Analysts are often first out of the gate with wild Apple predictions. But today’s chatter about a new iMac and MacBook could just make sense. See, Wedge Partners reckon Steve Jobs is lining up an announcement and cheaper models to blow Windows 7 out of the water.
A new iMac would pack a whole new design, departing from the classy current finish which was first touted in summer 2007. Wedge Partners believe it’ll rock a “thinner, organic design, likely with smooth or rounded edges.”
