Apple expected to out new desktops, trackpad

Apple this morning has temporarily taken down the online Apple Store ahead of what's expected to be a major update to its desktop line. The company is expected to launch new iMacs and Mac Pros as well as a 27-inch Cinema Display. It may further bring out the Magic Trackpad as an optional input for desktops.

iMacs may receive Core i3 and dual Core i5 processors at the low end, along with faster quad Core i5 and i7 chips. Mac Pros should upgrade to the Xeon 5600 series and get six-core and possibly faster quad-core processors. Faster FireWire, USB 3.0, and faster graphics are all expected with the updates.

The store usually returns with new products shortly after 8:30AM Eastern. Most updates of this sort see the hardware shipping within 24 hours or by the end of the week.

    And new Mac Pros coming, no faster FW or USB

    More cores though, and faster memory.
