  • Any reliable info on when Apple might release a new iMac?

No, but it's reasonable to assume "before the end of the year". I'm thinking that because they missed "at the same time as the MacBooks" and "the start of the school year", maybe the timing is now "before Black Friday".

  • Aside from the size difference, is there any performance difference in the screen/IQ?

I think the 27" models are a bit faster, but the 21.5" models are closer than they used to be. Also, the 27" models have a second Thunderbolt port.

Thanks. Faster as in the screen refresh rate?

I need one very soon. Wondering if differences will be substantial. Loving the one I have. Maybe there's not enough good reason to wait?

It is sure to have USB 3 and faster processors, likely a thinner case, likely no more optical drive and maybe a higher resolution display.
