New Apple part numbers leak: iMac, Mac mini, Time Capsule & Airport updates

The Apple Store is still down and the Cupertino company themselves are still tight-lipped, but thanks to Apple Insider we have a pretty reasonable idea of what might be on the virtual shelves in the next few hours.  They've received a list of product numbers, complete with some descriptions, which suggest Apple are readying a few new Mac mini units (one without an optical drive), a new 21.5-inch iMac, two new Time Capsules (1TB and 2TB) and a new Airport Extreme.

Updated: All the details of the new ranges here.

Full list after the cut

As for accessories, a new Apple VESA mount adapter is listed, together with a 60W MagSafe power adapter for the MacBook.  No new plastic MacBook to go with it, however.  One reasonably mysterious item is the "K84 BEST BTR- USA" which so far has left us guessing, while the "SIM dualband" reference in the Time Capsule and Airport Extreme might indicate some sort of WWAN cellular connectivity, perhaps as a backup option for your main broadband connection, but perhaps more likely refer to MIMO antennas.

The list is apparently courtesy of "reliable sources" and given Apple Insider's previous track-record of tipping launches just before their announcement we're inclined to believe them.  Unfortunately there's no sign of the multitouch mouse or tablet we've heard about recently.
