APPLE REFRESHES THE ENTIRE FLEET



Apple had a pretty big day yesterday.

They announced a couple of new products yesterday that certainly caught my fancy. The new super slimmer, faster version has an edge that's just 5mm thin. It also has Apple’s new "fusion drive," a combination of a flash drive and a hard will have up to three terabytes of storage. With either a quad-core i5 or i7 Intel processor and NVIDIA Kepler graphics, the new iMac is a serious desktop. They have also reworked the LCD screen making for the most spectacular video yet!

The other biggie was the unveiling of the iPad Mini. It has a 7.9-inch screen and weighs just 0.68 lb, and is 7.2mm thick. Apple says the Mini was built from the ground up and is not just a shrunken iPad. Whatever, I see it being the must buys gadget this Christmas season.

Other announcements included a 13-inch iteration of the MacBook Pro with Retina Display that is a pound lighter and 20% thinner. They also released an update of the Mac Mini

O yea, the announced the 4th generation iPad.

It looks much like the third generation, but it has a lot more guts. The new iPad has an A6X processor, which they says will double the CPU power and double the graphics power. Another change, it has a lightning dock connector at the centre of the bottom, instead of the old 30-pin dock connector.

Once again, I find myself behind the apple curve.

Must fight the urge to update......
