New Mac Pro, iMac and Mac Mini

Filed under: News — Tags: , — Khaled A. @ 2:06 pm

Last tuesday Apple updated their Mac Pro, iMac and Mac mini machines. Although I really hoped for a price drop for the Mac mini but it’s a due update. The Mac mini hasn’t been updated since August 2007. I expect and hope the iMac and Mac mini to arrive to Apple resellers in Saudi Arabia very soon.

Apple plans Arabic iPod, OS X: “Arabic iPod users are looking forward to the day when Apple finally manages to release an Arabic iPod.
