Macworld Apple 2008 KEYNOTE transcript LEAKED

in General Discussion edited January 2014
Perhaps I should have titled it differently.

Mods, please delete other thread :- still NO sub $1000 machine with decent graphics.

First post - love Apple. Saw this, found it interesting.

Not sure how much is true.

(SNIP) - begin copy

As everybody?s favorite keynote of the year approaches, more and more rumors about the great iProducts to come begin floating around the great rumor mill. I have no idea if it is real or not, but I wouldn?t doubt it. Here?s a summary of the speculated things to come. Here?s a compiled list of what MacRumor?s two transcripts consist of. Remember, none of this is guaranteed and nothing is promised, so don?t hold your breath on it.

    and now you're kind of spamming the board.

    Welcome, and please enjoy your time at AI, but you're not off to the best of starts.

    I can't imagine why anyone would think to put SSD in the Mac Mini. It needs a new aluminium case and a 3.5" HDD. If it could have HDMI rather than DVI, then Apple can call it the Apple TV Pro rather than the Mac Mini.

    Thanks. LOL. Glad to be here.

    I did ask that the mods delete the other post. Also, spoke with someone that SAW the real deal FCP (new) and said it is very, VERY apple like. Not like iMovie, but different than its present carnation.

    Regarding the rumors, I knew there would be monitors. Made sense really, just gut a iMac and there you go as well as price cuts. Wish there was a sub par gaming rig. Unreal 3 plays well on iMac in Windows. OSX version due out next month.

    Also think that offering a monitor with eSATA would have been a good option. Since the iMac is gutted, why not offer the option of a EXPRESS card (similar to firmteks) that has eSATA card and room for two (2) hard drives similar to the new docking (rumored).

    Have a nice day.
