iPad mini (7.9-inch)

Apple’s iPad is the undisputed king of tablets. But it is not a competition to Amazon’s Kindle Fire, and Google Nexus 7. That is because they have 7-inch screens as opposed to the traditional iPad’s 9.7-inches. Seeing how the 7-inchers are trying to eat its lunch, Apple came up with the iPad mini. The mini has a 7.9-inch screen with the screen resolution of 1024 by 768 which is the same as the iPad 2. It also shares its dual-core A5 chip with the iPad 2, but has a 1.2 megapixel front Facetime camera, a 5-megapixel back iSight camera that is capable of recording 1080p HD video. It borrows Apple’s latest lightning connector for charging and runs on iOS 6. Available in black and white with matching backs just like the iPhone 5, the iPad mini is an exquisitely designed ‘budget’ tablet.

MacBook Pro with Retina Display (13-inch)

Few months after bringing the gorgeous retina screen to the 15-inch MacBook Pro, Apple debuted the screen on its 13-inch Macbook Pro. The 13-inch screen has a resolution of 2560X1600 which with 4 million pixels is way more than a HDTV and is second only to the resolution of the 15-incher. Apple also boasts of a 29 per cent higher contrast, and 75 per cent less glare than the previous MacBook Pro models making this the most advanced display of any 13-inch laptop. You get the choice of Intel Core i5 or i7 processors, with speeds ranging from 2.9GHz to 3.6GHz.

iMac (21.5-inch, 27-inch)

The iMac used to be the best desktop on the market. With its latest iteration, the iMac has become the most advanced and the best designed desktop computer ever made. If you look at the new iMac from the front, you won’t see much of a difference. Look at it from the sides and it is an altogether different story; it is pencil thin with a 5mm edge. Jony Ive’s design marvel does not stop at great looks, but also packs some great guts with quad-core i5 processors ranging from 2.7GHz to 3.2GHz, NVIDIA GeForce graphics processors for great gaming experience. Added to these Apple is introducing a new technology called Fusion Drive that fuses hard drives up to 3TB with flash storage up to 768GB for optimum storage and optimum speed. Keeping up with its recent products, Apple did away with the DVD drive to make the iMac super thin.
