American tech journos are being called to Cupertino to an Apple Town Hall meeting next Tuesday morning for an Apple Mac-focused announcement.

The new iMac line-up has been talked up and expected for a while now, and it seems we won't have to wait long to find out what the range re-fresh will be.

Pictured is the ultra-thin metallic keyboard that is supposedly for the new iMac which apparently sets the style-tone for the new machines.

The new 20 and 24-inch models are said to be sleek and slimline but rumours have it that 17-inchers are not getting an update, or being dumped altogether.

Those folk present may also be treated to some demos of the much anticipated iLife '08 and iWork '08 software.
