Holiday Lineup

Posted:
in Future Apple Hardware edited January 2014
Obviously the current Apple product lineup is not going to be the official "Holiday" lineup. There will be changes made before November - but what will they be?



-MacBook Pro Upgrades

-iPod Video

-Early iTV? (Similar to the early Intel transition - but much much faster?)

-Leopard!!!



In all likelyhood, there will just be minor speed upgrades, or will there?

    MacBook is 6 months by then.

    And we know how correct Apple was in their consumer portable upgrades until the last iBook

    MBP Core 2

    MacBook updated to 2.0GHz and 2.16 (maybe 2.33)

    Not sure about iPods, this weeks update seems like an end of line update (price cut, not that much on the actual iPod updated). iPods are usually updated ready for Christmas though, and I'm thinking there could be a 640x480 video iPod (same resolution as new iTunes store video movies) soon.

    Well, three months after MWSF is not too long, but not too short either.

    Probably just the MBP, and maybe the macbook a bit later.

    You will NOT see leopard. iPod Video is a possibility but I would not count on it.



    iTV is also a slight possibility but more likely MWSF.
