I’ve had a new 15-inch MacBook Pro for about a day, and a 27-inch iMac is en route to my house as we speak. As such, I’m not currently in a position to post a “review” of either system. But I can tell you at least a few things about the surprisingly comprehensive Mac refresh that Apple dropped on us this week at this year’s WorldWide Developers Conference.

What follows is a list of collected minutiae about the half-dozen different Macs I got to handle at the conference. This list is gleaned from conversations with Apple as well as my own observations in the limited amount of time I’ve had to study the devices. Based on the questions I’ve gotten about the Macs so far, this should hopefully satisfy your curiosity while I crank away on more comprehensive reviews.
