    This is the rumor that is floating in 700 other threads. I really hope it's true. A lot of us are riding on the 27th of this month for a silent update. Only time will tell.

    ugh I hope a mod deletes this thread before it spawns another 8 months of idiocy.

    This is just speculation. You cant wait for every update. You will be waiting every year.

    well

    Ya know. I have read this forum every day since October. Back when I decided to buy a iMac. The first thing I read is, wait until November, a update will happen. So I wait. Then nothing happens. Then it's wait until Macworld, a update will happen. Then nothing happens. What I have learned from all this is.... I am a idiot.

    it is ALWAYS better to wait.

    When you purchase on a pissy-fit the time flies and three months later you are holding some crap while the new-shiny laughs in your broke face.

    Just take it easy guys.

    What they going to put in it? No interesting Core 2 architecture and a GPU upgrade isn't going to set things on fire.

    The logical thing would be for an upgrade when mobile Core i7 comes out in the spring.

    If anything, I'd expect i7 Mac Pros in Feb and iMacs with Snow Leopard in April.

    Its always better to wait.

    Just think, back in 1981 if you had bought one of those shiny newfangled IBM PC 5150's you would be kicking yourself now when you could have waited for an iMac.

    Wait a couple more years I am sure Apple will bring out something better for you.

    New iMac and USB 3.0

    The new USB ver 3.0 is set to release 2nd quarter of 09. Maybe the new iMac will have this technology when they are released in June???

    It's not always better to wait. If you have immediate need for something, I say buy. If you suspect an update is coming soon and you can wait, then wait. There have been a lot of hints that the iMac and Mac Mini will have new releases early in the year, so any trepidation about waiting is probably anticipation and not about a lack of need.

    Uh, no it isn't. USB 3.0 won't be out until 2010.

    APPLE DOESN'T USE DESKTOP CHIPS. There won't be a Nehalem iMac until 2010!

    You'd better mean next spring. They'll put Montevina-clocked chips in it, because it doesn't use Montevina-clocked chips yet.

    since you don't know it, shouldn't you add a question mark to the end of your statement?

    so it is more of a question instead of a declaration.

    Why don't I start a thread that is titled

    "New imacs set to arrive on Feb 3rd"

    Its more speculation than a question. The sentence starting with "apparently" showsa that. A question mark at the end would be nonsensical.

    Actually apparently makes it sound like you have some real evidence, source or inside knowledge that puts across the perception to readers that you know something for sure.

    Semantics are important. Make it clear you don't know anything and are just posting random stuff, thanks!

    Except for using that logic-you would NEVER buy anything new (at least any new electronics device) ever again.

    I have been buying computers since my first Apple 2+ in 1981. Clearly things have changed since then. If you choose to wait for the best, you will only have it for 6 months anyway.

    I want a new mini really bad because my old 1.83 would be PERFECT in the living room as a media server for the TV. That being said, I don't NEED it. If I did, I would buy one now. If you need it now, get it. If you want the newest/best, be prepared to be disappointed no longer than 6 months after your purchase.

    You're right man. You don't need newest if it doesn't have anything that you want to wait. If you just surf in the net and send e-mails you don't need much from your computer.

    I guess sarcasm is wasted on some.

    I was *joking*. No-one NEEDS the next greatest shiniest Mac - Apple haven't yet created the need. People who NEED the latest and greatest only need it for one reason - badges, trophies, medals.

    No, they dont. They did perfectly fine before the latest and greatest was released.

    Not even games have been pushing the limits of todays latest and greatest hardware.
