Apple Store Back up with updated Goodies!

When the Apple Store goes down Apple fanboys get excited. Preeminently a tall-tail sign of new products.

Today’s new (or updated) products include the iMac, the Mac Mini and the king of all kings, the Mac Pro.

Apple® today introduced the new Mac® Pro using Intel “Nehalem” Xeon processors and a next-generation system architecture to deliver up to twice the performance of the previous generation system.* The new Mac Pro starts at $2,499 and features the latest graphics technology and an updated interior that makes expansion even easier than before.

From an outside look the front of the Mac Pro now replaces the previous Firewire 400 port with Firewire 800 for two Firewire 800 ports, two USB ports, audio out and the power button.

The inside will look noticeably different to Mac Pro enthusiasts. There is one large memory riser as opposed to two, which can be found in all previous models.

The Mac Pro also comes with both DVI and Mini DisplayPort.

The Mac Mini now packs a dedicated video card, Mini DisplayPort, mini-DVI, five USB ports and Firewire 800.

The iMac also sports the new Mini DisplayPort — officially standard across the Mac lineup. Firewire 800 is also included.

UPDATE: It appears that the new iMac wired keyboard does not include the “num-pad” that can be found on stand-alone versions.
