That looks pretty good!
Another day, another rumour designed to piss me off
This one is from Instapaper developer Marco Arment...Predicting the next Mac desktops
I’m guessing, therefore, that we’ll see new iMacs with Ivy Bridge CPUs, and probably with Retina displays, in October or early November.
What? Fuck that.
UPDATE 2: I’ve now heard from multiple sources that while an iMac update is indeed coming this fall, it will not have Retina displays. Oops. Can’t win ‘em all.
Fuck that, once again.
I can understand the delay if the iMac was getting a Retina display, but if it isn't
(& I don't care if it gets one or not)... then there's no reason I can think of to delay until the "Fall". Everything needed for a standard spec bump is ready right now... unless Apple is switching its desktops to Nvidia, like it has switched the MBP to Nvidia, in which case everything needed for a standard spec bump will be ready in July.
OK, this is one developer speculating... but he does say that he has heard this from "multiple sources". I don't know what the guy's track record is like for anything like this.
Unless any concrete information comes out about a much-delayed refresh, I am sticking with my "buy whatever once Mountain Lion is released" plan. 2012 iMac? Great. No 2012 iMac? Fuck it, I'll give in and get a 2011.
