Apple tells resellers 'make room for more iPads this September'

Deadline of September 12 to complete the work, hints that the new iPad mini could launch soon.

Apple has told its authorised resellers in Europe to dedicate more floor space to the iPad. The company has told its Apple Authorised Resellers that they have a deadline of September 12 to complete the work, hinting that the new iPad mini could launch soon.

The September 12 deadline has lead to speculation that the iPad mini may arrive in September, alongside the new iPhone. Other reports have suggested a launch of the iPad mini in October, however.

Resellers have also told MacRumors that Mac Pro and Mac mini desktop Macs are being removed from stores and iPod displays are being trimmed back.

The changes have been rolled out over the past three months and are thought to better reflect the revenue share that the iPad brings in.

New reports suggest that the widely speculated iPad mini will look like a big iPod touch, with thin side bezels, separate volume buttons and a microphone on the back.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
