The back-to-school season is always one of Apple's most important quarters of the year. Buzz is building that the company won't let the season pass by without a new iMac.
The latest report, courtesy of Think Secret, claims that Apple has nailed down August 7 as the release date for new iMacs. It's probably about time; Apple hasn't released a new iMac in quite some time, and Intel released new chipsets in June.
Think Secret is also claiming that an updated version of Apple's iLife suite of multimedia software could arrive around the same time. Apple hasn't released an update to the suite--which includes iPhoto, iDVD, and Garage Band--this year, but that could be blamed in part on the delayed release of Leopard.
