According to CNet TV presenter Brian Tong, Apple is all set to update the iMac with all new Intel Sandy Bridge processors and Thunderbolt. There won’t be a redesign. The new machines will look the same as the old, which is no bad thing.
Brian, a CNET reporter, previously tweeted out information obtained from his sources, claiming that Apple is going to unveil the 2011 iMac line up which will tout Intel Sandy Bridge processors and Thunderbolt.
– EXCLUSIVE: My Sources: New iMacs en route by ocean to U.S. available end of April or 1st week of May. No major cosmetic changes.
– My sources say New iMacs will feature Sandy Bridge and Thunderbolt. No other specifics.
– We’ll see if this pans out, but I’m highly confident in my source. If you’re looking for a new iMac. WAIT FOR IT!
The last iMac update was about eight months ago with Intel’s Core i3, i5 and i7 chips and ATI Radeon graphics. But the MacBook Pros were just updated with quad-core Sandy Bridge processors, and they’re screamers.
Thunderbolt is a new port for high-speed peripherals and displays. Dubbed “one connector to rule them all,” it’s a single 10Gbps cable that consolidates almost all existing ports, from FireWire to USB to miniDisplay to eSATA.
