Besides OS X Lion, Apple unleashed several new hardware products
OS X Lion is here and I am already typing this story on the new OS X update. It was not enough for Apple to just release the new OS X 10.7 though. Apple also released the highly anticipated new 2011 MacBook Air. The MacBook Air is twice as fast and features the Thunderbolt port. Mac mini fans also get treated to a new 2011 Mac mini with double the performance and Thunderbolt port.
Apple also released the world's first Thunderbolt Display. With the release of the new MacBook Air line Apple has killed the white MacBook. Apple apparently decided to not update the MacBook and have the basic MacBook Air priced at $999 take its place.
Apple had a record quarter and OS X Lion and the new hardware releases have to fuel the coming quarter until Apple releases the next big wave of updates in Fall with iOS 5 and iCloud. The iPhone 5 launch in fall is also seen as a bigger event than the OS X Lion launch party today.
Below are links to the details about each new Apple product release.
All new Apple releases are now on sale in the Apple Store.
