Now's the time to finally upgrade that ageing iMac sitting on your desk — because this morning Apple quietly announced an upgraded version of the popular 21.5-inch version featuring faster RAM, a beefier processor, improved graphics hardware, and a vastly-improved 4K display.

The MacBook Air is a positively wonderful computer. One of the best! Its design and build-quality are unrivalled and oft-imitated. It pioneered the ultra-super-slim space. But by today's standards its screen is seriously lacking. And there doesn't seem to be much relief in sight.
As predicted last week, Apple will officially reveal the next iPads to the world on October 16. Invitations have just been sent out, with Apple's tradition of a coy, hint-y tagline. This time: "It's been way too long."
9to5Mac reports that Apple is in the late stages of testing new iMacs that have higher resolution displays. We could reportedly see the new Macs at an event in the next couple of weeks.
Apple's brand-spanking-new OS X Yosemite seems to point to a future where iMacs are equipped with retina displays. As MacRumors discovered via a French developer forum, the preview version of OS X Yosemite includes display settings that correlate to a 27-inch retina display. Desktop users, prepare for a crystal clear display.
Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities has released predictions about Apple's future laptop plans. Most notably he is forecasting that a 12-inch MacBook with a retina display will be announced in mid-2014, and that it will have a redesigned clamshell that is thinner and lighter than the current MacBook Airs.
Rumours have been swirling which suggest that Apple is readying a new iPad mini with Retina display. Now, though, Reuters reports that supplies will be severely limited when the new tablet goes on sale.
Until now, Chromebooks had not been much more than glorified netbooks; underpowered curios best suited for technological novices. The 13-inch, touchscreen, retina-displayed, full-powered Chromebook Pixel — once a thing of myth — appears to be anything but. And it should be enough to make Apple very, very nervous.
Google looks to be doing with its Chromebook laptops what it did with tablets and smartphones in the Nexus program: taking it in-house and making it better. That is if a new video purporting to be from Google is to be believed saying the company is making a crazy, high-resolution Chromebook for us all.
You know, I had almost forgotten about iTunes 11. Apple promised to overhaul the way we use its jukebox software months ago, and we haven't heard a peep about it since then. A leaked email, purportedly from Apple, points to Cupertino shipping the new software in a few short days.
The biggest beef that people will have with the iPad Mini (other than price, that is) is that it doesn't come with a pixel dense Retina Display. It's the only new iOS device — iPad 4, iPhone 5, iPod Touch — that doesn't have one. But it turns out, its screen is still much better than the iPad 2 because its pixels are smaller.
