It’s not a question of if but when Apple will refresh their line of iMacs. Now a report by way of 9to5Mac indicates that Apple will probably begin shipping an updated version of the all-in-one computer, which is said to include Intel’s Sandy Bridge processors and Thunderbolt connectivity, in the next few weeks. Unfortunately, rumors don’t point to a touchscreen version, but it seems inevitable given the popularity of their iPad.
As of this posting, Apple’s online store is not associating any shipping delays with the iMacs, which, generally speaking a strong indicator of a product refresh. However, a source close to 9to5Mac says that we can expect the delays to transpire later this week and that one Apple customer has indicated that their education order of the iMac has been delayed to May 2nd.
