This was the biggest Apple keynote ever.

New stuff that ships today:


Stuff they did not announce but updated anyway:

Stuff Apple dumped:

Stuff they pre-announced:

Please note, that all supported devices have a camera. 1st gen iPad and iPod 1st, 2nd and 3rd do not have a camera. The interesting thing is support for the iPhone 3GS because that does not have a front facing camera for FaceTime. And speaking of which, iOS 6 will finally support FaceTime over 3G.

No new iPhone, no new Apple TV. Did I miss anything?

Na sowas. Der Taucheranzug für iPad 2 und 3.

Where do you think the laptop "sweet spot" is now?

Rob McDonagh, 2012-06-11

sicher dass der 17" MacbookPro nicht mehr gebaut wird ???? (viell. ist er ein "Nachzügler" oder lohnt sich ein Fünkchen Hoffnung eher nicht ? :-) )

I don't know, Rob. I work on an iMac and travel with an iPad. Maybe I could use the $1099 MacBook Air.

MagSafe 2 und Konverter.

Aperture 3.3 - wobei ich mir etwas mehr erhofft hätte.

Rob, the 13-inch $1,199 MacBook Pro is the sweet spot for me. The Air's specs have mostly caught up with this MBP but it does not have enough storage capacity for my needs. I can make the system last longer when I can affordably upgrade the memory and hard drive. In case 128GB of storage is not a concern, then I would go with the $1,199 Air. I really like the 13-inch form factor on the road and connected to a large display at work/home.

>> Updated iPad Smart Case
>> Unified iPhoto+Aperture library format
>> Developer tools pleasantness - no explanation necessary if you are one :-)

- RAM cannot be replaced (only via Apple)
- same for HDD/SSD

:-(

Ingo, the reasoning behind that is that for exchangable parts you need to use standard components and compromise around them in your internal design. Not doing is that is a key take for Apple on the "next generation" and as I understand it a lesson learned from the iOS devices.
That of course does not mean that it is good for everyone. In the future it will be either use a MacBook and have no replacable parts but better battery life, thinner and lighter design, maybe quieter and cooler devices or use a DELL, HP, ASUS, ... Windows Notebook that gives you the flexibility to tinker but stays behind in battery life, thinness, lightness etc..

No new iMac...
