All the chips are now M3 variants, with as many as possible on all systems being the 8GB RAM standard package, across iMac, mini, Air, and Vision Pro, which will be unexpectedly released early tomorrow.

This economy of scale on 3nm process would give Apple a generational advantage in hardware for the next 2-3 years.

That's the dream.

The reality will be "scary fast" speed of the newly adopted USB-C port across much/most of the lineup including new iMacs (which have had that connector for some time now.)

I'm really hoping Apple kills any single-display-capable-only version of a MacBook "Pro"...

"Scary Fast" refers to your money disappearing.

A ton of people will be unhappy.

Some will even say "ho-hum" ;)

No 27" or 32" iMac, and I and others will complain.

In reality, what I am looking for is an Apple-quality 32" consumer monitor. Whatever they are making now, frankly, sucks. I do NOT want a monitor running off an AppleTV to connect to my Mac! I want to directly attach.

5 PM start time... Is this something like a What We Do in the Shadows live stream, or is it a wait until the market closes so the overnight rumination has time to dull the pain.

My prediction is that I will be uninterested in any of the items at the prices they'll be. Sure, I'd love a 14 or 16" MBP, but not for the price. The current 13" MBP shouldn't even be called a "Pro" model.

Out of curiosity, what price would get you in? and what specs?

The 13” 8/256 should be 16/512. And I’d buy one at $999. The current 14” at 16/256, if they updated to M3, I’d pay $1,499. But it’ll take a couple of years to get a refurb at those prices.

Same time as the World Series, I know which one I'm not watching or buying.

Yawn. All good for those that need it. Otherwise I find that I can get things done just fine on my M1 macBook.

I think Apple is regretting starting the move to custom silicon with such a great machine. I think a 16/1TB M1 MBA (plus a DisplayLink hub) would replace 99% of what I do. I know it was as functional in CPU speed as a top-of-the-line Intel MBP with 64GB RAM. And far quieter (no fans) and all-day battery life.
