New iMacs

More detail has surfaced about the new iMacs due in September this year. Volker picked up on Apple’s surprising admission on their iMac page:

Apple has stopped taking orders for the current iMac as we begin the transition from the current iMac line to an all-new iMac line which will be announced and available in September. We planned to have our next generation iMac ready by the time the inventory of current iMacs runs out in the next few weeks, but our planning was obviously less than perfect. We apologize for any inconvenience to our customers.

… and now MacCentral reports on the proposed G5 iMacs:

(Apple CFO) Oppenheimer also confirmed that the new iMac coming this September will be based on a G5 processor. The delay in the new model’s release is (sic) supply problem involving the G5 processor itself…

Oooh! I wonder how much money I can save between now and September (my birth month no less!) Erm… OK, well maybe ten quid won’t quite cut it.
