Re: Have I made a mistake ordering my first iMac?

No. It is not likely that the new models when they appear will provide a large improvement. I have used Mac Pros for years and upgrade when I can get a factor of two or more in speed in Photoshop processing. I recently upgraded after about five years. Most of the improvement had to do with full 64 bit processing and a factor of two increase in memory and bus speeds. The processors are better but only contributed a bit to the increase.

I'm not familiar with the iMac specs but if they already have a 1.33 GHz bus/memory and 2.5 to 3.3 GHz processor, then I would not expect any big improvements in the next releases.
The one exception may be in video boards but I don't know much about that.
