Apple’s New Prosumer Desktop?
This is the first post to this blog – i just couldn’t wait.
I have a friend (who will remain nameless) that just got hired to be an Apple Rep. I think he’ll just be the guy who sets up displays in CompUSAs or something. Anyway, Apple flew him out to Cupertino for the week for training. He’s been out there for a few days now, and just today, while i was in the middle of putting this blog together, i got a Picture Message from him. Three actually.
I was so excited that i just decided this blog looks good enough for now, and it’ll have to go live (in beta) so i can post these images.
It looks like Apple is releasing a smaller cheaper thing that i might have called a “MacProMidget” …but it looks sweet.
So here’s the first delicious image: (i assume that’s the MacPro on the left, and the new MacTower on the right)
More Images after the break!
I’ve called the guy who sent me these images, but he refuses to tell me anything else at all. All i know is that he took these with his cameraphone, and whatever info i can get from the pictures.
Apparently they’re also releasing a 24″ LCD with a built-in iSight… which makes since due to their recent 24″ iMac announcement…
I’m saving up for a 23″ Apple LCD right now, but i’d much rather a 24″ with a built-in iSight! that would be excellent!
And the best image of them all:
It looks to me like it’s basically iMac internals with room for expansion in a sick little case, with only 1 optical drive. …and really that’s basically exactly what i want. the iMac is SOO appealing, but i’m just so drawn to a desktop! internal expandability is so great, and i want whatever huge LCD screen i buy next (probably that 24″ LCD if this is true) to actually be useful when i get a new machine. i couldn’t imagine my 24″ screen being eternally tied to a certain hardware configuration! that would be horrible! (maybe an iMac would be better with a DVI input!)
Maybe this is what Apple has in store for September 12th? I’m all over this if it turns out to be true… all over it.
More than likely it’s just another rumor. …then again i haven’t seen it anywhere yet. Here’s hoping it’s true.
