    This has been the rumor for how many years now?

    I'll believe it when Apple announces it. Until then, no use in getting worked up just to be let down again.

    The idea is that Apple would eliminate the MacBook Air line and would introduce a new, inexpensive MacBook.

    You guys seem to forget that the last hardware event was last September. A full on year of being silent, until the event where these will show up... They have no choice but to knock it out of the park.

    And who can forget the debut of the wireless charger. :D

    “Processor upgrades expected” with or without meltdown?

    the same for me. :D

    I'm about ready to crawl into the fetal position in a corner if most of this turns out to be true.

    I replaced my AW0 with a Series 3 LTE last week. I chose not to wait. :) (Don't care about a larger display and I'm happy with the current model.) All I can say is WOW!

    I'm just sorry I waited as long as I did—but I was was using it as a reward and my tasks took a lot longer than I expected.

    Likewise, I'd be interested in a 40mm display Apple Watch if the 42mm watch bands fit.

    Can we get a Macbook with greater than 16GB?

    ...Ok, didn’t think so.

    Any Mac mini rumor is good news at this point. Though a return to quad-core for the mini is very likely given Intel's Coffee Lake chips, the big unknown is whether or not it will make a return to upgradable RAM and go SSD / Fusion drive only. A Mac mini with quad-core (hex-core as a high-end option), 2x Thunderbolt 3 / USB-C, PCIe SSD, and upgradable RAM would be great.

    Already bought my Series 3 Watch but I'm lusting for a new 12.9 iPP so I'm glad to see that rumor. That thing is going to be pricy . . . .

    Hey Apple, make the mini great again with superior graphics and processors. Let the users again configure the internals with third party components instead of soldered RAM and viciously locked access to the internals...

    "Processor upgrades expected"

    My dear chap -- processor upgrades have been expected for the last 3 years.

    My Series 0 Watch is still fine, but it is slower than molasses and is now EOL in terms of OS updates so I will eventually need to replace it and a larger one could be cool.

    And all I want in a new Mac Mini is TB3 and a fast SSD so if we get that I am satisfied, but of course I hope there is more (standard or via options) for the rest of those who have been waiting so many years for a refresh.

    Is this is true then it sounds good to me.

    Although as someone who follows the latest developments in the world of CPU's and GPU's I'm very curious as to what processors they will be putting in the updated Macbook? 10nm isn't ready yet and I haven't seen any worthwhile low power Coffee Lake or Whisky Lake chips.

    Disappointed in the iPhone news. By all means have a cheaper iPhone but make it a 5" or smaller design, not a giant 6"+ model. What are people like my wife going to buy? She already thinks my 4.7" 6S is too big.

    I've been VERY tempted to just bite the bullet on a series 3, but I'm holding back for now lol. We'll see how long that lasts :D

    I'm hoping the increased screen sizes don't break band support. That would mean that 38mm bands work on the new 40mm model, and similarly for the new bigger watch. I don't think current 42mm bands will work on the new 40mm model.
