June 11, 2012  |  Apple, New Products

Outside of WWDC 2012, Apple has quietly updated three of its other products: the Mac Pro, AirPort Express, as well as the Smart Covers for the iPad.

First: Mac Pro

The Mac Pro received a modest spec bump which included a single 3.2 GHz quad-core Xeon processor on the base $2,499 model, which comes paired with 6GB of RAM and a 1TB HDD.  The higher-end model received a pair of 2.4GHz six-core processors which gets 12GB of RAM as a standard and the same 1TB HDD for the $3,799.  The Mac Pro Server also received a modest update.

Second: AirPort Express

The new AirPort Express is a pocket WiFi router that has a reworked design.  It’s got a dual-band 2.4GHz and 5GHz wireless.  It still has the audio-out jack and USB 2.0 port to share your sound or printing and there is an extra Ethernet jack to feed wired devices.  It’s available now with a $99 price tag.

Third: Smart Covers

This other update is a brand new iPad case that features an additional polyurethane hardshell coating for the back of your iPad in short it protects the front and back of your iPad and looks like a Smart Cover + a Back Shell.  It is priced at 49$ and arrives in six different color options which can also be engraved.

Now if they had it in a clear version I would be the first one to buy it! I want a clear option or one where I can upload an image and make one!

  1. I hate the smart covers because the damn thing falls off!

    I think Airport express isn’t that useful and too single minded to Apple, I prefer other options for wireless!

    Don’t think Apple is too keen on the desktop anymore!

    • With this Smart cover it is supposed to stick on entirely so it won’t fall off and as for the Airport Express I think it’s great I’ve heard great things about it and might give it a try!

      Apple will update their desktops but the updates they came out with today were aimed at attacking the ultra books in the market.
