Apple Planning Entirely New Mac Product Line?


Japanese site Mac Otakara briefly reports that Apple is planning to introduce an entirely new Mac product to its lineup. According to a rough translation provided with the original Japanese version, the product is said to be "absolutely different from current products" and potentially set for introduction by the end of the year.
According to anonymous source in Asian supplier company, Apple seems to be preparing project to release new Mac line-up which is absolutely different from current products until end of this year.

Though this source does not told in detail, this new Mac line seems to be clearly different products from current ones, so new product name could be given.
Mac Otakara has a mixed track record when it comes to Apple rumors. The site made news last December with its rendering of the iPad 2 case showing off a new, larger speaker that did in fact appear in the shipping version a few months later. The site also correctly reported on the iPad 2 media event and launch timeframe and introduction of Final Cut Pro X and third-party Thunderbolt devices. The site was incorrect, however, in its claim of Toggle DDR 2.0 memory for the MacBook Air.

Maybe this is why HP decided to give up the PC business.

Why not just a 'Mac'?

Budget version of the Mac Pro Desktop, with easily upgradeable internals, to be hooked up to any external screen

Would make a huge difference to market share.

This Story seems irrelevant without a time frame.

Anyone can say that Apple is going to introduce a new Mac Line in the Future.

This to me is only news if they plan on doing it soon.

A mouse is actually a proven and reliable technology as are tablets for drawing etc. iOS is a barley passable sketchy hunk of crap technology that people gobble up because it's "neat".

The consumers simple mindedness is heavily swayed by anything pretty or that makes them think "oh lookie! I can control it with my finger" which in generally followed by a goofy laugh.


Given that fingers have been around for much longer than the computer mouse, I would say they are far more proven and reliable. There is nothing more natural than manipulating content with our fingers. Humans have been doing it for a long time.
