Huge Mac renovations coming too?

John Moe Jun 5, 2012

It looks like it could be a pretty big Worldwide Developers Conference next week even though Apple won’t be debuting a new iPhone or a new iPad or a TV or a stove or a helicopter. Mashable reports that the Mac (a sort of iPhone with a keyboard) will get a big relaunch, possibly with retina display screens just like the iPhone and iPad now have. There are also rumors of a cheaper new MacBook Air, which indicates that Apple is looking to get into a wider swath of the PC market since the Air is already the cheapest Mac.
