Apple Event Wishlist (16/10/2014)

A bit last minute (the event starts in 20 mins), but here’s my wishlist for todays Apple event.

iPads

I don’t care about the iPads much. I enjoy my iPad mini (i use it for traveling) but its not a device i am keen to upgrade. It works well.

However, there are few things i would like to see. The main one is better pricing for the higher storage models. I am looking to buy my parents an iPad for Christmas this year. However, even a 32gb iPad is a little small to last the 3-4 years needed. So a drop in pricing would be great.

I would REALLY love for Apple to include mini displayport so i can use the iPad on my cinema display, but that is just wishful thinking.

Retina iMac

I’m not in the market for a Retina iMac but i the retina rollout is an interesting thing. Retina on the desktop is something I would love to try.. If they developed a retina iMac thats cool, if it supports Target Display that would be even better. Perhaps it could be achieved with a pair of Thunderbolt ports, who knows.

Mac Mini

I love the Mac Mini platform, and if they brought something out it would have to consider it. I did just by a Macbook and sell my Mac Mini, but thats more to do with the price of the old Mac Mini than its form or functionality. (£1000 of Mac mini was overkill!)

If Apple brought out something with the same specs as the MacBook Air and an SSD, for less than £350 I would be super tempted. I even wrote an imaginary review for such a beast.

New Apple TV.

An Apple TV update would be nice. I have a Apple TV 2 which does not do 1080p, but the current Apple TV is WAY to long in the tooth to be a worthwhile update. If it worked as a basic games console, that would also rock.

If the Mac Mini above came with an equivalent to Frontrow, then i would be extremely happy.

So thats it, my wish list for this evenings event.
