Mac (not Pro) desktop with USB 3.0-Mini DisplayPort combo detailed in patent

Before you get all emotional, remember that this is just part of a patent application:

This looks like a paired down Pro workstation with some of the same characteristics, but with notable exceptions:

  • Rounded edges like a Mini
  • Much smaller in size and shape
  • A new Mini DisplayPort adapter that would combine with USB 3.0 and have a new connector
  • This new adapter would also work with iPads and media players
