Shall we start again as some have suggested? According to New York Times technology columnist David Pogue, the updates are due in 2013! Makes comment that Apple still believes in desktop Macs, including both the iMac and the Mac Pro (no comment)! An email to a Pro user by Tim Cook, questioned on the future of the Mac Pro allegedly states "Our pro customers are really important to us...don't worry as we're working on something really great for later next year" My thoughts are: At this stage it's hard to predict when the iMac refresh will take place. To me, the ivy bridge processor adds very little in CPU terms, the GPUs in the 2011 iMacs were fine (ok, so the current stock is better but that is only really relevant to gamers and select few pros - as we have seen with Mac Pro not the group new Apple cares about the most) especially top-end ones, screen excellent so the pressure on Apple to update is less acute as people imagine. Another aspect to consider, IMO would be that of SSD capacity. If the new MacBook Pro takes off, I'd imagine there may even be capacity constraints on the new SSDs so even less likely that Apple will share them out in any refreshed or redesigned iMacs. They are also probably waiting for real world experience of the new heat sink system before transferring that to a redesigned iMac. So, when can we expect a new iMac?
