New Macs

There were several interesting announcements at this morning's Macworld keynote speech by Steve Jobs, but the one of most interest to me is the new MacBook Pro (sounds rather Scottish, doesn't it?). The new professionally-oriented Mac laptop starts at $1999 with a 15.4" screen, 1.67 GHz Intel Core Duo CPU, 512 MB of RAM, a 128 MB ATI Radeon video adapter, and 80 GB 5400 RPM hard disk. Sounds pretty damn sweet to me. A 1.83 GHz version is also available with a 256 MB video adapter.

Too bad I can't afford one. Even if I did have the extra money for one, I'd wait awhile to let Apple work out the inevitable bugs resulting from switching to a new platform.

The new Intel based Macs, including the Intel iMacs, start shipping next month.
