It looks like Apple may be dropping Dual and Quad Core CPUs into its new line up of iMacs.
According to a short article over at CNet Apple has decided to break the iMac line up into two tiers. The high end tier (which would probably include the 24" iMac) would have a quad-core nestled inside, while the low-end would be run by a dual core.
This move removes the need to choose one or the other and opens up options for a wider range of consumers. It is a pretty smart move on Apple's part if they follow through with it.
The move is not confirmed yet but Apple does need something new as Desktop sales have dropped alarmingly over the last quarter.
