Apple delays iMac orders; Refresh with Thunderbolt I/O, Sandy Bridge processors next Tuesday?

“All current signs point to an iMac refresh sometime next week,” Mark Gurman reports for 9 to 5 Mac.

“The rumors started a few weeks ago when an unsourced report claimed that refreshed iMacs are en route to the United States for a late April or early May launch,” Gurman reports. “Then, just last week, our sources across the globe backed up these claims, saying that iMac shipments and components are very constrained.”

MacDailyNews Take: If so, we’ll be ordering the moment that Apple makes new iMacs available.


  1. My 24″ ’08 iMac is still kicking butt. I’ll be in the market in a couple of years but these systems are built and configured so well I only update every 6-7 years!

  2. To order next week or wait until September when Apple has their annual Buy a Mac, Get a Free iPod Touch promo?

    Maybe they’ll extend the Touch to a iPhone credit this year. Hmmm.

  3. 1-Do Thunderbolt devices beyond MDP monitors exist- not promised-in stock?
    2-Are any Thunderbolt cards available for current generation Mac Pros?
    Show me some real world value to Thunderbolt & maybe I’ll buy a card for my MacPro. I spent the $ to get away from desktop storage & an iMac won’t cut it.
