon (probably in July) release new iMacs. There is something different about how long they are waiting to release the next generation on the product line. The last time we saw this long of a wait between Apple supplys emptying and a release of a new product was when Apple went from the G3 to the G4 in the iMac. The life span of the previous iMacs (frist gen) was a little less than four years. This generation has been around for three years and several months. This can leave obvious gaps for imagination as to what will be happening with the iMac.....(a G5 maybe?) One arena that hasn't really been explored to much though is that maybe Apple plans to kill the iMac in Leu of a better alternative. Such an alternative would have to be absolutly groundbreaking in order for Apple to flat out kill the iMac. I belive that Apple is tired of updating the same lines of hardware, and that they are cooking up something new in the computer desktop arena. If this happens, the iMac could be flat out replaced by this new computing hardware, or the iMac line could be phased out completly and the new hardware line be moved in as the "middle range" of Apple. What are the chances of something like that happening?
