New Mac minis and iMacs to retain same or very similar pricing to current models, Retina unlikely

Apple’s new Mac mini and iMac lines will feature price-points that are similar to those of their current models (depending on country). The three Mac mini models will likely be priced at the same $599, $799, and $999 for the two standard models and single server model, respectively.

The new iMacs will also feature similar or same pricing as the current iMacs, but the top 27-inch and 21.5-inch models may feature slightly cheaper pricing in some countries. The current iMacs come in at $1199, $1499, $1699, and $1999 U.S. price points.

With the iMac prices staying the same, or only changing slightly, we believe that it is unlikely that a Retina Display iMac will be introduced this fall. Our reasoning: The MacBook Pro 15-inch with Retina display is priced considerably higher than its non-Retina sibling, so it’s unlikely that Apple would be able to sell the much larger iMac display in Retina-form at the current non-Retina prices.
