New iMacs, iWork 08 and iLife 08: short intro

I’ve just attended Apple’s press briefing for the new iMacs, iLife and iWork ’08.

Will post soon pictures, first hands-on impressions on both hardware and software.

look really pretty, screen displays are gorgeous.
Still have to try the new keyboard, low-profiled and featuring MacBook-style keys.

iLife ’08 shows some pretty cool new features, iMovie has been completely redesigned while iPhoto now tends to be a Web 2.0 tool aimed at .Mac Web Gallery photo publishing and sharing (videos too).

iWork ’08
updates Keynote and Pages but, most important, introduces Numbers which, of course, is the spreadsheet fellow of the band.
Numbers is really cool and shows off some nifty features most *xcel users really would love…

More on all of these when I’m back to the base, up and testing!
