blk imacEveryone’s getting in on the ‘news‘ that Apple will supposedly be refreshing their entire line-up of Macs in this next quarter. That’s an awful tall order of things to come. But sounds interesting enough. I’m especially down with the talk of a black iMac being released. Oh, and will they be dropping the “i” from iMac?

Anyhow, add another notch to the rumor boards…

  1. Dark looks sharp – but doesn’t cost more $. Look on amazon at the black and white ipods (and guess which ones sell better). I am not buying till they come out in black.

  2. I completly agree with jsutevan. I actually spent extra specifically for black on my macbook and my ipod. black is cool.
    And was that the actual Seven Jobs on comment #1 ?!?

  3. White or silver is fine, smaller pupil size = best visual acuity; dark room, large pupil size = more refraction and perceived fuzziness…

    Keep it the same and add iSight to the Cinema displays.

    Black would be a good addition with an anodized stand. But what would be really great, would be a 27 or 30-inch screen with less of a “chin.” All that with a 2.4Ghz Core 2 Duo and space for 4GB of RAM, and bigger speakers… Nice.

  5. I saw a white and a black MacBook side by side the other day. I assume the screen are exactly the same, but it was amazing to me how much sharper the image was on the black MacBook.

    I’d buy one in an instant, assuming I had the money. What I want is to watch movies on my Mac while lying in bed. A white edge around a movie is too distracting. Anyone remember Sylvania TVs from the ’50’s? Yuck! I’ve never understood beige and white monitors – it makes no sense. Black iMac please!

  7. Black series rocks!

    I don’t think they will drop the “i”, Apple choose mostly to drop all the “Power” prefixe but maybe they will do the same as with the iBook.

    Besides, this mock-up image is from Collis Ta’eed.

    A detail: you can see its northxeast logo between the iMovie and Garageband logos in the Dock.

    Maybe you can ask him for the wallpaper ;)
