Apple’s (AAPL) rumored October 23rd iPad mini event is starting to sound really packed. Along with the smaller tablet, the Cupertino-based company is expected to announced a 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display as well as updated iMacs. Chinese website WeiPhone has posted an image of what it claims is from Apple’s new iMacs. The new desktops are said to be “considerably thinner than the current form factor, with the machine’s thickness almost impossible to gauge when viewed from the side.” The iMac’s squared-off rear design will also be reportedly be replaced with a curvier one that resembles a water droplet. Additionally, the iMac’s screen is reportedly glued to the front glass for improved clarity. The 21.5-inch iMac is expected to get the new design first, with the 27-inch iMac following some time later.
