Yeah, I heard it. One of my Apple fanatic friends bought it. I thought it sounded pretty good for what it is -- a high-end "alarm clock" speaker system. But it's far cry from audiophile with weak high-end extension and so-so imaging.
Wow, people are actually buying tweeter-less iPod "Hi-Fi"? As another shareholder, any good Apple news is good for me, but I am surprised.
It's 16:10 (1440/900 = 1.6).
Pentium M (part of Centrino platform) is a great mobile CPU. My guess is that this Centrino notebook is running Windows with an assortment of antivirus and antispyware that slows down the computer further. Regarding Core Duo vs. G5, while it may be "only" 20% faster in some instances (and none at some), at other tasks, it is well over 40% faster. Can you play two H.264 1080p movie trailers while burning CD on your iMac G5? If you already have iMac G5, yeah, Core Duo is not...
I want to echo memory sentiment. Please followup after upgrading. In addition "Buy this iMac for only $1449.99 from Amazon.com through February 7th." is wrong. Amazon offers $150 rebate off of $1699.99, or $1549.99. (Nevermind that its rebate fulfillment website is currently broken, but that's another topic.)
MacBook Pro. I don't have any issues with words "Mac" or "Pro", it's "Book" that sounds dated. Like iPod, Apple could've created entirely new name that has nothing to do with notebook. But at the end of the day, I don't care about the name as much as the computer itself. Call it X500 for all I care.
Compared to dinosaur of a phone like your older Sanyo, Moto's OS may be an improvement. But compared to more modern phone OS like Sony Ericsson or Nokia Series 60, Moto's OS is seriously lacking (in terms of usability, features, and cosmetic). Moto OS : Sony Ericsson OS = Windows 3.1 UI : Mac OS X.
Although it is cool looking from physical point of view, its UI is still atrociously bad. I don't understand why the phone is so popular among Mac users. They should care about UI more than typical Windows users.
Most (if not all) candy bar style phones have automatic keypad lock, which automatically locks keypads after certain period of inactivity.
Considering how iMac was updated only few months ago, 100 MHz speed bump can only be considered an unexpected gift. I agree with you on Apple needing to bring exciting features to PowerBook in order distract potential buyers of lethargic CPU speed bump. If I were to let my imaginations run wild (within realistic limits), I think we may see (in addition to possible features highlighted by last AppleInsider PowerBook report) Mighty Mouse-style touch pad (right side of the...
