MacBreak Weekly 163: Stroke The Mouse

by Jonathan Downin in TechOctober 21st, 2009 @ 6:38 am

MacBreak WeeklyApple released a slew of new products yesterday including a unibody iterations on the iMac and white MacBook, an up-speced Mac Mini and a new multi-touch enabled mouse, dubbed the Magic Mouse. This many big products aren’t usually launched without a keynote event, so these releases caught many off-guard.

The new iMac now come in 21.5″ and 27″ models. While 27″ sounds huge, Apple has moved to a 9×16 aspect ratio for their displays, so they are not really that much bigger, just wider. The line also received processor and RAM bumps with the highest end model outfitted with Intel i5 chip, or i7 as a $200 upgrade. This really brings the iMac up to date and makes it the best all-in-one choices available.

The Mac mini now comes in a dual HDD server model, sans disc drive and the MacBook changes are mostly based around its construction and aesthetics. Apple’s new Magic Mouse is welcome replacement for the much-hated Mighty Mouse, but we will have to wait for some more hands-on opinions before we know if it works as advertised. The group also touches quickly on B&N’s new Nook e-book reader.  Overall, it was an exciting day in the Apple world and the guys share their excitement here.

The team covers Apple’s release of new iMacs, Mac Minis, a new mouse, and more.
