It’s Tuesday, and that often means new stuff from Apple. This week is no exception, although the product in question isn’t exactly “new” -- it’s the same OS X Lion released back on July 20 to the Mac App Store, but available at a higher price on a USB thumb drive.
$999 is a magical price point for Mac computers, even though Apple rarely reaches that number. Perhaps that’s why it’s newsworthy that the company has quietly introduced a 21.5-inch iMac model aimed at the educational market -- with a few compromises, naturally.
Thunderbolt is finally here! On the heels of a small software update Monday night, Apple has started selling their own $49 cable as well as Promise Pegasus R4 and R6 RAID systems available in capacities ranging from 4TB all the way up to 12TB.
Did Phil Schiller tell a little white lie about a little white iPhone being on track for this spring? In an ominous sign of the troubled handset’s future, Apple’s online store went down for maintenance at midnight last night and came back up with the white iPhone 4 removed entirely.
Maybe you’re frustrated by availability of the iPad 2, so you decide to head to Apple’s website to buy one of the original models from their clearance section. Unfortunately, if you want a Wi-Fi only model, it may already be too late.
If you planned to skip the lines on Friday and wake up to order your iPad 2 from Apple’s online store, you might have a bit of a shock. The good news is, you can order it right now; the bad news is, shipping times are current five to seven days.
Out with the old, in with the new: Just as Apple posted their extensive iPad 2 information on the website after the announcement Wednesday, the price of the first-generation model got a steep discount, with each model slashed by $100 -- or more, if you don’t mind going refurbished.
If you were up in the wee hours of Wednesday morning -- perhaps too excited to sleep with Macworld Expo 2011 just around the corner -- you may have noticed that Apple’s website got a few subtle tweaks.
