🥇 Regular Picks

HostPickScore
Stephen Regular "Apple announces a new Apple Silicon system-on-a-chip" 1
Myke Regular "The 13" MacBook Pro is redesigned" 0
Federico Regular "The MacBook Air is not updated at this event" 1
Stephen Regular "The M1 iMac receives an update" 1
Myke Regular "The names of the colours of the iMac are unchanged" 1
  • Cleverly worded so that if the iMac isn't touched, the pick is still correct, but Federico's questioning of whether a change in hue counts causes Myke to water it down to just names. At the time of the pick, the colors were "Blue, Green, Pink, Silver, Yellow, Orange, Purple".
Federico Regular "The visual design of the 14" and 16" MacBook Pro is unchanged" 1
  • The word "visual" was added, but it's agreed that we'll know it when we see it.

⚠️ Risky Picks

HostPickScore
Stephen Risky "Apple unveils an iMac Pro" -1
  • In Stephen's mind, this requires a 27" or larger screen, and a Pro/Pro Max caliber processor at least.
Myke Risky "Apple unveils a new Studio Display Pro that is larger than the regular Studio Display and features a new screen technology than the smaller model" -1
  • Myke wavers on the "larger" clause but chooses to keep the pick unmodified when Stephen thinks it's important to the riskiness of the pick.
Federico Risky "Apple introduces a new desktop keyboard and/or trackpad that supports connecting to multiple devices at once. They also support USB-C connections now" -1
