4 Reasons Not To Wait for the 2020 iMac & 5 Reasons You Should



Wait for a 2020 iMac with a Better Display

Wait for a 2020 iMac with a Better Display

We're hopeful that Apple will add a better default display for the 2020 iMac. The majority of the iMac displays are 4K and 5K, but the $1,099 iMac model features a 1080P display. 

There is a chance that this model gets upgraded to 4K, but that may require a better GPU and it could interfere with the pricing. 

Across the board, there is some hope that we will see a True Tone display, but we don't have any concrete rumors. 

If you are hoping for a bigger display, you should hold out and see what Apple does, but keep in mind any mind-blowing upgrades will likely arrive on the iMac Pro first.

    I think Apple has forgotten it has an iMac, focusing way too much of the overpriced useless watch and yet another disposable phone. The year is almost spent and still no sign of an upgrade to the iMac. It’s been a sad year for iMac fans

      I agree. Someone making a similar observation post-October 30th added that they felt that there was a chance that one would be introduced this month by way of a press release a la the one they did earlier this year for the MBPs.

    Disappointed. How can we justify to buy this expensive model that has seventh-generation processor? Time to start looking for alternatives such as Windows XPS.

      Ofc., this is always the case with Apple: they cut corners and use THE cheapest (old) components they can get their hands on – and then wrap it up with a pretty, golden, bow – maybe throw-in something extra to make it SEEM premium, or something; and people fall for it, LOL: hook, line and s(T)inker. xD

      OMG., sorry, I don’t mean to spam – but, this is Comedy Central! Not just the CPUs (and whatever), the article also mentions: “upgrades include potential support for DDR4 RAM”.
      Imagine, a “potential” upgrade of what has been -simply- standard on all other machines, for a couple of years now. They’re so bad, it’s just hilarious to me, heh! xD

    Am outdone with Windows 10 and was very eager for an iMac in the Spring of 2018. Ongoing delays and mysteries surrounding the new iMac have left me discouraged, and re-thinking whether I really need a new toy. All my work is PC-based, so may get a high-res HP laptop instead.

    The next iMac will offer up to at least six cores, like the Mac mini does now.

    I appears to me that Apple has, for all practical purposes, abandoned the iMac customer. We will soon be going into two years since any upgrade was provided. Apple may be playing coy and keeping wraps on a great early 2019 iMac “next generation”. I certainly hope so. But my guess is probably not. I sense we will see some very minor additions but little else. 6 cores? Faster graphics cards? 12GB video RAM? I doubt we will see anything like these improvements. The evidence of this is that no improvements have been forthcoming for almost two yeas. iMac users have tired of waiting and some are looking elsewhere for better machines. Had there been a computer company ready and waiting to seize the day, much of iMac’s share of the market may have been taken from Apple. As it is, I hope for a fabulous 6 core next generation machine but expect little given a long delay that seems to signal Apples warning interest in the iMac.

    Apple would be making a huge,dumb mistake if it adopts an OLED based display for its 2019 iMac. I have an OLED display on my Note 8. It has major screen burn in after a couple months. Screen burn in is not a deal killer on a smart phone. On a visual display for professional photo editing it will be. Apple will be widely panned if it slips and adopts OLED burn in for its 2019 iMac. If they do, Tim Cook should be caned and fired.

      Yeah, I don’t -really- think that “widely panned” would (actually) mean anything to Apple customers, hehe.

      It used to be a problem, when Apple were able to monopolize a great software… Like, Logic Audio for example (when they’d made it exclusive, after an expensive purchase – in order to hustle and force people into buying their computers. ;))

      These days, there are -so- many specialized programs and it’s no longer an issue: no real reason to purchase their over-priced and underpowered devices.

    Got to wait, for sure. Apple has a (long) history of selling “optimized” underpowered hardware, so the year-old is pretty much guaranteed to turn into a complete bucket; even IF they don’t decide to slow it down, on purpose, when it’s time for new releases. Meh.
