    Just as interesting are the rumors of other changes in the iMac to be released in June. Who is this and what are the sources? I question the reliablity as the link here also says Apple would hold a press conferance to relaease Leapord in April.

    LoopRumors has been hit-or-miss for most of its life, but seems to be doing better over the last year or so. They haven't nailed anything dead-on, but have had a few tidbits that at least partially panned out.

    I'll either get a black iMac or a Mac Pro and 23" ACD. I don't want a white iMac. However I am in the give me a midrange tower to go with a 23" ACD. But that a few hundred other threads.

    White, Red or Aluminium... otherwise it'd look just like a Dell, HP etc.

    I second that, an aluminum 24" iMac that looked like an ACD with a chin would be great.

    I think they should market it available in stores as the 24" iMac Pro.

    aluminum color
    highest bto processor option that new specs offer
    2GB RAM
    500GB HDD
    7600GT video
    wireless KB & MM

    available in stores w/o having to CTO. I think that would be a hot seller.

    I am hoping for an iMac redesign. I am in the market for one. A metal enclosure would be awesome, but doubtful.

    I've got to believe they're going to start offering glossy screens as an option in the iMacs.

    I doubt it. You never see glossy screens on larger LCDs, it's only the smaller (laptop) ones.

    Sony displays have had glossy displays for a long while now. They're stunning too. Too bad they stopped selling monitors :(

    I wll grab a black imac if the price differential is not too great. I am still not convinced we won't just get a speedbump, and then a major refresh in the fall.

    A black iMac with touchscreen technology would be pretty awsome. I might buy one for home theater purposes.

    Why is Apple's upgrades mainly colours? I hope they will diversify a bit.

    Anyway, few more colours will only be good. An orange or pink for the girls. I'll take the aluminium to go with my MBP.

    20" becomes the new low end, 250 Gig HD, 1 gig Ram (single chip)
    23 " New middle of the line, 500 Gig HD,1 gig Ram (single chip), better graphics card
    30" Black imac, 500 Gig HD, 2 gig Ram, better graphics card

    Same form factor with a few tweaks.
