23-inch iMac expected soon
September 1, 2006
AppleInsider “has learned” that Apple will be soon be announcing a 23-inch model of its all-in-one iMac desktop, to be paired a switch to Intel’s new Core 2 Duo “Merom” chips in those products. The obvious time would be during next week’s media event by CEO Steve Jobs, though the rumors only specify “September” as the launch date for this new formfactor. It is also more than likely that the Core 2 updates will extend to the MacBook Pro portables as well, enabling me to, at long last, purchase one. Recent reports of Mac Mini shortages suggest that new models of those computers are on the way as well, and an iTunes movie store is supposedly just around the corner. More updates are sure to follow, so stay tuned.
