Apples massive developer conference (WWDC) is only a few days away and with most web blogs posting rumor roundups of what we think will happen I want to hear your opinion.

Here are a few blogs to see what news is out there:

http://www.pocket-lint.com/news/46053/wwdc-2012-rumours-apple-plans

I personally think Apple will focus on games this year, bringing out a `retina` screen would be amazing if your playing a gaming like Assassin’s Creed or a racing game something cool like that. Mountain Lion and iOS 6 is a given as is a developer conference.

So, what are your thoughts, 10 points to anyone who gets it correct :p

This isn’t a prediction but I would love to see some crazy, out of the blue announcement from apple, which nobody was expecting. Like a new product such as a 3DTV plasma with apple TV built in or some features to their current portfolio of products which makes life easier or more enjoyable.

But I do predict that apple will focus more on their current MacBook pro and air models and providing more selection than their extreme ends of products. For example the affordable mac mini and unaffordable (for most people) Mac Pro.

I would like them to keep the optical drive or package their SuperDrive with the new models as I like knowing that software package I have just bought is on a physical disk than ‘in the cloud’. Which I think they may ditch the optical drive to make more space for a SSD or a new features.

Just a few things I would like to see at 2012 WWDC

I just want them to announce the new MBPs, as I want to get one this mid-July.

It will be my first Mac, can’t wait :D

One thing I can say for certain is I will have my debit card ready.

Besides the obvious iOS 6 and Mountain Lion, the new MBPs and MBAs, of course. I’m just hoping my wait was worthwhile.

I really do hope they do something a little different with iOS ala WP 6 ->7. I hate that infernal row of icons that do nothing else but blink back at me infuriatingly. As a connoisseur of almost every computing platform, and owner of multiple Apple products, I hate to say that iOS feels the most dated compared to ICS and WP7 .

Ohhh… and Retina MBAs please. I don’t need a beefy GPU on my machines anymore and I love the Air’s portability and sheer sexiness.

Feels like I have been waiting forever for the new Macbooks to come out :(

You would need a better GPU for the retina screen but, a question for you, do you think theres a need for a retina screen? I get it for games maybe, but movies and other stuff may not look as good.

There’s most likely going to be an (at least minor) update along the whole range of Mac hardware – AppleInsider posted a list of a dozen new parts, and their prices line up perfectly with the current Macs.

I suspect either a full-blown Apple TV (i.e. with a screen etc) or retina on the Macbook Air or Pro’s. It’s been rumored that there’s a 3rd in-between model coming up with retina instead, but I hardly think Apple would insult Jobs like that by breaking his Consumer/Professional-dogma.

Time will have to tell. I’m secretly hopeing for the iPhone 5 as my 2G is due for replacement, but the chances of that happening are extremely small ;) (albeit the leaked parts that have been popping up lately).

That will be a good choice. I have mine for 6 years now, and I still don’t need to change it. Using it when I’m travelling and when I’m lazy in bed.

I don’t see a need for an iPad because of it and the iPhone either. My iPhone is still 3GS, and that keeps me up to speed as well. I hope the 5th gen will make me want to change it. :-)

Had the iPod nano for 5 years also, but Apple issued the replacement batteries, so I got a free iPod nano from the last gen. Didn’t say no to it. :D

I love my stuff while it still works.

Steve Jobs hologram he comes up on stage with his black turtleneck to rap a keynote presentation. He lifts his shirt while rapping bout the new Macbook revealing an amazing six pack with a thug life tattoo on it.
