Apple’s New Mac Minis to be Released in August?
According to a rumor, the new Macs with speedy Sandy Bridge processors and Thunderbolt ports are said to arrive this August.
Bees are buzzing with regards to Apple’s launching of its new Mac Pro this coming August. The newest Mac Mini is said to add up the latest Sandy Bridge processor from Intel, and the new high-speed Thunderbolt port.
Last Sunday, CNet’s Brian Tong wrote on his Twitter account that “all new” next-generation Mac Pros and Mac Minis will be launched “either end of July (or) first week of August.” He then posted another tweet pointing out that the August buzz is “more likely”, and the Sandy Bridge and Thunderbolt would be included on both machines. Brian Tong also added that there are no specs or configurations being released yet.
It was in July 2010 when the Mac Pro was last updated. Its tower was upgraded to 12 processing cores with Intel Xeon processors, which made them up to 50% faster than their prototypes. Moreover, a revamped Mac Mini was released in June featuring some new specs, including a HDMI port which is very helpful in connecting with a high-definition television, and a built-in SD card slot for getting videos and photos from a digital camera. The Mac Mini is 7.7 inches square and 1.4 inches which costs $699.
The Apple’s MacBook Air is also expected to have its upgraded versions using the Sandy Bridge processors and a Thunderbolt port. The AppleInsider announced last week that the company will not release any Mac hardware until Mac OS X 10.7 Lion, the company’s next-generation operating system, goes on sale this July.View Article Source »
