In case you didn’t quite get it, notice the sarcasm when I said, ‘Whoop de doo’.
It’s like Apple announcements are always TOO hyped up. Honestly. As much as I am an Apple Fan Girl, I can only muster so much enthusiasm about something that’s not so ‘revolutionary’.
For this month’s Apple announcement, they released New iMacs, MacBooks, Minis, Mice and oh, yeah the remote too.
Seriously, how many times does Apple have to reinvent the iMac in a year? They made an announcement about new iMacs early March 2009 this year. After 7 months, there’s a new iMac again! And personally, I think it’s misleading that they say it’s a ‘new’ iMac. I would rather think it’s just an upgraded version, not necessarily ‘new’.
As for the MacBook, as Jayvee of the Blog Herald would say, ‘It’s a fatty!’ I was expecting thinner and sleeker design. The new MacBooks remind me of a shiny, white, slightly thin turtle shell.
I have no comments about the Minis. Poor Minis, always seem to be ignored.
But ah, the Magic Mouse. Now that’s what I’m talking about it. So the Mighty Mouse is now a Magic Mouse. I love the spaceship-y design and ofcourse, the idea of a multi-touch mouse is definitely geek-gasmic. Thank the geek gods they removed the little scroll button. It’s such a pain especially when the ball gets dirty and it doesn’t scroll up or down anymore.
Some people though might find it a bit redundant to own a Mighty Mouse especially if you’re a MacBook or MacBook Pro owner since you already have a multi-touch track pad.
So yeah, new Apple stuff. Hurray.
