The iMac 2017 may be hanging on a thin line as the features rumored for it still may not be enough to eliminate the competition. However, delays do not always spell something bad, as it prepares for being the best.

As some may know, the iMac 2017 has some rumored specs that could take it to the top, such as the Kaby Lake processor. Sadly, it may not soon surface as some would already wish it to, based on what transpired with the MacBook Pro 2016.

According to recent reports, the iMac 2017 is said to don the Kaby Lake processor which let many fans down after the MacBook Pro 2016 was rigged with the SkyLake chipset. Moreover, one possibility that is being considered is that Apple may still not ready to mass produce the iMac 2017. Technically, the competition is already looking weak for Apple, starting with the Microsoft Surface Studio.

As for the competition, the Microsoft Surface Studio already has confirmed the use of the Surface Pen, for one. The Surface Dial tool is another trait that holds an advantage, pushing the chances of Apple down at this point. Apple's sleek and slim design puts it on the race, as well as the speculated Retina 5K display that many have appraised.

For the time being, the iMac 2017 still does not have a certain release date, which could bring the attention of the fans to the existing MacBook Pro 2016. The said hardware has received some heat from the fans due to some features that were far from appealing if not inadequate, as well as the alleged iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. For now, the war on technological supremacy still somewhat favors the apparent opposition, but it will still be too early to rule out Apple.

Will the iMac 2017 delay be a good thing for the company entirely? Stay locked for more updates and news here at GamenGuide.
