Rumor: Apple to intro new Macs, Magic Mouse on Tuesday

updated 11:15 pm EDT, Mon October 19, 2009

Slew of products said to be launched Tuesday

Daring Fireball blogger John Gruber and "Fake Steve Jobs" blogger Dan Lyons both suggest Apple is ready to launch new products tomorrow. Lyons claims there is "something brewing" for a news announcement tomorrow, although he declined to provide specific details on the products.

"Gruber doesn't know about it, but the people we care about are being briefed in advance," says Lyons. "Stay close to your Mac or iPhone, and have your credit card ready."

In a retort aimed at Fake Steve Jobs, Gruber outlined a list devices that "Apple is set to release tomorrow morning." Most of the products have been pointed to in earlier rumors, such as a Multi-Touch "Magic Mouse" along with redesigned iMacs and plastic MacBooks. Gruber also mentions a Mult-Touch trackpad for desktop Macs, although he qualifies the item as the "I'm-Not-Sure-I-Really-Believe-It-Myself" wildcard rumor.

A revamped Mighty Mouse and Bluetooth keyboard recently surfaced in FCC filings, although the documents lacked comprehensive details on the changes. Sources disagree regarding the possibility of Blu-ray support with the next iMacs. Others suggest the all-in-ones could get a thinner form-factor or a new chipset.

The authenticity of the recent rumors has yet to be confirmed, although Gruber's sources previously gathered accurate information regarding iPhone details.

    Not interested in Blu-ray...

    but I'd still like to see a quad-core iMac only because some of those Windows PCs have them. I don't even know if they're much better than a fast dual-core, but they sound cool and they'd likely run cool. I know it isn't going to happen since most rumors point to faster dual-cores. Most likely a 3.2 GHz iMac. I can live with that if prices remain about the same or drop slightly.

    Not interested in iMac

    I'm not interested in the all-in-one iMac. Too restrictive for the cost.

    And now Apple is replacing it's hokey-sounding 'Mighty Mouse' with an even stupider sounding "Magic Mouse'? This, to go along with their "Super Drives" (and exactly why are they 'super' again?) and Airport Extremes.

    Someone at Apple needs to get the kiddy thesaurus away from the product naming division. Or get someone who isn't still living in the 60s, 70s, or 80s.

    kiddy thesaurus...

    I'm with Testy on this one. There is one exception, however. I think it is safe to refer to Apple's "MEGA-Profits" that demonstrate how happy they are to bilk their customers even during a time of recession. We could probably put this down to Avaricious Tim and Pleonexic Phil !!!! Hmmm.... the thesaurus is fun!

    K84 Best BTR

    Just so that I can be 20 seconds ahead of everyone else. K84: 84 Key Keyboard and BTR: Bluetooth Remote. So, another wireless keyboard?

    no, no, no

    Not "Mega-profits". Super-profits. Or "Boss Profits". Or their 'bees-knees profits'.

    h***, I think bitchin' profits would be too current for them.

    (and it's 12 o'clock and the store is down. Must be some XTreme upgrades coming!).

    uncensored

    It seems that the PC gremlins are censoring just about everything on MacNN. What can I say that won't be asterixed? Oh yes, I was right about the keyboard! :-)
