Ladies and gentlemen, introducing "the most beautiful Mac" Apple has ever made! At the San Jose media event, the folks in Cupertino have announced the company's latest iMac, which is impossibly thin and "stunning from every side."
If you're reading this site, or if you're just a tech enthusiast, you're well aware of one thing: Apple is terrible at keeping a secret. Honestly, the company keeps things under wraps with all the tact of a junior-high schooler. But according to some Apple employees, the supply chain holds every bit of the blame.
Now that Apple has sent out its official invites for an October 23 event, we're fairly confident the iPad Mini is on its way. But Cupertino isn't likely to leave the stage without a few other announcements, and according to sources, new iMac units are on the menu.
We love showing off all the great refurbed Macs out there because we think maybe people don't realize the incredible bargains on machines that are in tip-top form. A big knock in consumer circles is that Apple products are expensive, but they're killer products and here we've got some of them at killer prices. So if brand-new looks like it's several months more of ramen dinners away, look on the discount side of things. You won't be disappointed.

According to Appleinsider, Apple may be planning on nixing an optical drive in its next round of updates for the iMac and Mac Pro. Apple has clearly been heading towards a cross platform rule of no optical drive inclusion, with the MacBook Air, Apple TV, and MacBook Pro with Retina as the pioneer devices to lack the dying disc reader.
When reviewing internal configuration data in Apple's new OS, Mountain Lion, files made reference to unreleased iMac's and Mac Pro's, possibly not containing an optical drive. Boot Camp Assistant holds internally a configuration list file that names by initial and its Apple designated architectural version ID, the Mac models that are able to support a boot disc or a USB flash drive that can install windows to a Boot Camp partition.
If you've seen the pics of the purported next-generation iPhone built from allegedly leaked parts, you probably noticed it looks a whole lot like the iPhone 4/4S.
