Apple: No New Macs Under The Christmas Tree

"Our holiday lineup is set," Apple spokesman Bill Evans told Macworld.

The buzzkill came amid of Internet rumors that on Nov. 10 Apple was set to unveil revamped and refreshed iMacs and Mac Minis as well as an update for its desktop products.

The Macs were rumored to feature upgraded chipsets and DisplayPorts, which lets users connect an external display or projector using an adapter. The new MacBook, MacBook Pro and MacBook Air already come with a Mini DisplayPort.

Apple launched the Mac Mini three years ago but has let it languish while it concentrated its efforts on the more popular iMac and MacBooks. Cupertino, Calif.-based Apple hasn't updated the Mac Mini since last year, leading some Apple watchers to speculate that the company will kill the computer.

Last month, Gizmodo reported that two major European retailers can't order the Mac Minis anymore, and "they have been told by Apple to expect no more of it."

In October, Apple launched its new family of MacBooks and said chip maker Nvidia will provide GeForce 9400M motherboard graphics for all of the new MacBooks, as well as discrete graphics for two 15-inch MacBook Pros. The older, 17-inch MacBook Pro is the only one in the current lineup with Intel's integrated graphics chipset, according to Apple. The company's Mac Mini has not been updated since last year.
