Wedge Partners Claims Apple is Redesigning the iMac and MacBook ➝

Eric Savitz of Barron’s reports on a note from Wedge Parters predicting new iMacs and MacBooks “in the next several weeks.”

They say that the iMac will get a “thinner, organic design, likely with smoothed or rounded edges.”

Wedge also expects “new, lower price points.”

AppleInsider had published rumors in early August regarding iMacs with “compelling new features,” in late August saying that a MacBook redesign was in the works, and in late June claiming that we would see lower cost iMacs this fall.

It’s hard to say whether or not Wedge Partners has any information that we don’t already know. I believe AppleInsider has a credible sources but it is entirely possible that Wedge Partners is basing their assertion on AppleInsider’s reports.
