    I just got the 3.2GHz iMac, but I returned it because I heard a refresh is coming. I heard Sandy Bridge processors and Thunderbolt. I am looking to still spend the same $1499.99 worth of an iMac, but do you think the refresh will change the pricing structure? If the prices stay the same, the refresh may bump up the processor speed on each iMac, (the 3.06 may become 3.2 with an upgrade option for 3.6, the 3.2GHz iMac will get 3.6GHz processor as standard with a quad-core upgrade option, and the 2.8 quad core may become the 2.93 as the baseline with a 3.xxGHz quad-core as an upgrade option.) The 3.06 model will probably gain a 512MB 5670 and ditch the 256MB 4670, the next 2 models up will get a 1GB 5750, and the top of the line quad-core will get a 1GB ATI Radeon HD 58xx. I hope this is what happens. I think everything else will stay the same. What do you all think?

    You're basing it on the current processor line, which won't be used in the refresh. It will be sandy bridge instead, which is much faster. Anyhow, this has already been discussed to death in other threads.
