New Apple Remote

AppleRemoteALI for one think its about time that the Apple remote received a bit of a facelift.  While most of the Apple line went from white to Aluminum, the apple remote itself remained white.  Until now.

The play/pause button has been relocated on the remote to the lower right next to the menu button, making it a bit easier to press than the center button on the previous model.  I for one kept accidentally turning down my volume while trying to use the functions of that button.

While functionally the same as its predecessor, the new look to match the MacBook Pro, iMac, and outer edge of the Mac mini is a welcome change.  It is even compatible with all the Apple products that the prior remote is compatible with, so no issues with backwards compatibility.

  • Actually, we never carried the prior version of remote by itself, so I’m not too optimistic on seeing it in our product lineup anytime soon.

  • Will you guys be selling this (I’m guessing yes) and how soon will it be til you guys get it in store.
