Mac Desktop Watch Day Number.....

October 9, 2012 - Dave Hecei

It has been over a year since Apple updated their desktop line of Macintosh computers. This statement doesn't really mean there is a problem with or at Apple, but it does make one wonder if desktops are really on their minds.

Apple is making plenty of money selling iPhones, iPad, and Macbooks so it's obvious where their focus is at. Both the iMac and Mac mini are long overdue. The mini was last updated back in July of 2011 and the iMac was back in May of 2011.

The problem is that Apple has updated the entire laptop line with the latest Intel Ivy Bridge chips. The iMac and mini are still running on previous generation Sandy Bridge chips. Ivy Bridge has been available to Apple since around April of 2011 since the desktop version of the chips were available before the notebook version. Of course Ivy Bridge chips run faster than Sandy Bridge, but more importantly brings faster video and USB 3.0 ports.

On the positive side, when Apple finally has new desktops they will just magically appear in the online Apple Store one morning (either a Tuesday or Wednesday). They won't have any press event with a keynote presentation, they will just release them.
