Today, Apple added several new products to their line-up, the iPad Mini, iPad 4th Gen and new iMac, Mac Mini, plus a 13inch MacBook Pro.
The iPad Mini will be 7.2 mm thin and measured at 7.9 inches diagonally with a resolution of 1024×768, it will be made of aluminium and glass making it significantly lighter. Also, all of the current iPad apps will work on the iPad mini. On the inside it will have a dual core A5 chip, LTE radio, and a 5 megapixel camera (with 1080p video recording). It will also utilise the new lightning connector and it has a 10 hour battery life.
iPad 4th Gen
There has not been much change to the iPad except it now has a A6X chip making it quite a bit quicker than the A5X chip. It now has 4G which make it amazingly quick for people downloading or viewing web content (if available where you are!). There has also been an update to the dock connector; the iPad 4th Gen uses the lightning connector.
Wow, this is incredibly thin! It is actually 80% thinner than the previous generation, which is a huge change! There are now two models, a 21 inch (1920×1080 pixels) and a 27 inch (2560x1440pixels).
The 21 inch will be a 2.7GHz i5 with 8Gb of RAM with a 1TB HDD, the 27 inch will be a 2.9GHz with 8GB of RAM plus a NVIDIA GTX660M graphics Card and a 1TBHDD.
There will be three models one that is a 2.5Ghz dual core i5 with 4Gb of RAM and a 500Gb HDD, a 2.3Ghz quad core i7, 4Gb of Ram and a 1TB HDD model. The other Mac Mini is an OSX server, 2.3 GHz quad core i7 with 4GB of RAM and two 1TB HDD’s
The 13 inch MacBook Pro has been updated to contain a Retina Display with 2560×1600 resolution and will be about 20% lighter than the previous model. There will be no optical drive in this model however it will have two thunderbolt ports, two USB 3.0 ports and will weigh approximately 1.6 kgs
This has been a huge launch for Apple, they have definitely outdone themselves and I am sure that all of these products will sell very well. I will be very keen for the next launch to see what they can come up with!
