Is Apple going to upgrade the processors and hard drives on the Aluminum iMac in the coming weeks?
- Apple is currently offereing up to $400 off of the refurbished Aluminum iMacs.
- MacNotes.de, a German site thinks it will be this week
- Intel is trying to phase out the Merom procssors that the current iMacs have (see MacBook Updates) for Penryns
- iMacs use the same class of processors as the MacBook/Pros.
- Apple is on an update tear lately with something, howver small, every week. The SDK might be next weeks goodie but how long can they go without throwing a processor update at the iMac?
So if you can wait a bit (and resist the $400 off refurb) on purchasing an iMac, you might be rewarded with some better specs.
