    Pricing on a 4K display? Schiller says $3K. Guess he doesn't shop Monoprice.
  • Shara Tibken 10/16/2014 6:14:05 PM
    8Gb of memory
  • Shara Tibken 10/16/2014 6:14:08 PM
    It ships today
  • Tim Stevens 10/16/2014 6:14:15 PM
  • dan.ackerman 10/16/2014 6:14:39 PM
    Ships today, at $2,499. But old non-5K versions still available, including the recent 21.5-inch, which is essentially a MacBook built into an iMac case.
  • Shara Tibken 10/16/2014 6:14:40 PM
    Schiller: Can't wait for you to see it and experience the incredible images
  • Carrie Mihalcik 10/16/2014 6:14:44 PM
  • Shara Tibken 10/16/2014 6:14:48 PM
    Schiller: We have one other small update today. Mac Mini
  • dan.ackerman 10/16/2014 6:14:53 PM
    Ok, I might be the only guy more interested in the Mac Mini.
  • Tim Stevens 10/16/2014 6:15:04 PM
  • Shara Tibken 10/16/2014 6:15:22 PM
    Schiiller: Updated with faster processors, fourth generaiton Intel Core processors, Intel Iris and HD graphics 5000, 802.11 ac Wi-Fi, two Thunderbolt ports, world's most effecient
  • dan.ackerman 10/16/2014 6:15:23 PM
    Haswell CPU and integrated GPU, 802.11ac, that's about it.
  • Shara Tibken 10/16/2014 6:15:31 PM
    Previously started at $599. New one starts at $499
  • Tim Stevens 10/16/2014 6:15:41 PM
  • dan.ackerman 10/16/2014 6:15:51 PM
    For $499, the least-expensive way to get an OS X machine.
  • Shara Tibken 10/16/2014 6:15:56 PM
    Mac Mini hadn't been refreshed for two years. The device is Apple's most affordable computer, and it has a cult following. An owner must also purchase a display, keyboard, and mouse for the device to work, and the most expensive version of the box also works as an OS X server.
  • Tim Stevens 10/16/2014 6:16:00 PM
  • Shara Tibken 10/16/2014 6:16:00 PM
    Cook is back up
  • dan.ackerman 10/16/2014 6:16:03 PM
    Lots of cult Mac Mini fans out there.
  • Shara Tibken 10/16/2014 6:16:13 PM
    Cook: This is the strongest lineup of products Apple has ever had. We believe each one of these plays a very imporatnt role
  • Shara Tibken 10/16/2014 6:16:22 PM
    Cook: People need different types of etechnology for the way they live their lives
  • Tim Stevens 10/16/2014 6:16:29 PM
  • Shara Tibken 10/16/2014 6:16:34 PM
    Cook: Many of us and many of our customers use more than one of our products every day.
  • Shara Tibken 10/16/2014 6:16:55 PM
    Cook: Soemtimes you want to sit at your desk in front of a huge immersive screen. .. Made much better today with Retina 5K Disiplay for iMac
  • Carrie Mihalcik 10/16/2014 6:16:56 PM
    Apple iPad Mini 3 arrives with Touch ID cnet.com
  • Tim Stevens 10/16/2014 6:17:01 PM
  • Shara Tibken 10/16/2014 6:17:10 PM
    Cook: Make notebooks even better this year with MacBook Air and MacBook Pro
  • Shara Tibken 10/16/2014 6:17:19 PM
    Cook: iPad Air 2, more powerful and incredibly thin
  • dan.ackerman 10/16/2014 6:17:25 PM
    Just as expected, new higher-res iMac and slightly updated Mac Mini. No new physical design for either.
  • dan.ackerman 10/16/2014 6:17:39 PM
    While iPad Air 2 gets a slight, slight design tweak.
  • Tim Stevens 10/16/2014 6:17:48 PM
  • dan.ackerman 10/16/2014 6:17:52 PM
    Will we get some Apple Watch release date news?
  • Shara Tibken 10/16/2014 6:18:02 PM
    Cook: This incredible line of products and the ecosystem that support them is something only Apple can create.
  • Shara Tibken 10/16/2014 6:18:14 PM
    Cook: They're designed to be incredible products individually but they're also designed to work together seamlessly.
  • Tim Stevens 10/16/2014 6:18:27 PM
  • Shara Tibken 10/16/2014 6:18:29 PM
    Cook: Because we create the software and hardware, we can do something no one else can do
  • Shara Tibken 10/16/2014 6:18:34 PM
    Cook: This is our vision of personal technology.
  • Shara Tibken 10/16/2014 6:18:38 PM
    Cook: And we are just getting started
  • Shara Tibken 10/16/2014 6:18:54 PM
    Cook: I'd like to thank all the teams at Apple who have worked so hard. What you've seen here is multi years of work
  • dan.ackerman 10/16/2014 6:19:00 PM
    That hardware-plus-software ecosystem is definitely a selling point for Apple vs other platforms -- we saw MS try to so some of this recently with Win 8/Surface, etc.

  • dan.ackerman 10/16/2014 6:19:30 PM
    Would have been nice to see a slimmer Mac Mini with Intel Core M. Guess not.
  • Shara Tibken 10/16/2014 6:19:33 PM
    Cook: I want to invite all of you to come across the hall to get your eyes on this Retina 5K display
  • dan.ackerman 10/16/2014 6:19:52 PM
    Sounds like we're moving to the demo room shortly, so stay tuned for hands-on updates.
  • Shara Tibken 10/16/2014 6:19:53 PM
    Cook: And to hold the iPad Air and see how thin and powerful it is. Also have a station set up to try Apple Pay. You can be among the first to buy something with it.
  • Shara Tibken 10/16/2014 6:19:55 PM
    Alright, that's it
