The star of Apple's October 23 event will surely be the iPad Mini, but it won't be the only device unveiled that day. Apple tends to unveil more than one product at once, and if the reliable Apple-centric website 9to5Mac is correct, then we will be seeing a new line of iMacs and Mac Minis that should be priced the same as their current predecessors.
Currently, iMacs are priced at $1199, $1499, $1699, and $1999. The new iMacs should all fall into those price slots, and 9to5Mac is even reporting that the top-end 27-inch and 21.7-inch models might even be cheaper in some countries.
The two standard models of the Mac Minis currently cost $599 and $799, with the OS X server version running $999. The new Mac Minis are expected to replace all three.
The newer models will feature newer, faster chipsets and processors, as well as more peripheral support, including USB 3.0. According to 9to5Mac, both the new iMacs and Mac Minis will also feature double the built-order RAM configurations, meaning the new iMacs should go up to 32GB and the new Mac Minis up to 16GB. This will be the first time the Apple Mac Mini will be able to hit 16GB of RAM.
Sadly, the newer iMacs look like they won't be having Apple's Retina display. Apple might introduce a Retina iMac in the future, but expect it to be priced at a higher price point than the current price range for iMacs.
A 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro is also expected to make an appearance alongside the new iMac, Mac Mini, and iPad Mini.
