First benchs of iMac Core i5 are available at macnn (and Apple stock is now above 200$). As explained before, Apple should add an entry-level MacPro to prevent pro users from looking towards the new iMac (the Core i7 is even faster, up to 25% more powerful than the Core i5, notably thanks to Hyperthreading).
Moreover the MacPro aren’t really expandable : very limited (and expensive) graphics card upgrades (leads to flash PC cards, however mac frmwares were used to be of different size), no processor upgrades. Finally the new imacs are said to remain very quiet.
