Apple is getting ready to launch new iMacs, according to a new report.
Fox News' Clayton Morris is reporting today, citing several sources, that Apple will soon update its iMac line. According to Morris, the computers will come with Intel's Ivy Bridge processors, as well as better graphics and USB 3.0.
Apple's iMacs have been in desperate need of a refresh for some time. The all-in-one computers, which were last updated in May 2011, come in the customer's choice of 21.5- and 27-inch models. The iMacs currently offer quad-core Intel Core i5 processors.
The word from Morris' sources that the iMacs will launch with Ivy Bridge follows. A benchmark test was found on the site for an iMac 13,2, a new model that has yet to be released. It was believed at the time that the iMac was a new 27-inch model.
Although we're still in rumor territory, some signs do tend to point to a 27-inch model launching soon. CNET examined Amazon's iMac listing, and found that while the 21-inch model is available for purchase, the 27-inch version is "temporarily out of stock." Apple's online store, however, is showing the 27-inch model as in-stock.
CNET has contacted Apple for comment on the Fox News report. We will update this story when we have more information.
