Ever since the introduction of the aluminium unibody iMac line in 2009, Apple’s all-in-one personal computers have remained the same externally. Nevertheless, the series had received annual refreshes with faster processors and graphics units, with the most recent mid-2011 iMacs also receiving Thunderbolt ports.
Well recent rumors suggest that the 2012 iMacs will receive a redesign as well, making them slimmer and lighter than the current models. AppleInsider is claiming that the new iMacs
will more closely resemble the footprint of today’s most popular LED televisions.
Now DigiTimes, a Taiwanese publication, is also claiming that the redesigned Apple iMac computers will feature anti-reflective glass displays. G-Tech is said to be ramping up its production capacity of the anti-reflective cover glass for the new displays, which is great news for glare-hatting iMac fans.
If the rumor does pan out to be true, this will be the first time Apple will be selling a desktop with an anti-reflective screen that so far has only been available for built-to-order MacBook laptops.
Again according to the rumors, the refreshed iMac line should be introduced in the second half of year.
