I'm still trying to convert my husband from PC Boat Anchor style machines to Macs... he's a gamer mostly, but I play the same games as he does on my Bootcamped MB Pro. Despite my accolades of gaming performance under Bootcamp, he's still not ready to switch.
NOW... if the new iMacs come configured with AMD's new Radeon™ HD Technology I may be able to sway him. Assuming they come with Ivory Bridge processors as well, I may have him sold and we will be selling off the Boat Anchor i7 PC he's using.. (and I get to redecorate the space with something more... compact!)
2011 Mac Mini (Lion Server) 2.0 i5 8GB/500GB
2011 MacBook Pro 15" (Mountain Lion GM) 2.4 Quad i7 16GB/512GB OCZ Vertex 4 SSD
2010 MacBook Air 11" (Mountain Lion) Core 2 Duo 2GB/64GB
1999 iMac (OS 9.2) PowerPC 750 G3 1GB/64GB
Airport Extreme & Airport Express
iPad 1/32 GB Wi-fi
New iPad/64 GB Wi-fi
Apple TV 2 (720p)
iPod Classic 80GB
iPod Nano 16GB
I'm not sure there will be much that would get me to upgrade, I also don't see any major changes coming to the iMac, I have a feeling it will just be a spec bump update, faster processors, more ram, better video card, etc. Possiblely stock sdd on one of the higher end models, though I'm not sure they have come down in price enough to be in a stock config on an iMac where the only real benefit is speed(smaller physical size and power usage make the case for them being stock in laptops like the air even with the added cost, but for the iMac neither size nor power usage are concerns) other than that the only new feature I can think of that might be added (and I see it as a long shot) would be support for the new gigabit wifi, apple is usually among the first to support new standards. I don't see this as being iMac specific though as it would likely also be in the new MacBooks and revisions to the current apple branded wifi routers.
well as seeing as I am sitting infront of a 24" iMac that has major burn in on the screen and is starting to show it's age, I am all in on almost anything that they announce.
But I have always thought it would be great to have a 2nd drive bay and now with the death cloud that seems to be around the Mac Pro this could be the last nail in the coffin for the Pro, or could it be the start of the iMac Pro? (or some SSD combo or something)
ya I am right pissed, not sure why or when it happened but has been there for about a year. I work on this bad boy all day every day, and keep my iChat buddy list in the same spot, I can see it even when it's not there, only really on a white back ground but there is some other stuff, as well all on the left side of the screen.
