The Mac Observer Spin: Perhaps Apple is gearing up for a new design, or is this just a new manufacturing contract? These contracts can change often, but it is interesting to see Apple add to its iMac manufacturing when they are reportedly seeing sales slow down. In any event, it would seem that Apple sees iMac sales picking up in the near future.
