    Well, this is my last semester in college and I need to use my student discount while I still can to replace the 4-year old G4. Any ideas as to when we can expect iMac revisions? I'm hoping before the end of May so I can utilize my discount for the new one.

    Probably not until next August or so. It really wasn't that long ago they were updated, and it was a pretty major update at that, too.

    The buyer's guide just guesses based upon the average between all previous updates. So it give some rough guess, but I'd hardly consider it conclusive of anything.

    I don't think it will be August though, because a) that's kind of late for back to school purchases and b) they are falling behind competitively as other companies are already putting Penryns in their products, so a full year between updates would put them far behind.

    The best guess I could give is that the MBP's will get an update in the next two weeks. The MBPs will use apple's allocation of Penryn's for a while, but once that initial rush dies down, Apple will put Penryns into the iMac. So look for refreshed iMacs in April.
