Apple Store is down, new iMacs coming?

This morning the Apple Store has been taken offline for an anticipated update to the iMac line, which will introduce Intel's Sandy Bridge Core CPU family to the iMac line after the update to the MacBook Pro line earlier this spring, and a move to Thunderbolt external data ports. Apple Insider also suggested iMacs were due for a new AMD Radeon 6000-series graphics chip.

9TO5Mac is reporting the new specs as followed:

So just one 21.5-inch iMac now, which starts with a Quad-Core Sandy Bridge processor and 4GB of RAM and 1TB hard drive.

The 27-inch iMacs come in three varieties starting with a 2.7GHz Quad core and going up to a 3.4GHZ Quad-Core. All three have 4GB of RAM (starting at) and 1TB hard drives.

More to follow.
