• New iMacs, MacBooks coming?

    Eric Savitz, at the Tech Trader Daily blog at Barron's Online, reports that Wedge Partners, an "independent equity analysis firm with a focus on the technology and media industries," is claiming that Apple is weeks away from an announcement of redesigned iMacs and minor changes to the Mac Book line.

    According to Barron's, Wedge Partners
    ... assert in a note today that the company will release both new iMacs and new MacBooks “in the next several weeks.”

    Wedge sees a redesigned iMac with a “thinner, organic design, likely with smoothed or rounded edges. The MacBook redesign “is likely to be limited,” Wedge asserts.
    Price cuts are also expected ahead of the Windows 7 release and busy holiday season. While the rumor mill churns wildly, especially late in the year and has been dead wrong more often than right, a report from a financial observer should carry a little more weight than the standard fanboi fantasy. These people get paid - a lot - to get it right.

    AppleInsider notes the Barron's report and reviews last month's vague but interesting rumors about new audio/video authoring capabilities on the iMac and a feature that has supposedly "long been on the wish-lists of many Mac users."

    I'll be accepting guesses on just what that might be in comments. What's been long on your list?
