Chris Seibold argues that Apple is “neglecting” the Mac, pointing to how long it’s been since the Mini, iMac, and Mac Pros have been updated as proof. Here’s the thing, though: Mac sales are higher now than ever. The desktop models are overdue for updates, though, and Apple’s recent quarterly unit sale numbers reflect this. I think it’s simply the case that Apple is aiming for a roughly annual schedule for all their hardware products — Mac, iPod, iPhone. No reason to get your pants in a knot. I expect the new Mac Mini and speed-bump iMacs and Mac Pros in March, if not sooner.
