Apple Event on October 20th: Lion?

So the blogosphere is rife with news about the upcoming Apple event on October 20th. The indication is that Apple is finally getting around to looking at their computers again after some considerable time showing interest in only the mobile platform and perhaps a little to AppleTV. Some would say "about time".

The above image was posted on engadget as evidence of what's coming. And, of course, with Apple there's no news so it's time for speculation.

What's old and really needs updating?

My guesses (and unlike others that might hint to leeks, I'll admit that these are guesses) are:

  • a new OS called Lion (okay, that's probably an easy one)
  • hardware update to the desktop line (been too long - but I bet there's still no blu-ray)
  • a new version of iLife and perhaps 
  • some attention paid to their professional suite (it's been far too long).

Come back in a week to see how I did. What are your predictions?
