Apple updated the iMac line on Monday April 28, 2008. We have created a Quick Comparison Chart to highlight the upgrades when compared to the prior models released in August 2007.
As its been rumored, Apple released updates to the iMac line today. The new iMacs have faster processors that bring the low end model up to 2.4GHz and the high end model up to 3.06GHz. The the top of the line 24" iMac ships with the NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GS (512MB) video card.
Expect to see more iPhone and iPod users at your local Starbucks in the very near future. AT&T Inc. and Starbucks today announced the beginning of the rollout of AT&T Wi-Fi(SM) service at company-operated Starbucks stores, kicking off a nationwide effort that will continue through 2008.
We published a report earlier today that sheds light on a rumor that Apple may release new iMac models next week. To understand why it makes sense, we need to look at Apple's current fiscal quarter.

A story published today at geeksugar highlights information from their sources who indicate that Apple will release new iMac models next week. According to the report, the new iMacs will sport speed increases and larger hard drives.
We don't usually publish rumors but when a classmate in my MBA program (who happens to have connections with several Apple reps) passed on an interesting tidbit of iPhone speculation this past weekend, I felt that it warranted publication. He indicated that Apple will be announcing the 3G iPhone sometime in May and then a new product at WWDC 2008.
Apple has slashed prices on certified MacBook, MacBook Pro, and iMacs models. All Macs purchased from the Apple Outlet come free shipping and Apple's 1 year warranty. Note that inventory is limited so items are removed from the outlet once they sell out. Save up to $400 depending on the model.
Things that make you go hmmm. Mac users are quick to argue that Macs are not subject to virus infection.

Is Apple endorsing antivirus software for the Mac?
