iMac refresh appearing on Retail stock systems [Updated]

[Update: They've been announced!] Rumors began last week that Apple was prepping an iMac refresh, two months after rejuvenating the MacBook and MacBook Pro lines.  Now retailers are discretely reporting new model numbers appearing on their stock systems.  The assumption is still that Apple will officially release the new desktops tomorrow, and while screen size options are expected to stay the same that hasn't stopped some SlashGear readers dreaming:

Fujitsu LOOX R 12-inch ultraportable updated

Fujitsu LOOX R 12-inch ultraportable updated

When Fujitsu announced its LOOX R notebook last December it was the first model we'd seen with Intel's Penryn chipset. Of course, last year's laptops are old news now, and so the company has updated the range with an Intel Core 2 Duo SL7100 processor running at 1.2GHz. It still has a 12.1-inch LCD display, but Fujitsu have switched to LED backlighting for better clarity and improved battery life.

MacBook Pro with Penryn CPU & MultiTouch: is it worth an upgrade?

MacBook Pro with Penryn CPU & MultiTouch: is it worth an upgrade?

After three generations of MacBook Pro, Apple have had plenty of time to refine their flagship super-strength laptop. However, users have also had time to refine their expectations; with this latest update to Intel's 45nm Penryn CPU and a switch from CCFL to LED screen back-lighting (for the 17-inch; 15-inch has been using LED since last revision with Santa Rosa platform), the MacBook Pro is trying to be both powerful and efficient. SlashGear sat down with the 2.5GHz, 15-inch version - with 4GB DDR RAM and 512MB VRAM - and its 2.2GHz predecessor (Santa Rosa), to see both whether the changes are worth the upgrade for existing owners and, perhaps more importantly, whether the MacBook Pro keeps its position (arguably) at the top of the notebook pile.

iMacs getting processor upgrade too?

iMacs getting processor upgrade too?

So we all know that Apple hasn’t updated their precious MacBook Pro line in quite sometime, nor have they updated their MacBooks any time recently, so updates for both are likely on their way. The catch is, whatever processor/graphics/FSB the MacBook Pros are using/have usually gets passed on to the iMacs.

Fujitsu’s LOOX to Run on Mobile Penryn

Fujitsu’s LOOX to Run on Mobile Penryn

I hate my Macbook pro, it’s powerful alright but the battery is rather pathetic. I can’t finish one good night of blogging if I left the power adapter at work. The Santa Rosa didn’t improve much but i hope the upcoming Penryn will. I was psyched to read the Fujitsu’s LOOX R70 with mobile penryn has an optimized battery life up to 9.7 hours with stock battery. That’s right, Fujitsu unveils the first Penryn notebook today. It has a compact size of 12.1” screen and weight only 2.8lb. The new LOOX will equip with 1GB of memory and 120GB of storage space in Windows Vista Business and has the schedule to release in Japan next month.
