New hardware for LionPosted: July 20, 2011
Along with the new OS today, Apple released brand new MacBook Airs, Mac minis, and thunderbolt-equipped Cinema displays. The new Airs are easily the biggest story, with massive performance gains and i-series processors. Interestingly, the minis also lost their optical drive. Definitely a sign of things to come.
On a related note, the white MacBook has finally been discontinued. I have mixed feelings about that, since I own the previous generation MacBook, but it’s obviously inferior to the Air. Rumor has it the white laptop is still available for education, but it’s clearly deprecated.
