Apple will always be at the spotlight of any release rumors. These have been the affliction of all well-known innovators in the industry. Apple hardware rumored releases have been talked of the tech-community for the past month. And all of these rumors are rumored to unveil on rumored Apple event on March 24th.
According to Engadget, here is the list of what stake at the rumored event:
- The iMac will apparently come in an entry level MB147 20-inch model, as well as three 24-inch SKUs: MB148 “mass-market,” MB149 “high-end,” and MB420 “ultimate.” All models will go to mini DisplayPort and feature Core 2 Duos up to 3.06GHz.
- The Mac mini will indeed feature five USB ports and that funky dual mini-DVI / mini DisplayPort configuration, but it’s also apparently going to an NVIDIA chipset like the MacBooks and iMac. The base MB463 model will start with a 2.0GHz Core 2 Duo, and there’s also a “high-end” MB464 configuration.
- The Mac Pro will come in eight-core configurations from 3.0GHz to 3.6GHz and 16-core configurations in 3.6GHz and 4.0GHz flavors, and it sounds like it’s going to be even funkier on the video tip — our tipster says it has two regular DVI ports and a mini DisplayPort. Sure, okay. It’s also apparently a bit lighter than the current model, at 35 pounds instead of 42.
- Tipster Tom noted that the Airport Extreme and Time Capsule FCC filings contain direct references to simultaneous 5GHz and 2.4GHz operation, so that’s looking even more probable.
Let’s see what will be announced in the following days, or let’s stay tuned for the said Apple event on March 24th.
