  • iMac Refresh Imminent

    9 to 5 Mac is reporting Apple has started notifying customers that their recent iMac purchases would not be shipped till next week. This seems to confirm CNET’s Brian Tong ‘s report new iMacs would be due out by the end of April or the first week in May.

    Prospective iMac owners have eagerly anticipated the update after the Macbook Pro refresh saw the implementation of Intel’s Sandy Bridge processors and the Thunderbolt I/O technology. The iMac refresh is expected to include processor and I/O bumps the Macbook’s had as well as an increase in the base hard drive size to 1TB expandable to 3TB. The rumored change in screen sizes and case design appear have been just that, rumor.

    Also, loose-lipped Apple employees have splashed message boards at MacRumors.com and 9 to 5 Mac with rumors of a $100 price drop on current iMac models starting this Friday in store. All things considered that’s hardly incentive to purchase a Sandy Bridge and Thunderbolt-less iMac.

    What would you, the ModMyi community, like to see in the new iMacs?

      Thanks Mate. But the Windows needs to be running 24/7 to Record TV programs. So a VM running windows all the time would be fine, but it needs the USB TV tuner access from within the VM. The linked app will not do that.

      As you may know, you can install Winblows on your Mac as a secondary OS (dual-boot) and use it only when you need to stream media to your 360.

      I'll keep an eye out to see if there are other solutions; but you can't go wrong with a Mac. I used Winblows for over 15 years, until last September when I got my iMac and I don't regret the switch: this has been my favorite computer of all time! (out of more than 10 I've had)

      There are quite a few VMs for Mac. Check VirtualBox or Parallels Desktop out. Parallels is supposed to integrate windows programs into Mac "natively", but I've never actually used it. Hope this helps.
