WWDC 2013 Hardware Expectations: MacBook Air, Retina Pro, Mac Pro refresh

Monday will be the day that Apple brings its yearly developers conference to the city of San Francisco once again, with plenty of software updates in the wings: but what about hardware? Here in the week before WWDC 2013, several devices have been tipped or otherwise leaked, with upgrades and refreshes of devices we've seen in the past looking to be the stars of the main event keynote. This will mirror last years' event in which several notebooks were given upgrades and the Mac Pro was given a boost behind the scenes.

WWDC 2013: what you WON’T be seeing

WWDC 2013: what you WON’T be seeing

Starting Monday, Apple's 2013 iteration of their developers convention WWDC begins in San Francisco - and there's a lot you'll not be seeing. It's not that there'll be a lot of information under the skin and behind closed doors, that's not what this is all about. Instead, it's all about what's still in the wings at Apple, what's not quite ready to be released, and what will never, ever be released, especially not next week.

Dear Apple: Where Is My Mac Pro?

As I sat here today thinking about what I should write for my latest column here on SlashGear, I was distracted. I didn’t look at the latest news, like I usually do, and I wasn’t particularly interested in anything in particular. My mind was entirely dominated by one thought: the computer I was about to write the column on.

Apple hates the Mac Pro, doesn’t it?

Apple hates the Mac Pro, doesn’t it?

Apple’s event on Tuesday was fun. The company offered up a slew of hardware products for consumers to drool over, and it did a fine job of appealing to everyone from mobile customers to computer purchasers.

The iPad mini will undoubtedly be a fan favorite, as will the fourth-generation iPad. The new iMac is downright beautiful with a thinness that has yet to be matched. Even the 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display, which is admittedly expensive, should attract quite a few customers.

New iMac and Mac Pro models could ditch optical drives

Apple refreshed its line of notebooks at WWDC in June, but the Mac Pro and iMac were left out of the festivities. Apple later confirmed that updates for both machines were on the way, and now Apple Insider has discovered references to new models after digging around inside some configuration files. When examining the Boot Camp files, references to several unreleased Mac Pros and iMacs were discovered, with the specific model numbers listed in a place that indicates they may not come with optical drives.
