    Hi Guys,

    Based on Latest update how come iMac 27" is cost US$ 1999 but in the Singapore S$ 2888 if we convert to US$ that 2,315.40 with the currency rate 1.25.

    Any latest update when new iMac is release.

    That's normal. Apple doesn't convert prices from USD to local exactly. There are lots of factors - tax for one. US prices are displayed without tax, I don't know if Singapore has VAT or equivalent. Import duties etc have an effect as well. Apple do sometimes change their prices to reflect currency changes but they tend to wait until a product is updated. (For example, iPad one was £429 in the UK, iPad two is £399).

    An iMac update can be expected to bring it inline with the new MBPs. Expect a processor bump, thunderbolt and maybe improved graphics. There is no strong indication of a timeframe, but I personally would expect one in the next 2-3 months. Nothing sure there though!
