As previously reported by Degadget back on June 19th, the iMac update due this summer and is expected to be available in 20- and 24-inch versions, while the 17-inch version set to be discontinued. Apple’s next iMac revision is currently tracking for release in August, and will have a brushed aluminum enclosure with measure just 2-inch thick, according to ThinkSecret’s sources. Furthermore, ThinkSecret’s sources says, “The elegant new enclosure will somewhat resemble the current white iMac but is said to feature a shorter space below the actual display, where most of the internals are housed.” The upcoming iMacs are expected to be based on Intel’s Santa Rosa platform with speeds will reach the highest point at 2.4GHz.
That’s pretty relevant to some recent discussions in the comments about which Mac to buy. It would be nice if there were a bunch of early adopters of the new iMac who’d be willing to eBay their “old” iMacs for a fraction of the cost.
