With all the rumors on the iPad mini – which is set to be the star of Apple’s October 23 event – finally starting to settle down, rumors concerning the much anticipated update to the iMac and Mac mini models are beginning to emerge. Up to now, pricing of the devices has received little coverage, but today, information has hit the net stating that the next generation of desktop Macs will retain the same or a similar price point to the models currently available.
It has also been stated that the next-gen devices probably won’t feature a Retina display, something that was heavily rumored after Apple’s announcement of the 15 inch Retina MacBook Pro, but since the price for such a huge Retina display would be so great, it is unlikely that Apple will include such a feature.
It is expected that the Mac mini will keep the same pricing across all models, at $599, $799 for the two standard models and $999 for the server model. The base model 21.5 and 27 inch iMacs aren’t expected to receive a change in price, but the top end models could have a slightly cheaper price point in some countries.
