Apple Refreshes Mac Mini, iMac, Mac Pro

Mac Mini
Mac Mini now comes with Intel Core 2 processor and NVIDIA GeForce 9400M graphics card.

iMac now comes in 4 flavors, one 20 incher and three 24 incher powered by Intel Core 2 processor and NVIDIA GeForce 9400M or NVIDIA GeForce GT 120/130 graphics.

Mac Pro
Mac Pro now comes powered by Quad-Core Intel Xeon “Nehalem” processor and NVIDIA GeForce GT 120 with 512MB graphics and equipped with a Mini DisplayPort and dual-link DVI port on the graphics card for flexible display options.

MacBook Pro
Apple also quietly bumped the speed of the upper end 15 incher MacBook Pro from Intel Core 2 Duo T9400 2.53GHz to Intel Core 2 Duo T9550 2.66GHz while maintaining the same price of S$3,988.00.

AirPort Extreme Base Station / Time Capsule
The new AirPort Extreme Base Station retailing at S$268.00 and Time Capsule retailing at S$448.00 (500GB) / S$748 (1TB) allows simultaneous dual-band Wi-Fi and guest networking.

Simultaneous dual-band Wi-Fi
For maximum range and compatibility, AirPort Extreme works simultaneously on both the 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands, allowing all the devices on the network to use the most efficient band automatically. And AirPort Extreme uses the latest 802.11n wireless technology so you can enjoy up to five times the performance and up to twice the range of 802.11g wireless networks.

Guest networking
Now you can set up a separate Wi-Fi network with a separate password for your visitors. Simply enable the new guest networking feature, and your guests can use the Internet but can’t access other parts of your private network, such as your computers, printers, and attached hard drives.
