Apple to Update Nearly All Macs at WWDC [REPORT]

Apple plans to launch an updated version of several devices in its Mac lineup at its annual WWDC conference, 9to5Mac reports citing unnamed sources.

We’ve already heard reports of a thinner 15” MacBook Pro with a Retina display, and we’ve also heard Apple plans to launch a cheaper MacBook Air later this year. 9to5Mac ‘s sources confirm updates to both lines though details about exact configurations are absent.

As for the rest of the updates, sources claim that 4 out of 5 Apple Mac lines will get an update, with one likely candidate being the iMac, though it’s unclear if it will also get a higher resolution display. Other details are unknown.

This leaves the Mac mini and the Mac Pro. While both lines could use an upgrade, the Mac Pro hasn’t been updated in years. Apple needs to either start refreshing its professional grade desktop system, or cutting it from its lineup altogether.

Apple’s WWDC conference runs from June 11 – 15 in San Francisco; the schedule is available here .

NYT:
By Xeni Jardin at 8:43 am Sunday, Jun 3 Here's the opening graf (bold-ing, mine): MEN invented the Internet. And not just any men. Men with pocket protectors. Men who idolized Mr. Spock and cried when Steve Jobs died. Nerds. Geeks. Give them their due. Without men, we would never know what our friends were doing five minutes ago.
