    That and I don't think revealing a brand new product line after just announcing another one is a good idea. Gotta keep the hype up somehow.

    It seems "It's been too long" for many of Apple's products. The question then becomes which ones are going to be focused on in this event.

    What they mean is its been way too long since an iMac refresh, so better make a imac pro this time. Also the colors of the apple is in 5k, just scaled down

    Me, too. I don't even care about the 4k / 5k res... I just want a thinner Thunderbolt display with relevant ports (USB 3.0) on the back.

    The round hole in the center can hold my chips or snacks while I'm programming! :)

    Not convinced they'll update and/or keep the Mac Mini following the introduction of a cheaper iMac earlier this year. Would be nice if they added a cheaper Mac Pro with a spec targeted at gamers rather than pro's.

    Perhaps whatever they announce will be available for sale the next day (or even "available for sale immediately, shipping tomorrow").

    Also, notice how the center of the picture is the space separating the stem from the apple.

    I think the tagline is for the Mac Mini. I'm hoping the 12" iPad will be Cook's "one more thing."

    It's been way too long since an update to AppleTV. But that's not it.:confused:

    Didn't they have the design only and none built at the time of reveal? Like the Apple Watch? That's probably the safest way– no products, no leaks.

    24 Inch

    I wish they'd do a 24 inch iMac - I find the 27 inch too big and "bulky" and the 21 inch too small. And yeah a whole month since the last apple event is "way too long." So unless they update the Apple TV and/or Mac Mini, the tag line is stupid. :rolleyes::rolleyes:

    I always liked the colors on the old Apple logo. That logo is deeply associated with the Macintosh, not with recent products. I hope we will see new Macs.

    "Way too long" definitely points to Mac Mini and Display. But knowing Apple, this might mean anything else as well.

    Introducing the all new iAshtray. 100% more efficient at collecting the ashes of your cigarette or burnt out iPhone battery. This changes everything. Again.

    Apple hasn't done much with the Magic Mouse or Trackpad for a while. New magical pointing devices for everyone! :eek:
