    As the title states ... are there any rumors as to when the next media event may be? I am particularly interested as I am hoping this will be an event which updates the desktop range of Macs.

    Best bet is Macworld '09. I don't think there will be any other event until then.

    http://forums.macrumors.com/showpost.php?p=6402419&postcount=4 <-- My thoughts as to why an iMac speed bump is due in 2-4 weeks.

    PS. The next updates for iMac's will be speed bumps of current models, which wouldn't justify a big announcement at MacWorld anyway.

    I agree with the ~4-week estimate, but I think there is a bigger architectural change coming, isn't there? The current iMac is a Penryn processor sitting on a Santa Rosa board; it is my understanding that they aren't yet Montevina.

    The current iMac chip is a quasi-Montevina (I won't get into it), and it's true that the next speed bumps would probably include a proper full Montevina.

    The next big change to iMac's will probably be Quad-core, which in most peoples minds can't happen until mid-2009, hence why a speed bump in the next >4 weeks is more likely than not.

    Board upgrade

    Wonder if the true montevina architecture would involve a board upgrade that could take more than 4 GB of RAM...

    theoretically the new MBP and I think MB can take 8GB now with 2 4GB DDR3 sticks. Apple officially only supports up to 4GB. That'll be changing within 8-9 months anyhow.
