New filings with the Eurasian Economic Commision’s product registry spotted by French site Consomac.fr confirm the onslaught of desktop and laptop updates predicted by Apple wunderanalyst Ming-Chi Kuo for the company’s October 30 event in New York.
The product filings include references to new models of the iMac and, more importantly, the Mac Mini, a popular low cost computer that hasn’t seen any updates since October 16, 2014 — more than four years ago.
Apple launched the iMac Pro, a $4,999 high-end workstation with Intel Xeon processors and AMD Radeon graphics, though it's standard iMac model is just about due for a refresh -- potentially with Intel's 9th Gen processors.
The other reference is a laptop product. Based on his previous predictions, Kuo is sure that this computer will be a replacement to the MacBook Air, with a 13-inch Retina display to replace the fuzzy low-res display on the old Air.
Only one week and we will see if these two products will return from the death or not.
