Redesigned 21-inch iMac with updated screen, 13-inch retina MBP spotted in China

MacRumors points to a forum thread [Google translation] this morning that purports to show details of a new iMac. The poster’s brother-in-law apparently works in the factory that builds the new Macs, and he snapped the above picture on his cell phone. The design was verified by iFixit to be similar to the internals of a current iMac with the plastic radio-transparent circle on the rear.

On the iMac, the poster says:

  • It should be announced this month or next month (likely at the Oct. 23th announement)
  • The design is of”epoch-making significance”
  • From side to side you “almost cannot see the new iMac’s thickness” and it is compared to a drop of water and “tetragonal” elements. Still has iMac ‘chin’ below display
  • It appears that the display is a “very pretty special glass glued directly” (perhaps like Retina MBP) to the machine rather than a separate display assembly
  • The 21-inch might be ready before the 27-inch
