Power Nap is intriguing. It only works with a few MacBooks, currently. The 13-inch Retina Pro has it. Downloads, etc while sleeping.
Starts at 2.5Ghz dual-core i5 for $1,699. w/8GB RAM and 128GB of memory.
Schiller talking up an environmental checklist with Energy Star 5.2, EPEAT Gold, Arsenic-free display glass, mercuary-free display, BFR-free, etc. Now we see an advertisement for it.
$1699 for base config, but I imagine many people will want to upgrade the base 128GB of flash storage.
The ad's just like the one for the 15-inch model, with a slowly rotating computer doing various things.
And that's done with quickly.
No word on other models yet -- Schiller breaking down Mac lineup with MacBook Air, MacBook Pro and MBP with Retina Display.
There's still a non-Retina MacBook Pro @ 13 inches.
Next up: Mac Mini. Schiller jokes "you knew there would be something with 'mini' in this presentation, right?" to a big laugh.
Those thicker Pros are sticking around...and with the price differential, for good reason.
Schiller going over specs real quick. USB 3 now, now with dual or quad-intel Core i5 or i7 Ivy Bridge, with Intel HD Graphics 4000, and up to 16GB of RAM. Starts at 2.5Ghz dual-core i5 w/4GB of RAM and 500GB HDD for $599.
There's also a server edition for $999 that had two 1TB hard drives. Ships today.
Schiller moved through that entire product in about a minute, yeesh.
That 2TB Mini server tempting for a home computer/storage hub.
Schiller talking up the iMac's design, saying it's the flagship of the product line.
I've been smelling a redesign since I boarded that plane
Schiller puts up an image of the original iMac, up through the generations. All seven of them.
"The next-generation of iMac."
Super thin design. Looks a whole lot like the current iMac, but without a computer in the back.
New design looks like a giant iPad on a stand. Razor-thin.
OS stays on flash memory. All the software that comes pre-installed comes on flash storage. Things like media and docs stay on HDD.
Users can also move apps and files over between the two sides of the drive to tweak performance. Schiller pulls up a chart to show how this can help with something like app speed. "You get near the performance of Flash," he says "without having to do anything else."
All base apps and OS elements stay on flash. Other hybrid hard drives often have more like 32GB or 64GB of SSD.
iMac comes with wireless keyboard and a Magic Mouse or Trackpad. Starts at $1,299.
For the 21.5 inch model with 2.7ghz i5 chip. They ship in November.
27-inch iMac w/2.9ghz quad core i5 ships for $1,799. Start shipping in December.
That base iMac is a pretty tempting package.
