Report Claims Apple to Introduce "Absolutely Different" Product By Year's End
According to a report by Japanese website Makotakara, Apple will introduce an "absolutely different" product line by year's end.
According to anonymous source in Asian supplier company, Apple seems to be preparing project to release new Mac line-up which is absolutely different from current products until end of this year.
Though this source does not told in detail, this new Mac line seems to be clearly different products from current ones, so new product name could be given. - Macotakara
Still, the leak begs the question, what in the world could Apple be releasing if an entirely new product line is due to be unveiled?
Could it be the oft rumored Mac Televisions that have been so popular in the rumor mill, or perhaps the much lauded touchscreen iMac that so many have anticipated and would fully realize Apple's efforts to integrate iOS in its desktop OS.
But, this could all be pointless speculation, and just another rumor to sweep under the very large rug at the center of the Apple rumor mill.

'Different' as in something Apple has never done, or 'different' as in something NO ONE has ever done? Hhmmm...

I'm guessing it's the Apple TV. Personally, I don't think the touchscreen iMac would really have a point yet because most people would still be most happy with a physical keyboard. Unless Apple wanted to use the projection laser keyboards that are out there, which could be pretty cool, but I guess we'll see.

A TV from Apple wouldn't really be "absolutely different". It's just taking a Cinema Display and put the Apple TV inside.
It's hard to think what would be such a different product than their current Mac offerings.
Maybe their gonna go with a Mac Pro Mini (for lack of a better word ) A smaller and cheaper tower Mac?

A flying car. A nuclear power plant. The iPad 3. O.o. Or possibly a line of gaming macs to compete with competition.

Would a dedicated iOS games console be a smart move? I can't see them creating an ecosystem to rival even a fraction of what Microsoft, Sony, Nintendo have.

Just a thought.

I could be wrong, Apple do have a good track record of creating new devices.

It could be a simple software update to move some 99.99 dollar apple TVs, I mean do you own one they are awesome!

To be fair, Apple did massively over-hype The Beatles coming to iTunes, so something "absolutely different" could just be something not different at all.
