Apple’s October 23 iPad And Mac Event Roundup

In case you missed it, here’s a roundup of the news and events from Apple’s October 23rd media event where Apple unveiled the new 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro, stunningly thin iMacs, new Mac minis, the eagerly anticipated iPad mini and the 4th generation iPad.
