I'm glad things are staying the way they are for now. When I heard Intel used cheap adhesive on the desktop IB processors instead of fluxless solder, I was a bit annoyed. I wonder how Apple dealt with it for the iMacs.
You cannot begin to believe how psyched I am for this and I may not even buy anything though I am just psyched for the update itself.
After that, the countdown begins for Haswell and the 2013 Mac mini of which I am equally if not more psyched.
Apple releasing products makes me feel like a kid on Christmas.
What would you guys prefer at the conference? A silent update or a good sized portion of the conference to announce the specs? Do people care as much about it as the iPad mini, iMac, and 13" retina?
I would like them to though I think it's going to take a major overhaul that Apple doesn't feel is necessary for the MM.
I'm a big proponent of buying American though Steve Jobs was right, some jobs probably are not going to come back at this point. I can't say forever, though for the forseeable future.
Lately I have been trying to buy whatever I can American though mostly clothes and soon housewares.
I would love for my Mac mini to be made by American workers from aluminum in America (or whatever raw materials are used) though also Intel, Samsung, Hynix, nVidia, and AMD might not have...
Ever since I bought a Mac mini, I am no longer interested in laptops. While the rMBP is awesome, I far prefer my separation of monitors and computers themselves.
Make or break on this one will be video memory on the discrete model. Otherwise I am fine with the Sandy Bridge model and Samsung 470. I might get a cheap gaming PC but I'm not sure.
I like the size of the Mac mini now though if it gave me more juice, I could take something a bit larger. Having said that, I think I might be able to deal with a mid-range IB mini coming up.
I like the iMac but the AIO is still tough on me despite it offering far more.
Edit: What's wrong with having a celebrity endorse the Mac mini?
Someone who says it's everything you want in one little package and starts at just $599 and already works with the parts you have.
