iMac lineup to get a spec bump; no Retina model in sight

According to a new MacG report, Apple is planning to bump the specs of its iMac lineup of desktop all-in-one computers next week.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t appear these will be the Retina iMacs that have appeared in recent OS X beta builds. Instead, it seems they’re only due for a slight processor speed increase, with each model gaining only a 100 MHz.

The report also speculates that the new models could include a new and rather improved Thunderbolt 2 connection, but this isn’t confirmed at this time. MacG accurately predicted the most recent MacBook Air refresh, so it’s a safe bet that these iMacs are coming next week.


A slight spec bump is probably not what users are looking for most in an updated iMac, and while we know Apple is working on Retina models, it doesn’t seem like they’ll be hitting the market any time soon.

On the upside, MacG also notes that there’s a possibility of a price decrease with this refresh.
