Apple’s about to revamp its lineup of Macs and MacBook laptops, and you can take a front row seat for the action right from home. 

While nothing will be officially confirmed until Apple’s executives take the stage at 1pm ET/10am PT, the company is expected to unveil a slew of new computers for fans to feast their eyes upon. 

If the rumors are correct—and they probably are—Apple will likely release updated iMac and Mac Mini offerings (but the Mac Pro doesn’t appear to be in the works), and the 11-inch MacBook Air may die, while the 13-inch MacBook Air will likely get some upgrades.

But the real star of the show is expected to be the new MacBook Pro, which leaks appear to confirm will come with a fancy touchscreen in place of the row of “F” keys that will include all types of functionality, including TouchID for fingerprint unlocking.

Streaming Apple’s Oct. 27 Mac event is simple—but you’ll need the right browser or device. On your PC, laptop, or iOS device, you’ll need to visit this page using either your Safari browser (Apple devices only) or the Microsoft Edge browser on Windows. (Sorry, Chrome and Firefox users, your browser isn’t supported.)

You can also watch the event on your Apple TV, as long as it’s updated to at least version 6.2 of the Apple TV software.
