The sources pointed out that the new 21-inch iMac only has a limited change in industrial design, but is upgraded with better hardware specifications, especially the Ultra HD display. Currently, Apple is able to ship about four million iMacs each year, about the same as Lenovo, but iMacs have a much higher ASP. Apple's lowest-end iMac is priced starting at US$1,099, while Lenovo's high-end all-in-one PCs start at the same price point. Lenovo's mid-range and entry-level models are priced starting US$599.99 and US$399,99, respectively.
We've see various reports predicting that a 4K iMac may be in the works. Recently, references spotted in OS X El Capitan Beta 6 hinted at the new device. KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo also pegged a new iMac for release in 3Q15.
