I am not intenionally waiting to buy an iMac until the next upgrade comes out, but since I am waiting until I am back in the States to make the purchase it will probably work out that way. I am curious what you all think is in store for the next update of the iMac: Firewire 800? Tiger? Better graphics card? Faster DVD burner? The last time I was at an Apple store, in December, one of the employees told me "probably not" on most of those things (except Tiger) mainly because it would bridge the gap too much between the iMac and the PowerMac. Any thoughts? Thanks in advance, of course! I started thinking about this recently when I was considering buying an iMac on my next vacation to the States in April, mainly for my wife's benefit.
