As expected Apple has taken down the Apple Store for maintenance. It is widely expected that Apple will release new iMaccomputers today. The new 2011 iMac would feature the new Intel Sandy Bridge CPUs and the fast Thunderbolt port. Apple could surprise us with some new storage options and screen sizes. I at least hope Apple can get SDD prices down and at the same time offer larger SSD storage options.
There is some evidence according to 9to5Mac that iWork will get an update today as well.
As soon as the Apple Store goes online again we will update you on the new Apple releases. It bums me out a bit that my 2010 iMac is about to get outdated. On the other hand I am still very pleased with it. It is fast as hell as long as Firefox 4.0.1 is not eating up all CPU. One last tip, if you are planning on buying an iMac, make sure you get SSD. SSD is the key to responsive computing.
9to5Mac received a tip from so called Mr. X with the four new 2011 iMac models. There will be a 21.5-inch iMac with a 2.7Ghz Quad-Core CPU, 4GB RAM and 1TBHDD (MC812LL/A). You will be able to choose between three 27-inch iMacs with CPU choices of 2.7Ghz, 3.1Ghz and 3.4Ghz Quad-Cores (MC813LL/A, MC814LL/A and MD063/LL/A)

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
