Apple is being reported as likely to unveil new iMacs next week.

A wave of reports have appeared this morning that make such claims, all based on an individual story on the Geek Sugar website, itself based on an unnamed source.

The report further explains that the iMacs will receive a processor speed increase (and Penryn chip) alongside larger hard drives, though the August 2007-introduced aluminium design will not be changed, with prices remaining at the same points as before.

That Apple is plotting to introduce new models of its all-in-one desktop Mac isn't unexpected, with reports that stock in hand of the existing configurations is dwindling emanating earlier this month. These reports lend the current spate of rumours a little added weight.

The Mac mini may also see an upgrade, some reports claim.
