My 2010 iMac is about to get outdated.

I have owned a Core i7 27-inch iMac since last August and it is about to get old. The supply of the 2010 iMac is tightening across the globe according to 9to5Mac. This usually means Apple is getting ready to release a new version. The Apple iMac can use a renewal as Apple rolled out the latest Intel Sandy Bridge CPUs and the new high-speed Thunderbolt port already on MacBook Pro laptops. The 2011 iMac could come as early as this month.
It is unlikely that Apple will make changes to the iMac besides new CPUs and the Thunderbolt port.

As reported earlier the Apple computer that needs an update the most is the MacBook. The $999 white MacBook became unrecommendable because of the MacBook Air.

Apple is reporting its Q2 2011 Earnings today after the market closes. I no longer expect Apple to launch any new products this week. The white iPhone 4 could launch next week on April 26th. The new 2011 iMac release could therefore be earliest in the first week of May.

Update 05/03/11:
Apple Store is down new 2011 iMacs expected.
