  • New iMacs, MacBooks coming?


    Eric Savitz, at the Tech Trader Daily blog at Barron's Online, reports that Wedge Partners, an "independent equity analysis firm with a focus on the technology and media industries," is claiming that Apple is weeks away from an announcement of redesigned iMacs and minor changes to the Mac Book line.

    According to Barron's, Wedge Partners
    ... assert in a note today that the company will release both new iMacs and new MacBooks “in the next several weeks.”

    Wedge sees a redesigned iMac with a “thinner, organic design, likely with smoothed or rounded edges. The MacBook redesign “is likely to be limited,” Wedge asserts.
    Price cuts are also expected ahead of the Windows 7 release and busy holiday season. While the rumor mill churns wildly, especially late in the year and has been dead wrong more often than right, a report from a financial observer should carry a little more weight than the standard fanboi fantasy. These people get paid - a lot - to get it right.

    AppleInsider notes the Barron's report and reviews last month's vague but interesting rumors about new audio/video authoring capabilities on the iMac and a feature that has supposedly "long been on the wish-lists of many Mac users."

    I'll be accepting guesses on just what that might be in comments. What's been long on your list?

      If they did update I would not be surprised in the slightest.. save yourself some of the trouble of being sucked in by Apple and keep whatever you have. It's really not worth it. I'm waiting until my C2D black Macbook completely stops kicking before I give apple another dime for a laptop and even then I think it'll be a refurb this time.

      of course. This is the second time this has happened to me. I bought the original ipod nano and 2 days later new ipods came out. Fortunately I was able to return and get the new one. Now, I bought my imac yesterday, its not even in yet, and there might be brand new ones in a couple weeks? I wanted the best for at least a month. Come on!

      I seriously doubt blu ray will be in the new models. Glad I own
      MacBook air ! Anyway, 3.0 ghz and a similar construction casing of the aluminum models but in plastic.

      would be great to Too bad I just bought a brand new 24" 2.9 model, but worth it...

      I don't know weather to laugh or cry now. I was all ready to order a iMac this morning. Was doing my usual run of reading the main mac sites and saw this article

      I hope its only a few weeks before we see the new iMacs, because now that I am ready to buy and I hate waiting for news that may or may not be true.

      How long to you wait. 1 week, 2, 3 ??

      Same boat, my wife just returned from the USA, last Thursday she picked me up a new MBP 15",Isn't it always the way!!

      But I'm extremely happy with, $1000.00 cheaper is the US than in Oz, plus even get the tax back when she left the US.

      Guess i cant complain
