New iMac, iLife, iWork, and .Mac

The new iMac

Well, we didn’t see a new sub-notebook, but this morning Apple did announce some cool new stuff at their media event in Cupertino.

iMac
The new (thinner) iMac now more resembles the cinema displays. They’re offered in 20″ and 24″ models. More power, more ports, and a slim new keyboard. Available today. LINK

Keyboard
The super-thin keyboard that comes with the new iMac is also available in wired ($49) and wireless ($79) versions as a stand-alone purchase. Available today. LINK

iLife ’08
Lots of new iPhoto features, completely redesigned iMovie, and updated versions of Garage Band, iWeb, and iDVD. Available today. LINK

iWork ’08
A brand new spreadsheet application called, what else… Numbers. Updated versions of Keynote and Pages. Available today. LINK

.Mac
Cool new ways of sharing your media, storage raised to 10GB, and you can now use your own domain name. Available today. LINK

As usual, Engadget live blogged the whole event, complete with pictures, and a Q&A session afterwards.

During the Q&A, Apple suggested we may see updates to Apple TV sometime soon, and also said the Mac mini line will be updated today as well, but since they didn’t make much mention of it I image it’s just a small speed bump.
