Hi, I was considering about when I should buy an iMac. Will there become a late-2011 iMac or will there be an new iMac in may 2012? And is the update a huge update? Like a design update and a CPU and GPU update?
If i should buy a mac right now i should buy an 27" iMac with a Intel Core i7 3.4 Ghz Quad-Core processor and AMD Radeon HD 6970M with 2 GB GDDR5 and 16GB of DDR3-1333 RAM Price: arround 2200 euro (3000 USD)
What should i do? (Sorry for my English)

There will "probably" be a CPU and GPU update next year. However, May is a long time away, you might want to just get it if you need the computer, if you don't need it then don't get it.

Right now i have an iPhone 4 and an iPad 2 and a PC from 2009 (specs below) I don't really need an hardware upgrade, because all things i want to do i can do on my old system. But the fact is that I like the products of Apple, i want to try more then only iOS.
I can't get my eyes of the iMac 27" because it looks nice, it has a nice big display, the mouse and keyboard are wireless and are beautiful, the specs are better than my current PC, it can run Windows as wel, it saves space on my desktop and of course I really want to get my hands on Mac OS X.
So it isn't like I need a new computer because the old one is slow or outdated. But I really want an iMac just because of all listed above.
Current specs (PC) :
AMD Phenom X4 955 3.2 Ghz Quad-Core
4GB RAM DDR2-800
XFX Radeon HD5770 1GB GDDR5
640GB Western Digital HDD 5400 RPM
Acer 24" Full-HD 1080p Display
