I was checking out the new products unvelied by Apple in their event yesterday, and I tried to summarize the event as follow;
iPad Mini: There was a lot of buzz about it for sometime, it’s basically a smaller version of iPad with 7.9″ screen, A5 processor, 1,024 x 768 display, and optional LTE. Price is $329 (KD95) for 16GB and $659 (KD185) for 64GB. Shipping will start in a few weeks.
13″ MacBook Pro: It’s a smaller version of the 15″ MacBook pro laptop and I think apple released it to compete with Samsung Series 9, specs are 13″ Retina display, 2,560 x 1,600 resolution, 2.5GHz i5 or i7 processor, 8GB of RAM and 128GB of flash memory, and HDMI output. I like about it that it’s only 1.9 cm thick and weighs 1.9 kg, battery lasts for 7 hrs and starting price $1,699 (KD475).
iPad 4: I didn’t see this one coming but Apple has rush to inroduce the 4th generation, maybe to compete with Microsoft Surface? Specs are A6x quad core processor, 720p HD camera, WiFi or LTE models, and comes in white or black. Price is $499 (KD145) 16GB, and $629 (KD177) 32GB and release date 2nd November.
iMac: This is what I liked, the new generation of iMac desktop looks funky (see below), also 80% slimmer than previous generation. Specs; Core i5 and Core i7 processors, 21.5″ 1080p model or 27″ with 2,560 x 1,400 model (That’s higher reolution than HD TV), NVIDIA GeForce 600 graphics card up to 32GB RAM, 768GB SSD or 3TB traditional HDD. Price starts at $1,299 (KD370).
