The report from Fudzilla, using unnamed sources, says that Intel's new plan is to release an all-new processor design for the desktop market every two years. In 2014, the report claims that Intel will offer a slightly improved and optimized Haswell CPU for desktop PCs. The next major new design won't come until 2015, when Intel plans to launch Skylake, which like Broadwell will use a 14-nm manufacturing process. Source Although improved wireless, graphics and possible default fusion drive might be part of the next revision of the iMac, you still might want to consider waiting on CPU after Broadwell. With Intel planning to make Broadwell a notebook exclusive and a refresh of Haswell is planned, it probably makes sense to wait it out completely unless whatever you have now is on its last legs. I planned to purchase an iMac this year, but certain circumstances are interfering with that, so I think I am just going to go with an iPhone and iPad this year. I have a decent desktop PC with Windows 7: Intel Xeon, 160 GB SSD, 20 inch monitor. This can probably carry me into 2015.
