    Were people expecting Steve to say that the next Macs are going to be meh at a company-wide pep talk?

    Perhaps everyone was expecting him to say nothing about the Macs.

    I think that might be extrapolating what Steve Jobs said a little bit far.

    I'm just saying that by emphasizing that their focus is on the iphone right now and apple tv later and THEN mentioning that over the next year more Macs make me think that new Macs are further out than I/we thought (read Sept/Oct time frame).

    The thread title is inaccurate. He didn't say 'iMacs' off the chart. Just 'Macs.' I'm sure iMacs are part of that, but I imagine he's referring to the entire computer line.

    Ditto, and amen, brother. Well, I don't hate the iPhone, but it's not on my buy list right now.

    Great News... well kinda i wish they would give us a date, I dont need to see anything but a time frame (Official) so that i can decide if i should take the plunge now or wait.

    Either way that is good news.

    Yeah, wait until V2 or 3 comes out, maybe they'll replace EDGE :)


    Anyway, Jobs commenting on Macs for the near future really makes me jumpy, can't wait to see what they finally have in-store for us.

    I bet the new imacs will be released when Leopard is released. That is my thinking.

    I just really think that Apple would be 'missing the boat' if they released new iMacs after the height of educational purchases dies down. It really seems like it would be a missed opportunity for the company to unveil new computers and continue to grow sales.

    But then again, this is a rumors site and no one knows for sure!

    In regards to the macs, I think he's probably talking a lot about leopard and possible Solid State drives in the future. I wouldn't be surprised if there was a redesign of the model planned, but it's nothing to keep you from buying right now.

    Well that price keeps me from buying it right now. Not that I can't afford it, but it doesn't give me that good value for the money. Lower the prices, refresh the current model or release a new one. Any of those is good enough for me. Although, I'd prefer an iMac that isn't white.

    It's been almost 300 days since the iMac was last updated. Some resellers seem to be running out of stock. They just need to release something soon. And considering the time between updates, it's likely to be a redesign.

    so you're saying a new design would make it a better value?

    Actually it would. If you don't like the current design that much but you like the new one, it would make it a better value. Also if they just do a refresh now and release a new design early next year, then the current design will have lower resell value.

    However, they wouldn't release a new design without bumping the specs a bit.
