The Apple Store is down; new hardware imminent?

We're not long out from the big WWDC 2013 keynote kicking off at Moscone West in San Francisco, and the Apple Store is down. In just about every language imaginable, this message is greeting visitors to the online Apple Store right about now. Customarily, the Apple Store goes down right before new products are added to it. So, does this mean that some new hardware is imminent?

There has been speculation leading up to WWDC that we'll be treated to some new Mac hardware powered by Intel's new Haswell chips, be that a refresh of the MacBook Pro line, the MacBook Air, both, neither, who really knows. It could, maybe, just be routine maintenance on the store with a massive side order of coincidence. Guess we'll find out soon enough! What are you hoping to see when it comes back online?
