Many Apple fans and enthusiast have been disappointed by the delayed announcement of the iMac and MacBook; during Apple's event, which took place in San Francisco this September, many apple users showed up to the event expecting to witness the launch of iMac and MacBook but that was not the case. Instead, Apple launched several wearable gears and announced on the iPhone 7 highlights. This disappointed the many designers and developers who had shown up at the scene.

This is just one of those Apple events where Apple fans were eagerly anticipating for the big announcement of the much-awaited iMacs and MacBook Pros, which, yet again, were never announced or even talked about during the entire event.

iMac and MacBook Latest News

Despite the delayed announcements from Apple, there are some reports that have been released concerning the MacBook and the iMac too. These reports come shortly after Apple event. According to a statement that was made to Forbes by some trusted sources, the production of the MacBook began in the second quarter of this year. This has led technical analysts to conclude that the timeline is not adequate to facilitate the incorporation of the Kaby Lake processor, hence there is a likelihood that the MacBook will have the Sky Lake processor instead.

At this moment, Apple is striving to straighten their strategy since the arc competitor Microsoft is on toes as well. Rumor has it that the powerful Nvidia graphic card will be integrated with the iMac 2016 edition.

Is iMac Leading the Desktop Pack?

Per data provided by an e-commerce company known as BestBuy, the company had already started preparing for the much-awaited desktop. Among the list of the much-awaited hardware, the company had received a lot of messages from clients requesting to be notified once the iMac is delivered. The iMac is expected to sell at$3,200.

Rumors also claim that the iMac will come packed with the new 5k display; this feature is necessary for individuals considering graphic design.

In the meantime, Microsoft is unleashing its desktop battle to the next level, with the latest Surface AIO.

The Surface AIO

The Surface AIO has been rumored to have a powerful processor of the 7th generation of i7 Kay-Bee Lake processors. Many speculate that the intent of developing the Surface AIO is to have the desktop being used in the living room for various uses.
