    Hi all,

    I have been waiting with the purchase of a new 5k iMac because of Skylake and other rumours. But now that the 5k iMac has been refreshed, is this the right time to buy one or wait?

    Do u guys think Apple will surprise us with an all new iMac 27" in early 2016? Please share your thoughts.

    You have to understand Apple's release schedule:

    April: Macbooks
    June: WWDC, tools, devs, new OSX, iOS
    September: iPhone, iPad
    October/November: iMacs

    Unless they go for a new design, I'm not betting on another refresh early 2016. Maybe they will phase out Broadwell in the 21.5" models for Sylake but not until Q4 2016 I think. Intel still has 14nm yield issues.

    You can also see that Apple considers iMac as a mature product, so small incremental tweaks without an event is enough.
