Apple shuts online Apple Store

iMac refresh imminent?

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Apple's online store is currently down awaiting an update which, it's widely believed, will centre on new iMacs based on Intel's second-generation Core i processor platform, aka Sandy Bridge.

Rumours to that effect hit the net last week, but with Sandy Bridge-based MacBook Pro notebooks out since March - check out our reviews of the 13in and 15in models - it takes no great leap of the imagination to forecast Sandy Bridge iMacs.

Apple's all-on-one desktops are, after all, largely based on laptop tech.

iMacs have become harder to find of late, which points to a refresh, and a Mac Rumours source last week said Apple's shops will gain new promo materials today - just what you'd expect to accompany such a major roll-out.

Will bring you more details when we get them. ®
