New rumors are stoking anticipation that Apple will remake its desktop Macs. World of Apple is reporting Apple will announce new iMacs and others on March 24. MacRumors cites a Japanese blog that says the unveiling could be tomorrow.

Word of the overdue makeovers comes as Apple's share of worldwide PCs slipped to 9.61 percent. It was a slight drop of about a third of a percentage point in February over January, according to Net Applications. But it was the largest slip in a year in which the Mac has mostly gained market share and neared double digits.
