iPad Mini

Apple finally announced the iPad Mini today at an event at the California Theatre in San Jose, Calif.

The smaller iPad packs a 7.9-inch screen with 1024 x 768 resolution display. The device is 23 percent thinner than its larger counterpart at 7.2 mm thin and is 53 percent lighter at 0.68 pounds.

The device has a dual-core A5 chip, 5MP iSight camera and a front-facing FaceTime HD camera. It supports both WiFi and LTE. Of course, it will have a Lightning connector.

Apple says the device will have 10 hours of battery life.

The company compared the device to the Nexus 7 on stage. The screen has a 35 percent larger display. When comparing the size of web pages without the tabs and other extra buttons, the iPad Mini’s screen is 49 percent larger in portrait mode and two-thirds bigger in landscape mode.

The iPad Mini will start at $329 for a 16 GB WiFi-only version. A WiFi plus cellular version will cost $459. A 32 GB iPad Mini will cost $429 for WiFi and $559 with cellular capabilities. A 64 GB version will be available for $529 with WiFi and $659 with cellular.

[adsense250itp]Apple will begin shipping the WiFi-only models of the iPad Mini on Nov. 2 with the other versions releasing 2 weeks later. Pre-orders will begin on Friday.

In a surprise move, the company announced a new 4th generation iPad just six months after the release of the last iPad.

The new iPad comes with the A6X processor, which gives it twice the processing power of the previous version of the iPad. It boasts 10 hours of battery life with a Lightning connector and FaceTime HD camera. It will start at $499, the same as the current iPad.

Apple also showed off a much-needed redesign and refresh of the iMac.

The extremely thin iMac weighs only 8 pounds and has a 5 mm edge, making it 80 percent thinner than previous generations.

It contains a new Apple Fusion drive, which mixes a 128 GB Flash memory drive with a 1 TB or 3 TB standard hard drive.

The computer starts at $1,299 for a 21.5-inch model and $1,799 for a 27-inch version. The smaller iMac starts shipping in November while the larger display iMac ships in December.

A MacBook Pro with a 13-inch Retina display was also unveiled at the event.

It has a dual-core i5 or i7 Ivy Bridge processor, 768 GB of Flash memory, 8 GB of RAM, Intel HD 4000 HD Graphics, and comes with 7 hours of battery life.

The Retina display packs 2560 x 1600 pixels.

The more affordable MacBook Pro starts at $1,699 for 2.5Ghz dual-core i5 processor with 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of memory.

Apple also debuted a new Mac Mini with three USB 3 ports, dual or quad-core i5 or i7 Ivy Bridge, Intel HD Graphics 4000, and up to 16 GB of RAM.

The redesigned Mac Mini also has a Gigabit Ethernet port, HDMI, Thunderbolt, and an SD Card slot.

A 2.5Ghz computer with 4 GB of RAM and 500 GB hard drive starts at $599. A server edition is also available for $999. Apple will begin shipping the new Mac Mini today.
