    Yep, better ask your Boss for one, as you'll need the extra income! ;)

    No more rumors about the SE2? Great, phablet phones for my small hands. But it gets better, larger watches for my small wrists! These devices are growing to Android sizes!

    Yeah! Let's screw up the only hassle-free Macbook.

    While I agree it would be odd timing (surely they'll want to do a big blowout at WWDC when macOS goes ARM?), I think you could pretty easily get away with doing it in a Mac mini, and maybe this new 'low-end' MacBook/Air, since all they really need is the Finder, Safari, Photos, and iTunes mostly.

    But I also think Apple's let the mini languish long enough that you could have a new ARM emulate x86 faster than the current mini, so it could be completely transparent, and future-ready.

    My guess is a faster refresh rate. That would be interesting, a 120hz display.

    My mac mini's are in their last legs. One I had to revert back to Sierra after it almost got bricked trying to upgrade to High Sierra. However, I mainly use them as a Photos server for my apple tv's, and as a CardDAV and CalDAV servers. For me, these are private data that I would not, and cannot (via NDAs) put in possession of third parties. But since Server is now dead, I'm not sure I'll upgrade my mini's.

    Interested in a mac mini and imac upgrade. I want to be able to use the imac as a monitor in the future when updates are no longer coming. My mac minis both work fine for my needs so I really dont need to upgrade them other than to be prepared for the eventual non support but all that I'd ask is for usb-c support (and still maintain usb a ports for my logitech dongle) and give me easier access to upgrade/replace the internal storage.

    You took the words out of my mouth…
    Hopefully it will be more than just that.

    How about a freaking Mac Pro! With an Apple 5K display! With a newly designed and better Airport (yes, Airport)! With LOTS of ports, including Thunderbolt 2 AND USB-C!

    I know, I know: wishful thinking...

    The MacBook Air shouldn't be killed off - give it the screen upgrade it should have received a couple of years ago, along with the normal processor bump, and it is a fine computer at a premium price.

    Bound to be.
    Probably a glorified iPad.

    I mean, they got rid of dGPU in the 21" iMac then brought it back, so it's possible they'd bring that back in the MacMini too.

    I desperately need a new MBP but I'm not buying one until they fix the keyboard.

    A notch on the iPad would also be a killer, a stab right into my heart.

    I really hope AMD releases new GPUs by then. Waiting so long just for CPU upgrades would be ridiculous.

    Google removed 1440p option for Mac users.

    Google is crap, what you expect?

    Google refuses to support H.265 on YouTube and Apple refuses to support VP9 in Safari. I think Apple is right to back H.265 as the standard going forward (Google themselves developed VP9, though it does have the advantage of being royalty-free), but both companies are acting stubborn and hence no 4K for Safari on YouTube.
