There’s nothing an Apple fan loves more than a yellow sticky note that reads “We’ll be back sson” and following a massive flurry of rumors, Apple has closed its online store this morning in the US and a variety of other countries. Countless fingers are crossed as several new part numbers had been discovered last night, allegedly covering refreshed iMac and Mac Mini models. What’s more, a new Time Capsule and AirPort Extreme were recently seen passing through the FCC which of course leads us to believe we’re in for more than just new computers this morning. So much for that March 24th event — it looks like Apple is as anxious to push out its refreshed gear as Mac users are to shell out cash for it. What are we most excited about? A potential end to the seemingly infinite speculation and rehashing surrounding the iMac and Mac Mini refreshes. Please Apple, get it over with already.
