    I currently have iMac G4 running 10.3.9 with 1GHZ and 256 MB RAM. I think its time to upgrade. I was wondering if I should buy a new iMac now or is there a very very very good possibility that a new one is going to be released soon? I would only wait to buy one if a new design is going to be released but as for tiny upgrades it really wont matter to me.

    If I were to buy a new iMac now and a new one comes out next month will I be able to exchange it just like they did with the iphone when the iphone 3G came out?

    Thank you for anyone that thelps:)

    Referring to the Macrumors buyers guide:

    http://buyersguide.macrumors.com/#iMac

    Last time the iMac was updated was in April, so the possibility of a new iMac coming out soon is pretty good, so I'd wait unless you needed the computer right away.

    Duff-Man says....You ought to search the forums as well as check the buyer's guide as I believe there have been several "should I buy an iMac now or wait" threads in the last week or two....oh yeah!

    I'm definitely going with this especially with those cool new Core 2 Quads coming soon.
