    This is pretty funny.. I actually posted a question about buying an iMac when I joined this forum, way back in 2009!

    I still haven't bought one, but I did buy a MacBook Air on saturday (my first Mac ever!)...

    I was wondering if the iMac is going to get a refresh soon, possibly with a new graphics chip? Because some of Apple's refurb offers right now on the iMac are really enticing!

    Anyone have any more info on this? I may end up waiting regardless because I don't think it would be very smart to spend $5,000 on Apple stuff in one week...

    Thanks in advance for any info! :D

    Not for many months and if you've waited this can probably make it to the next revision

    Anyone with any info is either not talking or lying.:)

    Conjecture is that if there is an update it would be minor. For that reason it would be safe to buy if you need one now. If you don't need one, it *always* pays to wait.

    I just brought one. Needed one. There will always be something newer or better. Always. If you need one then get one otherwise you can be waiting forever.

    Thanks dude! Forgot about this! Yeah looks like there's another 3 months at least.

    True, I have waited a looooong time already haha... Years, actually. I think the MacBook Air can hold me over for now though, and I'll just wait and see. Cause you never know what new stuff they could add.

    I've had my new iMac for about a week. I've maxed it out to the most this GEN can do in terms of ram, etc. Don't really care about next model.

    I say, if you want one now, get one now. They always are going to bring out a new computer. And this gen will last you a good 5 years for most stuff.

    & then he will wait for the next & the next & the next...... Truth is if something is not coming out within a month or two then buy it now.

    You never know with Apple, However I would guess it will be in 2012. Then again it may not me a major update. So if you need it you might as well buy it.

    The next revision won't be out until Ivy Bridge which is currently scheduled for Q2 2012.

    Also to touch this subject again, the current iMac were released in May 2011 which is less than 6 months ago. No way in any shape or form will we see an update till at least another 5 months if not more.
