With the MacBook Pro line getting spec bumps to Sandy Bridge processors and Thunderbolt, Apple’s iMac should fall in line in about 4-6 weeks according to Brian Tong from CNET. On Twitter, Brian noted that iMac’s were en route for a late April refresh.
EXCLUSIVE: My Sources: New iMacs en route by ocean to U.S. available end of April or 1st week of May. No major cosmetic changes.
My sources say New iMacs will feature Sandy Bridge and Thunderbolt. No other specifics.
The iMac shouldn’t receive any aesthetic changes in this early 2011 update. CNET has also postulated that the MacBook Air would receive an update to Sandy Bridge in June, replacing the much outdated Core 2 Duo processor in the mobile lineup.
