OK, I have been waiting for an iMac update since Dec. when I discovered this site. I remember hearing all the rumors of when the imacs will be updated (March was a sure thing, then beginning of May, it will be in June, etc), but now we are hearing Aug 7th as the next rumor. I have gone this long without an imac so if it is NOT August 7th then I am going to wait til October when the imacs will have leopard and an updated ilife. I am a teacher that recently had to hand back a G4 ibook that the district gave to us and it was replaced with a very nice gateway laptop. (Apple did not offer anywhere near as good of a deal as Gateway (2 GB of memory), so our district gave every teacher a new gateway laptop this summer K-12). I really liked my ibook, but now I am going to spend my own money and I want the best deal that I can get on the best technology (at the time of purchase). I am getting pretty good at waiting, so what is a couple of more months. Closer we get to Oct. the easier it will be to wait for the complete package, but with that said- I am hoping for something amazing August 7th... I would like some time to play around with a new imac before school starts Aug 28th.
