Yes, Apple has done it again: they’ve updated and revamped most of their products, but “forgot” to launch that so long awaited touch tablet. If you want to look on the bright side, at least we’ve got an updated MacBook to check out, with a thinner form factor, plastic body and cleaner beveled edges.
The same new MacBook incorporates a multitouch trackpad, a 2.26 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor and an upgrade in the graphics department, where it sports a NVIDIA GeForce 9400M graphics processor with 256MB of DDR2 SDRAM (shared). A 13.3 inch screen completes the specs and moving on, we discover a new iMac, that’s also slimmer and comes with a 21.5 inch LED backlit display, plus a 3.01 or 3.33 GHz Intel C2D CPU.
There’s also a 27 inch LED display version out there, featuring a quad core Intel i5 processor, running at 2.66 GHz, or the i7 version, at 2.8 GHz. In case you’re wondering about RAM, know that the new iMac comes with 4 DIMM slots, for a total of 16GB of memory. The Mac Mini’s upgrades are neglectable (256MB 9400M NVIDIA graphics chip, more storage and L2 cache), while the last on the list is the Magic Mouse.
The revamped accessory features gesture-based GUI navigation, two finger scrolling, swiping and more advanced gestures. How about that Apple Tablet? Will Microsoft’s Courier see the light of day before the multitouch tablet gets announced?
