Apple may release an all-new ‘mid-2014′ 27-inch iMac soon

Following a previous accidental mention on Tuesday of an updated iMac Mini on Apple’s website, the company has apparently spilled the proverbial beans on another upcoming product that should have been kept under wraps. French site ConsoMac has discovered a mid-2014 iMac mention on Apple’s site in a chart detailing what kind of Windows versions Apple’s iMacs support, just as was the case with the 2014 iMac mini refresh.

Cheaper iMac Specs and Price

The cheaper iMac you’ve been waiting for is finally here

By on June 18, 2014 at 8:30 AM.

The cheaper iMac you’ve been waiting for is finally here

The cheaper iMac that was mentioned in various reports in preceding weeks is now listed on Apple’s online store, a 21.5-inch model priced at $1,099. The entry-level iMac joins the existing 21.5-inch and 27-inch versions, being $200 cheaper than the 21.5-inch model that sells for $1,299. However, because it’s cheaper, the new iMac also has less impressive hardware, packing a 1.4GHz dual-core Intel Core i5 processor – all other iMacs have quad-core CPUs – and an Intel HD Graphics 5000. Other specs include 8GB of memory and a 500GB hard drive. The new iMac can be purchased immediately and will ship in 24 hours. More →

New iMacs are coming, but they’re not the Retina iMacs we’re waiting for

Apple will reportedly update its iMac line next week, French publication MacGeneration has learned, although the new iMac models won’t feature Retina displays. Instead, the new iMacs said to be coming next week will receive a processor bump and possibly new Thunderbolt 2 ports. The news apparently comes from the same source who accurately predicted the launch of new MacBook Airs. More →

It looks like Apple might unveil new iMacs next week at WWDC

Shipping times for the iMac have increased to 3–5 business days, adding credence to a recent rumor that Apple will launch a new cheaper iMac at its annual Worldwide Developers Conference next week. First noted by AppleInsider, each of the base configurations of the iMac now has a longer than normal shipping time on Apple’s online store, up from the typical shipping time of “Within 24 hours” for most Mac products.

Retina MacBook Air Release Date

Apple reportedly launching Retina MacBook Air and cheaper iMac this year

Apple reportedly launching Retina MacBook Air and cheaper iMac this year

Apple’s iMac computer lineup is gorgeous, sleek and powerful, but the models that make up the iMac family are very pricey. The MacBook Air lineup is thin, well-designed and quite capable, but there is no ultra-high resolution option like there is in the MacBook Pro family. According to a new report from an extremely reliable source, Apple is righting both of those wrongs in 2014. More →

Mac Pro Benchmarks

Even at $7,000, the new Mac Pro is only 8% faster than an iMac

Even at $7,000, the new Mac Pro is only 8% faster than an iMac

Apple gave the world a preview of the Mac Pro earlier this year during WWDC 2013, and then it fully unveiled its new workhorse during a press conference back in October. The company wouldn’t commit to a firm release date at either event, however, which is obviously very uncharacteristic for Apple. The wait finally ended last week on Thursday, when Apple finally released its new Mac Pro in limited supply. Starting at $3,000, the new Mac Pro is not a consumer machine by any stretch of the imagination — but does all that cash really land business users a setup that performs significantly better than Apple’s consumer grade Mac computers?

Apple iMac Delay Silver Price

Will the price of silver double because of… Apple?

Will the price of silver double because of… Apple?

We’ve already published our WTF of the week this week, but one report that ties Apple to the price of precious metals is definitely in the running for a close second. Money Morning’s Peter Krauth reports that “Apple is giving us some surprising indications that the demand for silver is much higher than its current price would have us believe.” Of course, there are plenty of factors that contribute to the price of silver at any given time, but Krauth believes that one of the first signs that demand is being misrepresented by price was the delay of the 27-inch iMac in January. Apple never said what caused the delay, but one popular rumor was that there was a shortage of industrial silver in China.

Apple iMac Manufacturing

Apple may have finally fixed its iMac manufacturing problems

Apple may have finally fixed its iMac manufacturing problems

Apple’s (AAPL) new 27-inch iMacs are truly terrific all-in-one desktops, but the company has so far had trouble manufacturing enough of them to start shipping. But now BrightWire is citing a report in the China Times claiming that Apple and its supply chain partners late last year finally figured out how to get more consistent manufacturing yields on the 27-inch iMac and started mass producing the computer in December. What this means, says BrightWire, is that new iMac shipments will get a boost to start the new year and “are expected to remain stable through Q1 2013.”

Apple iMac 2013 review, best desktop

The Boy Genius Report: Apple’s iMac takes desktop crown

The Boy Genius Report: Apple’s iMac takes desktop crown

Apple’s (AAPL) iMac has been the star of the all-in-one desktop category ever since it made its debut in 1998. Over the years, Apple has taken their usual strategy of refinement and churned out some of the  best desktops in the world — forgetting the iMac G4. The iMac itself hasn’t changed too much since Apple settled on a size and shape. First it was white glossy plastic, then alunimum. But for the last while, you’d hardly be able to tell the difference between a new iMac and one from 2007. This year, however, Apple brought to market a brand new iMac, one with 5 milimeter thin bezels, an amazing laminated display which finally reduces all of the glare and reflections of the screen, and advancements in hard drive storage with the Fusion drive. Even Apple’s packaging has got smaller, lighter, and better. More →

Shipping times for 21-inch iMacs increase to 2-3 weeks

If you’re just getting around to ordering your 21-inch iMac, don’t expect it to arrive in just one week. MacRumors points out that shipping time estimates for Apple’s (AAPL) 21-inch iMacs have increased to two to three weeks in many European online Apple stores. The 21-inch version of Apple’s newest super-slim desktop computer has typically shipped within seven to ten days of being ordered and has usually not experienced the kinds of delays that we’ve seen with the 27-inch iMac models that are likely to finally start shipping next month.

27-inch iMac Supply

27-inch iMac supply could be light through end of February

27-inch iMac supply could be light through end of February

Apple’s (AAPL) new iMac computers are an engineering feat, but the All-in-One’s striking design apparently has some downsides. Numerous reports have suggested Apple’s manufacturing partner is having difficulties with the processes required to assemble the new iMac, which is just 5 millimeters thick at its edges. The case design is made possible by an “advanced welding process” that has proven difficult to accomplish, and now a new report suggests Apple’s display panel supplier is having yield issues as well.
