    Pattern Apple Updates

    Here is the quick pattern: Sept. 9th (2nd Week) iPod Update, Oct.14th (2nd Week) Macbook Update, and Now Nov. 11th (2nd Week) iMac Update.

    Unless they give you four slots, 8GB is impossible right now. Each 4GB dimm costs $2k or so. Otherwise the predictions seem about right (except for that insanely fast 'low end' processor)

    You can rest assured that there will not be any new Apple news or hardware on November 11th. November 11th is Veterans' Day, a national holiday.

    I don't think Apple will drop FireWire from the iMacs. Tons of iMacs are still use in video editing and education environments. Apple couldn't afford to drop it. MacBooks... maybe Apple had a reason. iMacs? Too beneficial.

    I don't believe that iMacs use FB-DIMMS and the poster mentioned SDRAM DDR3. I can't find them in 4GB sizes on Newegg though, so I'll take your word here. I'm pretty sure they'd put in two more slots though :)

    They will definitely not drop Firewire in the iMac. Cause professionals are known to use iMacs instead of the Mac Pro (they seriously don't expect people to buy Mac Pros because of FW). They may however drop it in the 20" model (for some stupid reason).

    As for the 8GB, definitely not happening. They will have to redesign the insides of the thing to fit in the extra two slots. Although, the chipset et al does support 8GB, so Snow Leopard might just enable it software wise.

    I am really excited about these. They need an update. I am assuming they will ship around the same time the new Apple Displays ship.

    It's funny that you say it'll have the centrino 2 chipset while you're predicting 9400M at the same time. Having 2 chipsets sure would be smart :rolleyes:

    9400M is an NVIDIA graphics card.
    Intel Centrino 2 is a processor.
    Montevina is the chipset.

    There's firewire (check my NOTE 2).

    They just added Firewire 800 on the alu iMac, they wont remove it. The most they will do is drop Firewire 400.

    Oh god, that's true, this happens to me because I'm not American. I just predicted the date on a tuesday somewhere in the middle of November.

    There's firewire (check my NOTE 2).
