That 5K cinema display sounds great especially if it has built in graphics. If that's true, it's probably going to be an expensive display. :$

My Acer laptop is getting disfunctional. I consider getting a new model of another brand. That is why I'm interested in seeing what the new Macbook can offer.

The rMBP is definitely coming and I have "confirmation" about the OLED bar, so that'll be interesting to see how that plays with applications and if it will indeed do what people think it will do within applications.

I am hoping for a new MacBook Air. I am using a 2013 version now but I could use a new machine.

Prevailing rumors are MBA and MBP. The 11" MBA might get retired. There is also thought that the MBA might be completely let go next year in lieu of the new Macbook that was introduced since they are competing for the same customers.

The iMac and any display refreshes are delayed until early next year. So this event is just for the Notebooks..

Hey Ashwin...

That's a good thing for me. At the end of the year I have to pay my property taxes, home owners insurance, and auto insurance. And of course the money spent on Xmas presents, etc. In other words, I'm usually broke by then. LOL. So next Spring sounds good. ;)

I was hearing/seeing the same thing. Little chance of new iMac's this time around.

I am sure many won't care, but I still think it was unwise to ditch the MagSafe power jack.

Well, Apple has managed not only to totally underwhelm, but deliver another badly hobbled product that isn't fit for purpose. It's like they're trying to push switchers back to Windows. <sigh>

Microsoft is waiting for them with their new Surface book! :D Grin

Microsoft just had their event also.

I know. I just find everything Apple releases to be so frustrating anymore. I used to be excited. Now, I'm just looking for what stupid answer to a question no one ever asked, will be their next "big thing".

The Surface book is interesting and might be great for some but it's very much like new Macs with no upgradeable anything, so same boat. Soon you will have to buy a heavy gaming laptop to get a machine you can work with!

Cult of Mac is showing prices $200 and more over the same basic machine last year.

Like Chris, I am totally underwhelmed by today's offerings. And I find the prices for the 13" machines are high even for Apple. What the heck is Apple thinking? I can hardly wait to see what "new innovation" ($$$) Apple is going to give us with a new iMac and retina display next year. :Grimmace:

Not smart Tim. Sales (and profits) dipping Q3 and everything dearer and no updated iMac. Confirms iDevices are much more important to Apple than computers nowadays.

The pundits of Wall Street agree with you Harry. Apple is going to wind up selling more iPhones this year than ever. And with Samsung shooting themselves in the foot with their exploding phones, Apple is raking it in. Although their profits are down from last year. Go figure?

I read the coverage on the Apple Event on Anandtech. So many upset people there taking pot shots!


Well I have one :D Grin

They took off the Lighted apple from the lid! Sacrilege! :D Grin

But on a more serious note, I will miss that lighted apple. It makes Macs stand out at Starbucks! :D

Sorry, that truly BUGS me to no end. Tim Cook, what is your problem? Did they also take out Command+Alt+P+R also? I am concerned.

What that article doesn't explain is that the new MBP will power-on when the lid is opened if it was previously powered off. If it was just put to sleep it will just wake up like it traditionally has done. So with this new change, having the chime come on was likely deemed annoying, so it's a quiet boot up.

The lack of the chime is no biggie for me..

How do you hear the sound when you reset the PRAM?
