    Apple site said $1199/1699. I assume the 1199 is the lowest of the 21inches.

    Wow - only i3s - apart from the highest end. I was expecting i5s at least in all.


    No Mac Pros.. still.

    Are the ATI Radeon HD 5670 any good for games? Did apple up the graphic cards due to Steam?

    Finally got rid of the Core 2 Duo processors. Sadly, the video choice, while significantly better, could have been a tad bit better. Shouldn't they have 1GB video ram across the whole line, no?

    The CPU upgrade is OK. My only problem is with pricing. Especially in Euros ...

    The Mac Pros were updated also:
    http://www.apple.com/macpro/

    12 cores ... for 5000 $.


    Quad-core starting at $2499.
    8-core starting at $3499.
    12-core starting at $4999.

    Wow, i know this wasn't expected to be a major update, but God forbid Apple would come up with a new design! I've been waiting literally six years for a design that wasn't just a computer-in-a-monitor. Another year, another disappointment. Did they fire all the guys who did the iMac G4?

    SSD + Normal Hard Drive

    This was a nice surprise. Still a little pricy, but very tempting!

    It appears that you can now buy a 256GB SSD for $600 extra.

    I assume that should be 500GB...

    And 4TB of RAM seems like an awful lot.
