THE AppleInsider claims that some Apple resellers in the United States have already been alerted to potential reductions in the supply of iMacs, indicating that the line of desktops all-in-one of the company to be updated soon. Among the current models, the 21.5-inch configurations should be the first to disappear from the market, as the rumor points that their production is being phased out, model by model.
The company's resellers are being alerted to clear their respective stocks quickly, so there is a good chance that we will start to see some discounts on current iMac models that are no longer modest, not to mention. For the new ones, Apple is likely to stop using Core 2 Duo processors and go straight to Intel's Core i5 and i7 chips, in two- and four-core editions.
There is also little hope that the new machines will offer faster interfaces for connecting peripherals, such as USB 3.0 and a faster edition of the FireWire port than the current one. These options are also expected in a review of the Mac Pro, which should have been carried out by Apple some time ago.
This rumor about updating iMacs came shortly after the appearance of books in online stores indicating an update to the commercial application suites that Apple offers its users, for tasks of creativity and productivity. With all this, it is likely that the company will announce news for the Mac in a few weeks, in a similar way to an event made by it in 2007.
