Rumor has it that Apple will soon launch a cheaper iMac to go along with the updated versions of the current lineup. I'd like to hear your thought on potential hardware, and what corners Apple may cut to get the price down. Do you expect a different design? Do you expect it to be made of different materials (like iPhone 5C being made of plastic)? The lowest end 21.5 inch iMac already comes with an integrated GPU, so I'm guessing we'll see the same in a cheaper model, perhaps downgraded from Iris Pro to simply Iris. I doubt they'll go for a non-Iris model though. I expect either a very small SSD (128-256) or a 1TB HDD to be the default, with 8 gigs of 1600MHz RAM. I expect the CPU to be a low end i5, and I think the machine will be quite similar to current 21.5 inch models, with the other 21.5 maybe getting a 4K retina makeover and the cheaper model staying 1920x1080. Similarly I think Apple will run two simultaneous lines of 27 inch models, a 5k retina (only available with the highest end GPU, presumably GTX 880m, or if Apple and Nvidia has something going that they told nobody about, GTX 880MX, which would be sweet!). In terms of design I sincerely doubt anything will change for any of the iMac models, with the exception of maybe a slimmer bezel, but I think that's a bit unlikely. I also don't think we'll see a change in screen sizes. What about you guys?
