Gadgets: 10 best bets for tomorrow's Apple launch event

Apple TV

Another persistent rumor is that Apple may be looking to slay the cable companies by creating some kind of television subscription service. If that's true, then a natural device to carry those subscriptions would be Cupertino's "hobby" the Apple TV. And while they're at it, Apple might want to think about finally dropping a DVR into the set-top box.

iMac Refresh

This one is a little bit out of left field, but there are some relatively fresh rumors that Apple is looking to introduce a 22-inch touchscreen iMac. Again, it might be a little early in the year for an iMac refresh.

MacBook Pro Upgrade

In December, a Spanish-language site uncovered an internal e-mail offering of its Retail Edge program the chance to win two MacBook Pros with new during the month of January. MacRumors says the same e-mail was sent out in the United States and the United Kingdom. But Intel reportedly retracted the e-mail and said it offer HP laptops for the contest instead of MacBooks. Wired is betting this wasn't a misprint, but an accidental information leak, and that we'll be seeing refreshed MacBooks on Wednesday.

Those are our ten points for Apple's event on Wednesday, what are yours?
