    So what do you guys think the next iMac is gonna be? I am pretty sure it is getting close. This is what i think...

    iMac G6:
    -It's gonna have an even thinner display and its going to be way lighter.
    -Wireless keyboard and mouse will be standard.
    - I think the screen of the imac is going to double as a tablet mac. (this is kinda iffy just cuz who wants to haul around a 24 inch tablet...but i can still dream.
    -the screen will definately have touch technology similar to the iPhone.
    -i think the iMac will be one of their first computers that will have a penryn processor inside

    -marshal
    what do you guys think

    The thread is irrelevant, but I'm going to give the OP the benefit of the doubt and assume he maybe means a 6th Gen iMac? Maybe?

    The number of people who put iMacs on ebay as 'G5s' and then say it's got an Intel Core Duo in the specs is very high :mad:

    Why would you think it's coming soon anyway? New iMacs just came out less than 3 months ago.

    Because the OP lives under a rock. Duh.
    Agreed, no new iMacs anytime soon. And G6 is a car and will never be the name of a Mac.

    Right, a new iMac comes out every year or two, so don't go predicting specs yet. Plus you'll have something else to predict about soon with macworld comming up...

    We're (mostly) just teasing. It's cool. You're new. Welcome to the boards and the Apple-world.

    FTR, there probably won't be new iMacs for a while yet, who knows what specs we'll see by then. Maybe it'll fly, or be able to pack my lunch on a night... here's hoping.

    ;)

    I believe the OP thinks that a new model should be coming out because the new Aluminum's have a similar body shape to the white G5/Intel iMac.

    But the guts of the new machines are very different from those other iMacs, this the OP might not understand. New guts, new Generation. Therefore no new iMac is expected anytime soon.

    I'm really curious as to when and what the "new" iMacs should be. Don't get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with the current design but I would like to see a change. The thing is though, WHAT could they possibly do to make a different design? I really hope it will be more than a mere "speed bump".

    Yes, Johnny Ive is like a god to me. He'll figure something out. I still wish people would do some looking around before posting some techy wet dream with little basis in reality not to mention complete unfeasibility.

    This thread is 2 years old. The redesign originally talked about has come and gone!

    Well sinceApple changed the regular Macbooks to Pro... Maybe they'll make the new iMacs.... iMac Pro? Then they will release the white one again and call it an iMac :p
