Apple WWDC 2012: all the stories
WWDC 2012 – MacBook and Mac Pro hardware refresh
But there was no mention of the 17in MacBook Pro – the big daddy of the line has been discontinued. Perhaps the steadfast efforts of Ultrabooks have pushed Apple to compete on that playing field with more strict rules for portability.
Sneaking out without a mention in the keynote was a refreshed version of the Mac Pro, getting the new Intel treatment in a 12-core i7 packing tower that can manage up to a staggering 64GB of RAM.
WWDC 2012 – Accessories
Apple slipped a couple of new accessories in under the radar, launching a new iPad Smart Case that provides all-round protection for your slate. Also launching at WWDC were new Thunderbolt accessories in the form of a Thunderbolt to Firewire 700 adaptor, and a Firewire to Ethernet adaptor.
