    Looking at more of the pictures, it seems that it is saying the i3, i5, i7 chips are the "new" chips. The images are talking about the current iMacs.

    It seems a refresh on iMacs is bound to happen *very* soon then. I put my money on next Tuesday. Also the whole new architecture is bound to be the Sandy Bridge refresh Intel just pushed.

    I think it has said that since the iMac was refreshed last. They called the 2009 Mac Pro new even after it had been out for a year

    Did they put Sandy Bridge CPUs in them or something? :confused: I'm dead confused about what they did in this refresh.

    The images are not for the Sandy Bridge iMacs. They are for the current gen iMacs.

    I don't get it. I try and go to apple.com and get "ALL NEW IMAC" as the splash page, yet the iMac is unchanged? **** whoever is running Apple's website.

    Nope, the most recent refresh was when they switched to i3 and i5 over C2D chips.

    That's what they changed their iMac page to when they last updated the iMacs last summer. Nothing is different, nor is any upgraded hinted to happen soon.

    Mac Pro owners might remember how the Mac Pro page on Apple's website talked about "brand new" gt 120 cards for over a couple years now. I think it was gt 120 anyways, but it had to do with the graphics cards.

    they would not sell many if they honestly would advertise them as


    "our ultimate all-in-one , turbocharged
    introducing the xx month old iMac with already xx month old processor architecture and xx month old graphicscards , we know there are better graphic cards out there but with higher power consumption and because we care about your electricity bill we decided against them , by the way the PSU inside would not even be able to handle the higher power consumption and the case and fans could not handle the heat of a better graphicscard "


    would you buy something if you read a advert like that? because there are much better graphics cards on the market , but desktop graphics cards which can draw easy up to 200watt and more , so not suitable for a AIO if you want to keep it thin,
    not to mention that the case design would not be able to cope with the heat output of such a desktop graphics card, therefore you get the newest and best suitable for the iMac, and they will always refer to the newest iMac on the market as the newest iMac

    ok there had been exceptions in the past when apple dit "silent" upgrades , last seen on the Mac mini G4 1.5ghz to my knowledge which was never officially sold , i had one of them in my hands , even the box still said 1.42 ghz so did the mini itself underneath , but in realty had 1.5ghz and a ram upgrade of the graphics from 32mb to 64mb
