Just heading into listen to a presentation by Henry Manne, but wanted to mention there are a number of new goodies at the Apple Store. In particular, new iMacs that look absolutely incredible.
The pricing for the iMac line starts at the same US$1199, but that's where the similarities stop. The displays are now backlit by LEDs, providing better energy efficiency. The 21.5" model has a screen resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, which is the equivalent of a 1080p HDTV. That screen size is actually 90% of the resolution of the old 24" iMac. Resolution on the 27" model is 2560 x 1440 pixels. Both of the new iMacs use the IPS display technology for excellent color fidelity and a very wide (178°) viewing angle...Follow the link for more details. The Apple Store in Clarendon will have some of the new ones in by Friday.
What's really incredible is a new feature for the iMacs that allows them to act as external monitors or HDTVs. You'll be able to attach DVD players, Blu-Ray players, gaming consoles, or even other computers, and display them on the bright, clear, iMac display.
Other new goodies include a new Mac Mini, Macbook, and multi-touch mouse.
