    I just bought a Dell laptop but excited to see what Apple does with its MacBook anyways.

    It won't be the headliner, but will the airport series get an update? Some variety of mesh networking and the ability to airplay to multiple devices from iOS?

    CNET's Shara Tibken (@sharatibken), Dan Ackerman (@danackerman) and James Martin (@Jamesco) are on the ground. They'll be here in a bit to bring you news and views from the event.

    MacBook Pro have to be cheaper to be a competitive option for students.
  • HamzaJJ 10/27/2016 4:14:29 PM
    It's my birthday today, hope Apple introduces something new and revolutionary.

    Kind of leading? Apple has abandoned the creative space

    I'm excited about the potential upgrades to the MacBook Pro. My model is late 2011, and I've been waiting to upgrade. That said, I'm concerned about the rumors regarding the elimination of the current mix of ports in favor of USB-C ports only. Nothing I own needs a USB-C port, whereas my iPhone, iPad, iPod and iPod shuffle (all Apple products) require the old USB port and I make good use of the SD-cart slot because of my DSLR camera. The prospect of losing all these useful things and instead having ports I don't (yet) have any use for is frustrating.

    Hoping for some good MacBookstuff but also an apple home of some kind
  • Kenneth Rhem 10/27/2016 4:24:45 PM
    @Andrew How soon before all of your devices get replaced by things that utilize USB-c?
  • cool 10/27/2016 4:25:52 PM
    My dad was born when apple was founded!!
  • Carrie Mihalcik 10/27/2016 4:31:27 PM
    @George Argyrou Apple's event is scheduled to start at 10 a.m. PT.
  • nickruss 10/27/2016 4:31:31 PM
    Macbook Pros with SD card slots and USB ports are available on the Apple Store UK - get one while you can!
  • jarrett 10/27/2016 4:31:46 PM
    seriously yeah why is it only on the 6s page that's weird
  • HamzaJJ 10/27/2016 4:31:52 PM
    Hope there is some kind of iPad news even if they're not ready.
  • Joey 10/27/2016 4:37:27 PM
    keep your ear phones, I want the new ones.
  • HamzaJJ 10/27/2016 4:38:34 PM
    No escape key is the no headphone jack. Prepare for parody videos.
  • George Argyrou 10/27/2016 4:38:41 PM
    @CarrieMihalcik how long from now roughly?
  • Carrie Mihalcik 10/27/2016 4:39:09 PM
    @George Argyrou In about 20 minutes. 
  • Oli Almeida 10/27/2016 4:43:38 PM

    I'm not at all interested in a touchscreen for a laptop. Don't want the fingerprints all over my screen.

    Hey everyone. We're just getting set up in the room.
  • Shara Tibken 10/27/2016 4:55:33 PM
    We're in Town Hall, which is the auditorium on Apple's campus in Cupertino, California.
  • Carrie Mihalcik 10/27/2016 4:55:36 PM
    Heads up, comments will shut down shortly.
  • Shara Tibken 10/27/2016 4:56:07 PM
    The last event here was "probably the last event" held at Town Hall, but here we are! Apple is building a massive new spaceship campus that should open in the coming months.
