New Apple Cinema Displays not until 2009?

735F865F-2194-4479-90F9-BC74BEB45D98.jpgIf it feels like there hasn’t been an updated Cinema Display in years, well that’s because there hasn’t. Not since June 2004 to be exact.
The display that everyone wants, if they can afford it, wont be refreshed (updated) until the Macworld San Francisco 2009 conference which takes place between January 5th-9th, 2009.

I have been holding out buying a new Cinema Display hoping the rumors that have been going around for about two years now were true. The ones stating the new displays would have built in cameras, be bigger and come in black. All hope is not lost if I can only hold out for another 5-6 months.

According to MacRumors:
“MacRumors has heard that Apple is prepping for Cinema Display refreshes for at the Moscone Center. The new Cinema Displays are expected to incorporate LED backlights to fulfill Steve Jobs’ promise that Apple would completely eliminate flourescent-backlit displays. The transition timeframe depended on “how fast the industry [could] transition to LED backlighting for larger displays.”

While LED displays as large as 30″ are commercially available, they still appear to be cost prohibitive with Samsung’s 30″ LED display priced at $4735. We’re uncertain how this price discrepancy with Apple’s current displays will be reconciled.”

My fingers are crossed and checkbook is open!

Apple event in Sept. – New MacBooks, iPods, oh my

6BA3AFC9-D9BF-4F14-9B13-547068B6223F.jpgPiper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster is predicting new Macs and iPods will be introduced at a special event in September.

There is no inside info, press release or smoke signals coming from Apple to confirm this but hey, we love a good Apple rumor!

So Mr. Munster is predicting that Apple will have a redesigned MacBook that might be around the $999 plus a redesigned MacBook Pro. (no price on that one) 
The shuffle and iPod nano will have more storage and the iPod touch could be redesigned and will be cheaper at $199.

Other things seen in the crystal Ball were:

That Touchscreen Mac that everyone wants, wont be out until 2010. (damn)
A smaller Macbook Air will come out in 2009.
