Apple iMacs get refresh, Ivy Bridge CPUs

Due in June.

Apple is set to update its line of iMacs in either June or July, adding next-gen Ivy Bridge CPUs from Intel to its signature all-in-one computers.

That's according to How To Arena (via AppleInsider), which claims a reliable tipster in the Chinese supply chain has revealed the new iMac will arrive packing Core i5 and Core i7 processors. Intel is expected to take the wraps off its Ivy Bridge processors later this month.

Apple's also reportedly decided that, upon reflection, a bit of extra gloss is a bad thing – Cupertino has placed orders from supplier G-Tech for anti-reflective glass expected to be included on the new line of iMacs, according to Digitimes. That would fix a perennial complaint of iMac users – that while a reflective screen may look lovely, it's a nightmare to use in direct sunlight.
