New iMacs, Airport Extreme and Mac mini speed bump, Xserve hardware RAID, iLife ’08, iWork ’08

Highlights of todays announcements

  • Sexier iMacs with sexier keyboards (minus the Apple logo on the Command key)
  • Airport Extreme ports bumped to 1 Gigabit
  • Mac Mini bumped to Core 2 Duo and 1Gb memory (still no 802.11n or better graphics chip)
  • iLife ’08 (interestingly iMovie now requires a G5 or better, so no PowerBooks!)
  • iWork ’08 (now with “Numbers” spreadsheet)
  • Xserves get a build-to-order hardware RAID controller for US$999

Interestingly both Numbers and Pages mention that they’ll import AppleWorks documents, and have a US$249 site licence deal for K-12 schools (not Higher Ed).

  1. It’s the airport *extreme* that has been updated, not the airport express, unfortunately.
