Apple just announced upgrades to iMac (Intel Core 2 Duo and 24″ screen) and the Mac mini (1.83 GHz Intel Core Duo). Why? Because it’s that time of year for new products and because Apple didn’t want to detract from their “big” (as in really big show) announcements on Sept. 12.
Good strategy. I like their focus. Oh, and BTW, the new iMac looks great!
