Im in the market for a new iMac, but would like to wait until apple upgrades the speeds and specs.

I know no one knows for sure, but how long is it expected before we see an upgrade

Thanks

Nobody knows. Could be a few months, could be longer.

But I personally don't expect it to be a big refresh as Apple seems kinda slow on the technology bandwagon.

And what do you need a faster cpu for? Are you doing really cpu intensive tasks?

I am a new poster here but i got my first Mac last year which i was very happy with, i also got a new MacBook Pro only yesterday so the perfomance of both machines impresses me i expected the MacBook Pro to be alot slower than the bigger iMAC really but it isnt and thats impressive!

If you're waiting for the next processor upgrade, that's probably QUITE a while off. They only just made the jump to i5/i7 and I wouldn't expect any big changes or tweaks to that for quite some time.

I would think the next major step would be towards the end of 2011 - the middle of 2012, after intel brings out the new sockets for their processors. This is all rumour of course, more info about it here: Rumour: New socket to replace LGA1366 due in 2011 | bit-tech.net

As others have said, could be a way off yet. My advice would be to get an iMac now (the best one you can afford at the moment) a 27inch i5/i7 if you can and as much ram as your funds permit.

I bought my present (aluminium) mac in 2007 (a 24inch 2.8ghz core 2 duo) and it still performs brilliantly today.
