Don't make statements that are just your guesses. Your post should read:The next one comes in 2013. So choose for a long wait, or a perfect computer right now. And it won't give dramatic performance increase. Apple will shrink it instead of make it a lot faster.
It's what Blanka has been stating for the last who knows how long as if it is Fact. Frankly, I haven't seen any "expert" state 2013. All seem to think it is this fall. I think she is just stating 2013 so IF it happens she can be all "see I told you so!"....Don't make statements that are just your guesses. Your post should read:

I believe Apple will shrink it instead of making it a lot faster. But keep in mind I don't work for Apple, and have no more information than you do, but like to act as if I do."
And I don't care if it is 2013 - but when someone comes looking for information it's really cruddy to pretend to know something and actually be talking out of your ventilation slot.It's what Blanka has been stating for the last who knows how long as if it is Fact.

We just don't know, but every day without an update brings us closer to having to wait until 2013. I've taken the snarky perspective now that there won't be an iMac refresh until 2013, or possibly that the iMac will be EOLed, for the simple reason that it's not the outcome I want, and therefore it must be what is going to happen. (shrug)4. What happens to the iMac and Mac Mini in the meantime - are they getting a spec bump this year or do we have to wait until next year now?
No t hasn't, though the iMac did a few months ago.Has the next generation mac mini, if there is one, been showing up in any of the Benchmarks? The next generation MP, 13" rMBP and iMac have been, I don't normally follow the Mac Mini forum so I apologize if I have missed it.
No, the iMac is a market segment leader. The iMac has amazing Apple stuff that can be applied to it, like Retina. The Mac Mini is a low margin, low power product. The Mac Mini is in no way connected to iMac.I have a feeling that the Mini is dead. The iMac might be on it's last legs too.
