Responding to widespread rumors on the Internet, Apple officials now confirm that the company will host a media event on Tuesday, Aug. 7 at the company's Cupertino, Calif. headquarters.
Sources confirm to CNBC that Apple will unveil a redesigned Macintosh computer, the first major redesign of the company's flagship personal computer in two years.
Apple confirms that the event will be Mac-only, and that no news is expected on the iPod or iPhone.
The revamped iMac may also include updated iLife and iWork software as well, to help the software programs work more effectively with the company's latest version of the Mac operating system.
Apple would not say whether Steve Jobs himself will be making the product announcements; only that the event would be hosted by "Apple executives."
The event is scheduled to begin at 10am PT.
