Apple iMac to Get Thunderbolt and Sandy Bridge Too Michael Kwan March 22, 2011 In related news, the sky is blue and ramen is incredible. This hardly comes out of left field, but it is noteworthy for any of the Apple fans in the audience. We already know that the recently updated MacBook Pros are getting in on some Sandy Bridge processor action, so it shouldn’t come as much of a surprise that the newer Intel chips are going to be planted into the largely notebook-based iMacs too. The other useful tidbit, which is also hardly unexpected, is that the new iMac all-in-ones will also be rocking that new Thunderbolt port (which we had previously known as Intel Light Peak). Aside from that, the new iMac should look aesthetically identical to the current version. They might have some different panel sizes, though. What does this mean? If you’re not bent on Sandy Bridge and Thunderbolt, you could stand to enjoy some decent savings when the new versions reportedly hit Apple Stores toward the end of April and beginning of May.
