Is there going to be one? i know MOSR and others claim that it's a probability..One strange event was my dad (who is not exactly a Mac-addict but recieves eNews) just announced that in the latest eNews, it said something about a 17" iMac being released...but on checking my last recieved one, I couldn't find anything..could Apple have already written the next issue and accidentally posted it to some people?

reagrding a leak, i doubt that would ever happen, and a 17" imac would be nice.

if they could ditch the g3 imac, move the emac to be sub $1000, then drop the price of the 15" imac, and use the 17" imac as a true midrage model, they will have every base covered. they may have to cut some of the products, like ditch the super drive 15" and put that in the 17", but that could be a ral money maker for them.

Well, widescreen is the trend at the moment... saying this, my 17" Apple monitor is 5:4 instead of the regular 4:3 or widescreen 16:9.
