Good to know: such in France, the apple store is down. That proves that's Apple is launching a worldwide new product (for example, it was not the case for the iPhone. There was no impact on the french apple website). New iMacs are coming...

Ok now everyone, make sure to take a whiz in the next 3 minutes because you won't want to leave your seats for 2 hours after that. (2:50)

Must be a worldwide update.

The thing is that the 15" MBP just isn't portable enough for me, it also doesn't fit on the tables of the trains I ride a lot. So it's not an option. A 13" MBP would perhaps be an option, but I doubt it would have much better cooling than the MB.

Since I work with music part time, I need a computer that's quiet even on heavy loads. It is really annoying to hear that tiny laptop fan cutting through the music all the time. The beauty of the iMac 24" is that it keeps pretty quiet even with CPU intensive tasks.
I just hope that doesn't change with the update.

Syncing data is surely a pain. But on the upside, it will force me to make backups pretty much every day. Another good thing about having two computers is that my computer is my income, and if I drop the MB or it gets stolen I'll have to replace it within the same day. But if I keep an iMac at the office with a fresh backup of the files I'm working on, I can just get over there and carry on working.

Can we watch the video live? If yes, where?

"iMacs have been very successful, and we'd like to make it even better," he said. Apple is borrowing two elements from its pro products for this new generation of iMac -- aluminum and silicon dioxide, better known as glass.

I doubt it... even the text only feeds are grinding to a halt... could only imagine what a site would be like if it had audio or dare I say video...

P.S. Thanks applemarc for providing event coverage... I can't get to any of them...

"So what would an iMac look like if we upgraded it and made it out of aluminum and glass?" Jobs ruminated. And then he displayed the new device.

The new iMac is thinner than before, and comes in two sizes: 20 and 24 inch. It features audio input and output, three USB 2.0 ports, FireWire 400 and 800, Gigabit Ethernet and video out. The slot-loading "SuperDrive" has been retained, along with a built-in iSight webcam and microphone.

The displays have a glossy sheen to them, which Jobs says Apple's customers have told them they love. He says the glossy display is better for displaying photos and movies.

To complement the sleek new aluminum design of the iMac, the system also has a new keyboard -- confirming rumors that first appeared about a week ago, the keyboard shares the same thin design. It also sports special dedicated keys -- dimmer, brighter, Exposé, Dashboard and media controls.

A new wireless keyboard and "Mighty Mouse" are also available. Both use Bluetooth 2.0.

Inside the iMac are Intel Core 2 Duo processors clocked from to 2.4GHz to 2.8 GHz in Configure To Order (CTO) offerings. They support up to 4GB of RAM, and feature ATI Radeon HD 2400XT graphics. They also feature hard disk drives up to 1 terabyte (TB) in capacity, and feature 802.11n wireless networking standard.

The new iMac is being offered in three basic configurations: An $1,199 model with 20-inch display, 2.0GHz processor, 250GB hard disk; a $1,499 model clocked at 2.4GHz with a 320GB drive for4 $1,499, and a 24-inch model for $1,799.

All models will be available starting today, said Jobs.

iLife 08!

The biggest jump since iLife was introduced!

ATI Radeon HD 2600 Pro video card? Hmm....I seriously hope there is another video option available.
post #550 of 557
Might I ask why? The 2600 is one ATI's best offerings. It's no 2900, but still.

A $100 video card is rarely a "good" thing, IMO. Do you know where we can find some reviews on it?

EDIT - "It's hard to recommend the Radeon HD 2600 Pro. The $100 price seems attractive, but it comes at a cost. To get good performance out of even year-old games, you'll need to start cranking detail levels down, even at the conservative resolution of 1280x1024. Forget about DX10 stuff: So far, it all runs like molasses."

NOT too encouraging.
post #553 of 557
.mac still seems a little light to me for $99. I dunno. I will probably run out and get iWork today and wait on iLife to get with Leopard.

Umm.. are you sure about that? Over at anand they were pretty unimpressed by the 2400 and 2600 series of gpus. They apparently aren't as good as the 8600 gpus from nvidia. I wonder why Apple didn't stick with the 8600 card from nvidia?
post #555 of 557
I must say I'm kinda disappointed.

The new iMac doesn't seem to satisfy my expecations. I believe that the aluminium doesn't go very well with the black glass.

Yeah, the presentation is over now ... Apple Store is sure gonna start soon.

I agree. If the only option is a 2600Pro, this is a bit of a downgrade from the previous generation with the 7600GT. It seems like the hardware inside is completely secondary to how it looks.

Just saw this at engadget's live coverage:
