Apple brings you the iPad mini, 4th gen iPad, new iMac, 13-inch MBP with Retina Display and more
Big news from the boys at Apple today. All kinds of new goodness from Cupertino! Another new iPad (Didn't we just get one of these?), A new iMac, A new MacBook Pro, and of course the new iPad Mini!
Am I the only one who is underwhelmed by the iPad Mini? I don't know. I guess it's because I already have a Nexus 7 (and am a self confessed Google-Whore) but quite frankly the iPad Mini leaves me thoroughly unimpressed. The new iMac however...damn sexy.
Apple teased that it had "a little more to show" us prior to today's San Francisco event, but it's clear now that the phrasing was humble at best. Not only has the much-anticipated, rumored and leaked 7.9-inch iPad mini been officially revealed, but so has a smattering of new and refreshed offerings across its range of gizmos. The standard iPad is seeing its fastest refresh yet (about six months) to a Lighting port and A6X-packing fourth-generation model, and the iMac has ditched its optical drive to go Air-thin in its Ivy Bridge-driven seventh-generation. Mobile power users should be especially be pleased, too, as a 13-inch variant of the MacBook Pro with a 2,560 x 1,600 Retina Display is now a reality. Lest we forgot that the iBooks app and iBooks Author have both been updated -- right on cue with that book-like iPad Mini. Hop past the break for a full listing of all the news and all of our on-scene coverage that came out of today's event.
