Apple media event, Tue Aug 7th

Rumors are that we'll see the next generation of the iMac, as well as possibly a look at a next revision of the iPod to launch in time for the holidays.

Looks like the Mac Mini may be discontinued, as well.

Yay Apple events!

The more new iPods that come out, the cheaper all the other older iPods get.

Right? Or am I just deluded?

Well, they get cheaper on eBay, but I'm pretty sure Apple will just stop selling the older models.

I tend to think that the new iPods will be like the iPhone insofar as no more click wheel. I envision a wheel popping up on screen. And the picture when watching movies will be so much better. If I'm right, that is.

Hmm the new iMac looks intriguing. I like the smaller form-factor. The new screen border looks a tad bit close to those Toshiba notebooks, at least that is what it reminds me of.

I'm sure I'll warm up to it. Price drops never hurt, either.

People seem to either love or hate glossy flatscreen displays, however, compared to a matte display. That thing is going to need a lot of wiping with the included cloth

I've been looking into getting a new iMac. Glad I waited, since these new models will be cheaper...

iWork has always included Pages, but Numbers is new. I'm interested in the new iPhoto...but not sure if I want to spend the $79...since they basically took away the education discount on iLife and iWork

I think the new 24-inch iMac is going to be my next computer.

Dont forget about keynote in iWork too... my sense of new iPods points to September, I do believe in the new iPod nano with video capabilites. Maybe iPod 6th G with multitouch. Anyway I'm proud of the new iMacs they look like big iPhones. Actually someone said they were separated at birth. LOL ! Btw... This was posted from my new iphone

I just got a new Macbook in May, so there's not going to be any new Mac purchases for quite awhile from me. For me, iLife isn't a great deal because I don't really shoot video, and what little I do is handled well by the current iMovie. So, the only iLife application that I use on a frequent basis (besides iTunes, which is free) is iPhoto. Not worth $79 to me...I am considering buying iWork for college, mostly for Keynote. But, yeah, for people who were holding off on buying Macs, this is a great deal.

iLife has an educator's discount - it's $71 for single user, $99 for the family pack (5 machines). Roughly a 10% discount.
