Live Updates: Apple Goes Back to Mac - New Air?

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 7 comments

Apple's been all about its iOS devices the past while. Is this the time that Apple gets back behind the original computing product?

10:00 - Steve hits the stage and introduces Tim Cook to start the Back to the Mac event.

10:04 - Tim Cook is talking about how well the Mac still doing. How it's growing faster than the PC and the rest of the industry. 600,000 registered Mac developers per month, with 30,000 new ones per month. One of the recent new ones was Valve Software.

10:06 - Yay, the Mac is getting great games like Half-Life! (But where is our Episode 3?)

10:07 - 318 Apple stores. Lots of new stores selling people to who have never used a Mac before. Half of the Mac buyers are new to the platform.

10:10 - Steve is back on stage talking about iLife.

    Of course the Mac is growing faster than the PC because everybody who wants a computer and has half a brain pretty much already has a PC, so there's not much of a market left. Those without a brain are lapping up iPads.

    Now, compare Mac purchases to PC component upgrades and then we'll see where the computing spend really is.

    iPads are awesome if you apply them correctly - I've used one for demonstrating project concepts, approval videos, design work and initial website builds.

    BUT I can do that with any tablet so it's not something only the "magical" iPad can do. Doing it on a tablet instead of a laptop has an extra "wow" factor which is always important when dealing with clients.
