    I wouldn't say anytime soon maybe in the next three years, the mac pro has only just got a quad core processor in there (before it was 2 X 2 cores, now it's 2 X 4 Cores)

    This was asked only 2 or 3 days ago. The basic answer is no. The iMac uses laptop CPUs. Intel will not be producing a quad-core laptop CPU till next year at the very earliest. So unless Apple change their current iMac idea (basically make it much larger) you'll just have to wait. Also not that 2xDual core is also not possible: laptop and standard desktop Intel CPUs cannot be run in dual or higher configurations.

    Of course we will see a quad core imac, most likely with a 512mb graphics card, 750gb HD, and 2gb ram, standard. I just got a 24 inch c2d, so the way things work is that Apple will rapidly upgrade the entire lineup, making my acquisition obsolete.
