iMac discounts before Haswell processor update



Great discounts are now offered by retailers on custom iMac configurations. The level of stocks is expected to fall in reparation for the Intel Haswell processor.

For instance, B&H on Wednesday evening slashed the price of 15 different custom iMac configurations by as much as $150, several of which had not previously been discounted from Apple's suggested retail price. Many of those same configurations were previously available from other resellers, but have not been restocked alongside other Macs for several weeks, according to historical data from the Apple Price Guide.

It is also stated that big shopping malls such as Best Buy, Amazon, and MacMall are offering a  $100-$150 discount on standard retail configurations.

Apple to launch graphics card replacement program for iMacs



According to information provided by 9to5Mac, Apple is starting a replacement program for the graphics card used in some mid-2011 iMacs.

Apple has determined that some AMD Radeon HD 6970M video cards used in 27-inch iMac computers with 3.1GHz quad-core Intel Core i5 or 3.4GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 processors may fail, causing the computer’s display to appear distorted, white or blue with vertical lines, or to turn black. iMac computers with affected video cards were sold between May 2011 and October 2012.

In order to get the graphic card replaced the serial number of your iMac should finish with one of the following groups (for example, xxxxxxxxDHJQ):
● DHJQ, DHJW, DL8Q, DNGH, DNJ9, or DMW8
● DPM1, DPM2, DPNV, DNY0, DRVP, DY6F, F610

The video below describes the graphics issue. If you own one of the Macs models mentioned above, the AMD graphics card will be replaced for free for three years from the computer's purchase date. If the card is already replaced at your expense, you may get  refund.

Pegatron revenue upsurges thanks to iPhone production



According to Reuters, Apple supplier Pegatron is likely to enjoy a 50 percent increase in Q3 revenue.  The supplier reaches the figure despite the stable decline of its PC business continuing. The sector responsible for the revenue upsuge is the iPhone. The following announcement was made by Pegatron after the company did not live up o analyst's expectations concerning revenue in Q2.

“We expect revenue in the non-computing segment to grow by 40 to 50 percent in Q3 due to new consumer products. Q4 will also be higher,” said company CEO and President Jason Cheng in an investor conference.

Pegatron is most likely to be responsible for production of the low-budget iPhone 5C – the plastic iPhone. Moreover, Digitimes rumored that it may turn to be the second iPhone 5S supplier, although Foxconn is responsible for the major production. Both handsets are expected to be announced by Apple on 10th September.

Steve Jobs сonsidered leaving Apple pro market



Ken Segall, author of Insanely Simple and the creative director of the Think Different ad campaign says that Steve Jobs considered killing Apple's professional line of products.

According to Segall, Apple is not supporting professional users. Mac Pro hasn't been updated in years as well as Aperture, the 17-inch MacBook Pro has been discontinued and the update Final Cut Pro did not leave up to user's expectations. Thus t seems that Apple will farewell the pro market one day.

I hope you’re sitting down for this, but Steve Jobs did in fact once consider that very option. This was back in the days when iMac had established itself as a global bestseller. During one of the agency’s regular meetings with Steve, he shared that he was considering killing the pro products. His rationale was as you might expect: consumer products have an unlimited upside, while pro products are aimed at a niche market that eats up major resources.
