FoxNews.com's Clayton Morris reports that an update to Apple's aging iMac lineup is "imminent", although he does not offer additional details on a specific timeframe or expected improvements.
Get ready, because the iMacs are coming.

I've been hoping for an iMac update and it looks like my wish is about to come true! Multiple sources tell me that a new lineup of desktop machines from Apple is imminent.
As we noted last week, Apple's retail stores have been experiencing shortages of 27-inch iMacs, and multiple reports have suggested that updated iMacs will be arriving in the coming weeks.




Morris has been an occasional source for Apple rumors, but carries a mixed track record. While he offered a fairly good summary of what Apple's digital textbook media event earlier this year would entail, other predictions such as his claims of iOS 4.0 and iLife 2010 discussion at the media event introducing the original iPad failed to pan out.

My hairdresser told me this morning she bought a 27 inch iMac yesterday from the local Apple Store. Unlucky :p

But this is good news :D Retina displays maybe?

I am glad that I wasn't hesitant back in January when I bought my iMac. Otherwise, I'd still be sitting here for a refresh.

Morris is reliable... doesn't toss out guesses for attention; occasionally on TWiT; and hey, married to the lovely, Natalie Del Conte, a tech force in her own right. But this is fairly obvious. Still, nice to have some confirmation. Suspect it will be the warm up act for next Wed. Cook will tell us how popular ML has been and quickly show 'em off, but not spend a whole lot of time on them. Maybe 5 min. Big question is will this be the model where they axe the optical drive.

I'm only waiting for a couple of months and already it seems too long.
Can afford to wait, since I'm not losing money over it.
But the waiting game is a deadly trap. If you wait for some time, you don't want to "waste" that time and... keep waiting.

Still, after more than a year without an update, I think it's the sensible thing to do.

This could be the moment for an updated iMac. The Icelandic Apple retailer just put their remaining stock of 27" iMac on sale. All their 21" iMacs are out of stock.

I've got to the point of having to say, that i'll believe it when I see them in the store or in the on-line store for me to purchase.

Just hope the Mac Mini will get some love too.. I still don't like the All-in-one throw-everything-away-when-one-part-breaks concept.

Stupid question.... Does the iMac line include the Mac Mini?
no, because iMac != Mac Mini != Mac Pro != MacBook and so on ;)

It is more like: pay-a-****-load-of-money-to-fix-a-tiny-part

Had my iMac now for 6 years and nothing has broken. Much better than my PCs that ended up in the trash after 3.
