Apple Updates Today

Posted by Jesper on August 07, 2007

Apple released a bunch of new and updated products today:

  • New iMacs. I would buy one today if I had the slightest use for it. It looks absolutely gorgeous.
  • Updated Mac minis. Yay! We can still get cheap Mac servers.
  • New wired and wireless keyboards. I love the wireless without the numeric keypad. This way you can have your mouse closer to the keyboard, and I never use the keypad anyway (now if they could just get rid of the silly caps lock key as well). I’ve been wanting a keyboard like this ever since getting a Mac, so I ordered one immediately—the English (Int’l) version of course, the Danish layout is completely useless for writing code.
  • iLife ‘08. iMovie seems to be worth the upgrade alone. I ordered a family pack.
  • iWork ‘08. I love Keynote, so upgrading was an easy choice. The new spreadsheet, Numbers, looks like a nice addition. One more family pack in the shopping basket.
  • Updated .Mac. The new web gallery with photo and movie sharing looks like it’s worth the price alone, but I’ll wait for the reviews before deciding whether I’m going to be a .Mac user. I’d also like to see if they are going to support photo sharing from Aperture.
  • Updated AirPort Extreme. Looks like it gained gigabit ethernet, so there’s one less reason not to buy one now.

    Shopping spree
    Todays shopping spree comes out at just DKK 2097,-. That’s five copies a lot of software for very little money if you ask me—and a new keyboard too.

    Update: There’s a 30-day trial of iWork ‘08 available and a bunch of tutorials (via MacUser).
