Ok, i am not saying this is what is HAPPENING, what i am saying is what i think is the way in my opinion apple should go with this. So we have all heared about the suspicion of brushed aluminum imacs, first i will say is what i dont agree with. White plastic (consumer) imacs being replaced with these super dooper brushed aluminum imacs. Why? White = consumer, Aluminum = pro. Now before i get flamed with, WHAT ABOUT MAC MINIS!!!. mac minis are that colour imo to match in with the cinema displays. Anyway here is what i think there should be. Don't discontinue the normal imac (upgrade it) but keep the look. But start a new line, called the "imac pro" we have a macbook and a macbook pro? why not have a imac and an imac pro? basically an all-in-one pro line to work natively with your macbook pro. perhaps a neat spot to keep your macbook tucked underneath? a possibility options to use ur MBP as an external display? Maybee use ur MBP's keyboard and trackpad for the keyboard and mouse on your "Imac Pro" The possibilities are endless. But basically what id like to see is an imac and an imac pro. thoughts?
