Apple overhauls iMac and updates the Mac Mini August 7, 2007Posted by Matsu in Apple, Information Technology, Mac, Technology.
By now you have probably heard about the new iMacs with a fresh new aluminum skin. I have been sitting on a very large (100K) order until I was certain that I could get the new computers and not the model that was selling yesterday. After all, who wants a computer lab full of computers that are discontinued? I don’t! Anyway, with a lot of communication and coordination with our Apple representative, it appears we will be receiving the new iMac computers for all of our new labs before the fall term begins.
If you haven’t read about all of today’s announcements, check out what MacWorld had to say. If Apple does what they have done in the past, then there should be a video recording available for viewing on Apple’s website sometime this evening.
But wait, that’s not all, there’s more. What didn’t get a lot of press was the new or upgraded Mac Mini computers. They have upgraded the processors to the newer Core 2 Duo from Intel. The new models come bundled with the newly announced and shipping iLife 08, but that’s not a surprise.
Overall, today was a good day. It pretty much went as I had hoped, with the products getting upgraded that I needed (iMac and iLife). Now, if we can just get Apple to ship the new 10.5 (Tiger) operating system, life would really be good.
