Slimmer Design, Anti-Reflective Displays For 2012 iMacs

When whispers start flying around Apple's most anticipated products, the stars of the rumours are usually iPhones and iPads.

Only this time, tech websites are buzzing around iMacs and the possibility that Apple could be giving them a sleeker new look. According to Digi Times, Apple is planning to redesign the entire iMac family sometime this year.

The Taiwanese website points out that the most likely supplier for the new displays is G-Tech which is already an Apple partner, supplying cover glass panels for iPads.

Digi Times suggests (opens in new tab) that the monthly orders from Cupertino will increase from 1.8 million units to 3 million, in order to ensure sufficient iPad stock.

However, there's more. "G-Tech is also expected to supply AR (anti-reflective) glass solutions for Apple's all-in-one (AIO) PCs with the new products to also serve as a growth driver for G-Tech, indicated industry sources," writes Digi Times, quoting anonymous industry sources.

Apple Insider takes the story a little further and investigates Apple's rumours on this topic. Apparently, Apple is in full development process of two "strikingly slimmer and lighter models" of the iMac. The new design seems to be similar to the high end LED TV sets.
