Shouldn't the iMac Buyer's Guide here on MR be switched to "green?"

If David Pogue of the NYT can be trusted, Apple's intent for the iMac cannot be more clear. The update is coming in 2013. Although the Apple executive source isn't named, this is the most relevant statement out there on the future of the iMac. Shouldn't MacRumors base the Buyer's Guide on this information? Or does MR believe that the quoted executive is being intentionally misleading with this statement?

Apple haven't updated the iMac so why would the buyers guide be updated?

The buyers guide is not a subjective guide, merely reflects the days past launch in comparison to the average life cycle of that product. (400 days vs. 276 days from memory so will stay red until the change)

I'd hope that wouldn't be the case if there were solid news (say, if Apple publicly announced no refresh before 2013). But a single, ambiguous (in that it might indicate a 2013 redesign but allow for a refresh before then) article with an undisclosed source would certainly be insufficient evidence for any strong buying recommendation.

First, the Buyer's Guide is based on time since last refresh and absolutely nothing else. No rumors ever get fed into it to update it.

Second, you're taking Pogue's comments too literally. Expect an iMac redesign in 2013. And a refresh soon, still.
