Will the next refresh fix the imac's screen problem?

    I am looking to buy a new 27" i7 imac but I'm unsure of whether to do so now or wait until a refresh in hopes that their screen problems (yellow tint) may be resolved.
    I am an artist and would mostly be using the system for digital painting in programs like Corel Painter and some Photoshop, so a true representation of what I am painting displayed on screen in "VERY" important.
    I was also wondering if the refresh will bring back a more "matte" style of screen like the old white imacs or will they retain their "glossy" appearance?
    Thanks for any advice or info, it is greatly appreciated.

    Since they're aware of the problem, it can mean a change in the manufacturing process or whatever to prevent it from happening. But this is no guarantee that there wont be some other problem. Mac's seem to have their fair share of screen problems. So without a crystal ball to know the future, there's no way to say.

    Equally, there's no way to say whether or not they'll keep with the glossy screen. They probably will though.

    Matte would need at least a slight redesign because currently there is a glass in front of the panel. As for issues, nobody knows. It's likely due backlight so it too might need a redesign to be fixed
