New iMac in January?

    In light of the news that Steve isn't going to make an appearance at MW, does everyone still think there's going to be a new iMac coming out in early January?

    I know it's not a new product, so it's not a big deal that he's not there, but what do you guys think the chances are of a new iMac coming out?

    I want to get one soon, but I have no problem waiting a month if it means I'll get better performance for the same amount of money. I've been waiting for a few weeks because there were all these rumors of a potential new model, but if the chances have changed I'd rather just get one for Christmas.

    One man stops giving a keynote and Apple immediately stops designing new products? One man stops giving a keynote and Apple decides to do nothing for the rest of its existence?

    Everything about MacWorld will be exactly the same minus Steve.

    There's a very good chance - just a hunch - I would wait, what have you got to lose if you can wait anyways:)

    If I was in the market for an iMac, I'd definitely wait. I did the same 2 years ago when I bought my imac. I decided I wanted to buy it in October/November, but I knew MWSF was approaching. Unfortunately, this was the keynote of the iPhone and no new Macs were released haha. So I went right ahead and ordered it then.

    I was about to ask the exact same question when I saw this thread.

    I've been using a PC since I started using computers in 1993. Since getting an iPhone, I want to make the move to Mac, and the iMac is for me. I think I'll wait until January and see what happens. :)

    From a jaded user, thank you for following the rules and actually looking around before you posted to see if your question had already been asked. :D:cool:

    No problem. :)

    YEP! And Apple is closing down this year because Steve didn't go to MacWorld.
    The logic is flawless.

    The next iMac will only be a minor bump anyway. It wouldn't have been in re keynote regardless. So steve's absence really changes nothing.

    So the next gen iMacs are to be with LED screens and approximately they'll switch to Nvidia. Do you guys expect anything more?

    What exactly will change with an LED display? Better resolution?
  17. macrumors 65816

    Instant on display and wider color gamut. Apple hypes the feature a bit too much for what it is.
  18. macrumors regular

    less power consumption, higher brightness, smoother illumination
  19. macrumors newbie

    Oh ok... I've been hearing a ton about it, and it was made to be something huge.. lol. Still sounds great, but maybe slightly over-hyped.
  20. macrumors 6502a

    But for those of us wanting to buy our first Mac, very exciting. ;)
  21. macrumors newbie

    Very nerve-wracking!
