    There really shouldn't be a refresh of the iMacs anytime soon as they were just updated, and based on the the last few updates, the only thing changing are minor hardware specs not radical design choices. I love my 20" iMac its easily the best computer I have ever owned. Speed all depend on what you are using the computer for. I edit video, encode video, serve up two apple tv's and its great for me. Check out the refurb store on apple.com they are still basically new computers with the same 1 year warranty and are a little cheaper. Enjoy your new mac.

    No idea about refresh. With the economy the way it is Apple might be looking to get prices on its parts and increase margin for a bit.

    1. I don't think there will be a refresh anytime soon as there just was one in March. The usual time between refreshes is about a year IIRC, so most likely, Apple will wait until end of '09 or beginning of '10 for a refresh.

    2. If you need the computer now, get it now. I have the 20 inch one (the lowest spec one) and it works fine for me, but then again, I don't consider myself a high power user. When I'm not using it for fun and movies and music, I'm crunching numbers in Excel and making PP presentations.

    Good luck!
