    I was at a retailer today, and was told that the new iMac is coming in three weeks. This person mentioned a processor bump and not a new design. We shall see...

    Let's hope he's right about the time and wrong about the redesign. :D

    Wow, go figure. The guy has managed to put two and two together and realised that there MAY be product updates at WWDC.

    Give that man a coconut!

    He was definitely speaking from knowledge of current/coming inventory of iMacs, not any Apple events.

    Of course :rolleyes:, and he doesn't realise that 3 weeks more or less coincides with the start of WWDC?

    Naivete.

    I would want to see a touchsreen iMac. I would use it for home theater.

    As long we get a new processor that takes full advantage of Leopard I'm happy.

    Yes. Should be about $129 if previous OSX releases are anything to go by.

    Hmm, hope they do update them! But, a new design would make things more interesting.

    I'm really hoping it's a radical redesign to look like the iPhone aesthetic, and not just taking the regular case and turning it black. If the case update doesn't come, I won't be buying a new computer until it does - and I've got a 5 year old 700 MHz G4 iMac. I'm praying that Apple gives us a gorgeous new case design at WWDC so I can run out and order one immediately.

    I just hope sooner or later all macs will have a built-in tv tuner *crosses fingers*

    I cant wait to see the new iMac, I still made my mind up for the Mac Pro, just hope by October they will have new displays out with atleast the iSight built in

    How about instead of a TV-tuner, inputs for the Cinema Displays and iMacs that compare to the Dell displays.
    I don't have a EDTV for the Wii so an iMac with component would be sweet. :)

    You have more patience then me. I'm on a 1Ghz G4 iMac and I am getting the next update of the iMac even if all they changed was the packaging. ;)

    Hmmm, a guy who wants to sell you a computer now says that in three weeks Apple is going to update the iMac but it will only be a speed bump and not a resdesign. That sounds like the definition of an unbiased source.

    By the way, unless Apple goes with Santa Rosa or decides to start using Conroe in the iMac, there is no possibility of a speed bump.

    Well, it's not easy - my computer is aging badly (it can barely even play medium-res Quicktime movies anymore!) but I really don't want to get one of the current models only to see something absolutely amazing looking come out four months later. But I'm praying for a case redesign for WWDC :)

    I hope this is true, but I doubt we'll see it at WWDC. Since WWDC is usually a "pro" event, if we see anything updated hardware-wise, I figure it'll be the MacBook Pro. (w/ Santa Rosa and possibly even a new case design) Just my prediction, though.

    They may come next week with the new MBPs :p

    Hope to see a GPU bump for them too, the X1600 is getting quite long in tooth.

    The Core 2 Duos won't take full advantage of Leopard??

    It wouldn't surprise me if something came at WWDC but this guy is just guessing the people at stores do not know any more than we do.

    The NAPA based ones won't.
