mac_lineup

Japanese site Macotakara reports that Apple may be planning on unveiling an all new Mac that is “absolutely different from current products” and potentially set for introduction by the end of the year. The site also claims that  the product will be so different from current product lines that it will indeed be given a new name.

According to anonymous source in Asian supplier company, Apple seems to be preparing project to release new Mac line-up which is absolutely different from current products until end of this year.

Though this source does not told in detail, this new Mac line seems to be clearly different products from current ones, so new product name could be given.
