Here we go, here we go, here we go.

Apple has taken its online store down ahead of its big event on Thursday, where it is expected to launch a slew of new products, including a radically revamped MacBook Pro and a new iMac.

Visitors to the webiste who try to buy something are greeted with a GIF telling them only that the company has “got something special in store for you,” in multiple languages.

The MacBook Pro is expected to get a massive overhaul, with highlights including a second, touch-sensitive screen that sits above the keyboard in place of the function keys, in addition to a fingerprint reader.

As well as a new iMac, we may also see an improved MacBook Air, and iOS 10.1, the first major update for Apple’s mobile operating system.

The event kicks off at 10AM Pacific Time — or 6PM in the UK. The whole thing is being livestreamed on Apple’s website
