I am afraid so.
Is there any evidence to support this possibility?
No. Just people think that when the 23" price comes down enough, Apple would consider releasing a 23" iMac. But it has to happen to some point if Apple wish to have a consumer desktop capable to decode (it can now thanks to Core Duo) and display (it can't now since the resolution is lower) appropriately 1080p video.
Sorry but I will soon be purchasing my first mac in late September/early October and I can't frickin wait. I am really just hoping for a speed bump (minor one, I know) and similar design with some other nice upgrades.
This is the most probable to happen in the coming months.
Anybody think there is a chance for a larger standard hard drive? I think probably not as 250gigs is quite large already.
A larger HD I think will come in the update after this one, that is next year. But you never know with Apple. The iMac is their consumer flagship desktop, so there is a light chance to increase HD capacity sooner than later.
