A French site says that a speed bump is soon coming
The iMac hasn’t changed much since the last update that it received in 2012, although there have been minor updates that brought faster speeds. That trend will continue with the next upgrade which, while it won’t bring the long awaited Retina Display, it will boost the processor speed.
According to a French blog, a 21.5” 3GHz model is going to be coming for $1,499, while there will be a $1,799 model coming with a 27 inch monitor and a 3.3 GHz processor. Of course, these will also come with the ability to upgrade speed of processor and Turbo Boost when you configure the computer, but a basic upgrade like this is an important update for a company that has been seen as lacking in desktop computers.
This still leaves many wondering when the iMacs are going to see the update to include Retina Displays. These 5,120X2,880 pixel monitors have been hinted at for a while now, although we have yet to see them be made available.
While this will be a great upgrade for Apple and iMac fans, although it might not be the large upgrade that many people are waiting for. If you are in the market for a new model, this would be a great time to buy one, although it isn’t a huge update if you are looking for a truly powerful machine.
