Apple iMac: new models out 3 May?

Shipping delays point to release of beefed-up desktop

New machines set to get Sandy Bridge processors and Thunderbolt connectivity.

The new Apple iMac could be on shelves as soon as Tuesday 3 May. That’s because Apple is stopping the shipping of current models to stores this week, according to an inside source speaking with 9to5Mac.

This has been backed up by anecdotal evidence from users looking to buy an iMac now, only to find shipping has been delayed until after 2 May. With Apple a fan of unleashing new kit on Tuesdays, it’s not too much of a leap to suggest we’ll see the new machines on 3 May.

The new iMac is expected to come with Intel’s new Sandy Bridge processors and Thunderbolt I/O, following in the footsteps of the recently updated MacBook pro range.
