Apple Unveils iMacs, Mac Mini, Magic Mouse, And MacBook
A day after announcing record sales, Apple introduced a 27-inch iMac, Mac Minis running Snow Leopard Server, a new mouse that supports multitouch gestures, and more.
Apple on Tuesday refreshed the iMac and Mac Mini in time for the holiday-shopping season, adding a 27-inch screen to the all-in-one desktop and adding Snow Leopard Server as an option for Apple’s lowest-priced desktop.
In addition, Apple introduced a wireless mouse that uses the same multi-touch technology found in the iPhone, and started offering a redesigned MacBook, the company’s lowest-priced notebook.
The upgrades came a day after Apple reported that Mac and iPhone sales drove stellar earnings for the third quarter of the calendar year. Profits soared to $1.67 billion and revenue rose nearly $2 billion.
In an attempt to keep the momentum going, the company’s latest refresh beefs up processor speed and graphics performance while maintaining the same price as older models.
The latest iMacs include an LED-backlit, high-definition display with a 178-degree viewing angle. The 27-inch model features a 2560-by-1440 pixel screen offering 60% more pixels than the previous 24-inch model, which has been dropped along with the old 20-inch version. Apple now offers a 21.5-inch iMac, along with the 27-inch model.
