Get ready, Macheads. Apple has just announced a new press event to be held next week at its Cupertino, California campus entitled, "Back to the Mac." Let the theories and rumors begin.

Set to start at 10AM PT sharp, it's almost certain that we'll be seeing something new about the Mac OS X operating system. And as cleverly spotted by our sister site CNET, that version could possibly be dubbed "Lion," following in the grand tradition of naming OS editions after big cats (i.e. Panther, Tiger, Leopard, Snow Leopard).

There's also the potential for some other stuff to be addressed too, namely the previously-rumored revamped MacBook Air and the constantly hoped-for iPhone for Verizon.

It's unlikely that we'll see more new computers this year as the MacBook and MacBook Pro were updated in the spring, not to mention the iMac and Mac Pro overhauls during the summer. A second-gen iPad announced before the end of the year seems a bit unlikely - unless Apple really wants to throw the holiday shopping season for a loop.

What do you think (or hope) will be announced on Wednesday, October 20?
