Apple’s redesigned 2012 iMacs to use G-Tech anti-reflective glass displays, says source

“Should the latest rumors pan out, a completely redesigned family of Apple’s iMacs due for release later this year will not only arrive noticeably slimmer than existing models but may also be the first of the company’s desktops to feature anti-reflective displays,” Katie Marsal reports for AppleInsider.

“That’s according to a brief report published Monday by hit-or-miss DigiTimes, in which the taiwanese rumor publication claims that G-Tech is ramping up its monthly production capacity of cover glass from 1.8 million units to 3 million units in an effort to supply 25% or more of the cover glass for Apple’s new iPad,” Marsal reports. “The report curiously cites sources in adding that ‘G-Tech is also expected to supply AR (anti-reflective) glass solutions for Apple’s all-in-one (AIO) PCs with the new products to also serve as a growth driver for G-Tech.'”

  1. iMac with anti-glare? I’m in line!

    iPad with anti-glare? I’ll trade up!

    Are folks at Apple growing up and seeing things ‘clearly’ now?

      1. i feel for you, jaundiced. The Mac Pro is a flagship device that has been neglected for far too long. Remember the days of the PowerMac when Apple battled to have the fastest desktop with the original PPC series (6100, 7100, and 8100) and the G3 and G4. Then G4 clock speeds stalled at ~300-500 MHz and things weren’t looking good. Then Apple rocks back with powerful Intel-based Mac Pros. Now Apple has let the Mac Pros languish…

        Is Apple on a six year cycle for pro desktop computers?

  2. iMac with anti-glare? I’m in line!

    iMac without anti-glare? I’m still in line!

    I need a newer Mac as my old iMac has seen better days! So Apple’s got me either way. Hurry up summer and hurry up OS X 10.8!

  3. I’d rather see an easily replaceable hard drive. Come on, Apple! You can do it with the tiny 13″ MBP, why not with the big-ass iMac? Put in two 2.5″ drive bays, and let people upgrade and replace. Sacrifice the stupid optical drive if necessary, but stop burying the hard drive.

  4. Glad I don’t have an iMac, I would have to use it without my glasses. I have polarised lenses, and the glass on iMac screens goes completely black when I look at the screen on the ones at work. Which would be a real problem at home.

  5. Would be nice if you could retrofit an older iMac (’09 to present) with a new piece of glass. My new 27″ is great, but reflections annoy me.

    My iMac CoreDuo 20 has anti-glare and it is still the easiest of my Macs to view in a bright room.

  6. Please! Let it be so.
    Reflective, mirror finish screens are so 20th century.
    Grew up watching family reflections on the telly… Now my reflection in the iPad.
    Ready for a new CInema Display… when it’s anti-reflective again.
