    One way or another .. it's quite a bizzare statement.

    No iMac in 2013 means there could be iMac refresh cycle on 2012 but there won't be another in 2013 .. Means it would be updated in the next 2 years minimum.

    Or if there is no new iMac this year, means there won't be another for the next year. So it could be 2011 iMac lasts for 3 years.

    The 2011 iMac can't last for 3 years, no sane and informed people would ever buy it.

    Nobody really knows. Opinion is divided even amongst generally knowledgable MR forumites. If you look around some polls show 55% expect a refresh in July and close to 30% expect no refresh until 2013....

    I think it's probable that we'll see a speed-bump with the latest processor and USB3 in time with Mountain Lion, but in 2013 — around May — we'll see a completely new iMac.

    Did you?

    Looks like the iMac will receive either a redesign or spec bump... or some combination of both like the Macbook Pro... this year. The only question is when? The answer is most likely between July and October so any which way you slice it... it's not that far from now.

    Yes, and I interpreted this way: "The spokesman made a mistake. The Mac Pro will se a renewal in 2013, but it's obvious that the iMac will be updated way before 2013".

    I think Tim Cook tried to remedy at a really bad mistake made by the spokesman, who let us think that the iMac won't see an update until 2013 — which is absurd.

    A redesigned iMac in 2013 is just my theory.
