Trust me, it’s a very slow news day. AppleInsider on new features for the new iMac:
One of those features is said to have long been on the wish-lists of many Mac users while the other is expected to cater to the semi-professional audio/video crowd. This is according to cryptic tips from people often familiar with the Mac maker’s future product initiatives, but who declined to elaborate because they were not authorized to discuss the matter in detail.
You’re looking for more substance than that? AppleInsider doesn’t disappoint:
Either way, the new iMac offerings are expected to follow a trend set this spring with the introduction of new MacBook Pros, by which Apple simultaneously shaved retail costs while offering more value through added features such as better battery technology, higher-quality displays, and improved I/O functionality.
Oh, sure. That’s it. Apple will cut prices and add features. Anything else?
Apple is simultaneously said to be working on an industrial design overhaul for the iMac line which could arrive as early as this year… This much has not been corroborated by insiders with any degree of certainty, however. Indications would point to slimmer, sleeker designs akin to the company’s relatively new 24-inch LED-lit Cinema Display.
So, to summarize, Apple is working on an iMac refresh with the possibility of new features. Uh huh. Yeah. Well, that’s good to know. AppleInsider’s LED-lit crystal ball appears to be a little murky.
