Apple server lineup refresh looming

Apple server lineup supply shortage, to refresh?

Apple looks set to refresh its server lineup with news that supplies for its existing products are constrained. 9to5Mac is reporting that retailers are struggling to get new orders for both the Mac mini server as well as the Mac Pro server, with no new shipment date being supplied. If true, June is shaping up as a bigger than usual month for new Macs. There is also an expected Macbook Air refresh enroute, which will likely launch at the same time or just after the launch of Mac OS X Lion.

9to5Mac is also reporting that it is possible that the Mac Pro itself could be redesigned as part of this process. After Apple discontinued its Xserve last year, there has been talk that the current Mac Pro case design, now around 8 years old, could also be redesigned so that the server version can more easily fit into racks.

It is also speculated that if Apple is indeed planning on refreshing the Mac mini server and the Mac Pro server, that it will also deliver a new Mac mini and Mac Pro. In addition to the addition of a Thunderbolt port for both products, the Mac mini would likely see the inclusion of Intel's Core i-series Sandy Bridge processors, along with the Macbook Air line.

    Monitor Refresh

    New Mac Pro's would be very welcomed as well as a monitor refresh. A new 42" HD Apple display would be great. I still much prefer my Apple 30" displays to the newer high-gloss smaller monitors.
