1. An ipod nano that can sync with notification center and Siri so I can use it for quick action on my iphone.
2. An iphone with a 4" screen
3. A Macbook pro that uses SSD and HDD

I'd love to hear everybody else's wishes.

A new Mac Pro, or at least something decent to replace it with. A latter day Cube would be cool. It was always Steve's favourite, so you never know. If they priced within the reach of your average prosumer, but made it expandable enough to suit a typical pro, I think they'd be onto a winner.

As much as I love my cube (though its collecting dust in my closet), it was an utter failure. over priced, prone to over heating and no expandability. Still it was a great computer.

As for the MacPro, there's been a lot of discussion of apple drifting away from the professional market and being such the MacPro may not receive the love that every hopes.

As for 2012 wishes here's mine.
  • 4G capable iPhone
  • 7" iPad - yeah steve dissed the 7" tablet, but he dissed a lot of things and then released them. Apple had stated that the iPhone didn't need multitasking but then did it, so a 7" tablet may happen.
  • New MBP design

Obviously if they redid the Cube they'd have to be careful not to repeat the mistakes of last time. Apple's continued focus on consumers and, more recently, prosumers is one of the reasons I'm so keen on the idea - they could price it within reach of prosumers, but make it expandable enough to cater to pros as well. Everyone wins.

If they made it I would buy one.
