    Default Release date of new iMacs?

    My 27" iMac (mid-2010) is now out of commission, so I'm in the market for getting a new iMac. Has anyone heard if and when the new iMac models may be coming out? I've read Q4 2016 on some rumored postings, but I'd like to know so I can plan whether to get the 2015 version or wait for a 2016 release. I know that in Oct 2015 Apple released the newer iMacs, so I'm wondering if they will do the same a year later for this month (Oct).

    Thanks.

    All we have are rumors, and the latest rumor I read about states later this month.

    From Intel's roadmap I'd guess spring of 2017, early summer at the latest. But with Macs you never know…

    I don't think Apple will have a separate event for iMacs. This year they focused on MacBook Pro lineup. So maybe next year they will have a event for iMac, Mini and iPad. Least can happen is they might slightly updgrade the CPU and GPU.

    I think it's quite clear that they don't want to give the Mac some event-time if it's just a small update – new processors, slightly better displays etc. are to "boring" and "not innovative" enough (that's not how I think, but that'd be how it's seen by many) for them to spend stage time on.
    However, redesigns of important products are always shown at a keynote – so maybe we'll get another part-time-Mac-event in the spring (with new iPads e.g.) with a MacBook-ization of the iMac's design (plus Thunderbolt 3 etc.)…

    I believe all 27" iMacs come with a dedicated GPU.
