Apple Insider has learned that Apple is going to unveil a new iMac lineup, perhaps as early as this month but it could take until mid-October. The new Apple iMac systems are expected to carry lower price tags and feature a new, sleeker design.
Aesthetic revisions aside, the late 2009 iMac line should also debut several features previously unavailable to Mac buyers.
People familiar with Apple's thinking have suggested in recent months one of these moves could see the company finally embrace Blu-ray -- a technology once derided by Chief Executive Steve Jobs as a "bag of hurt" from a licensing perspective.
With the costs of such drives remaining relatively high, it's reasonable to presume such capability would fetch an added premium on most models.
