Still 2 hours 10 minutes left to the release of Leopard. Let's wait and see whether or not any new hardware will be announced then.
Not before Intel release a desktop chipset supporting 64GB of ram.
Plausible announcements before MWSF include: - Mac Nano to replace Mac Mini - Mac Pro speedbump based on Penryn - MacBook speedbump based on Crestline - higher res ACDs
I certainly hope so. It's shameful that Apple are not yet offering 1920x1200 in the 15" MacBook Pro. If Lenovo can do it, Apple can do it.
The iPhone is 163 dots per inch. Sony are shipping a 4.5 inch screen which at 1024x600 is 250 dots per inch. http://www.dynamism.com/ux/main.shtml So, a sub 17 inch screen supporting 1080p is very possible right now.
You have specs on the Mac Nano? Are you sure it won't support Dual-DVI or Type 3 HDMI?
There are two reasons why 10.4.11 should be more stable than 10.3.9. One is, as I noted above, many bugs were fixed between 10.4.0 and 10.4.11 that are still present in 10.3.9. The other reason is that 10.4.x has had two and a half years of bug fixes applied while 10.3.x had about one and half years of bug fixing. I'm relatively risk-averse and I upgraded from 10.3.9 to 10.4.2. I probably should have waited for 10.4.3 as I found (subjectively) that 10.4.2 seemed to...
Many of the bugs fixed between 10.4.0 and 10.4.10 are also present in 10.3.9. I suspect that 10.4 became more stable than 10.3.9 somewhere between 10.4.5 and 10.4.8.
If Apple offer a 24" ACD with 2560x1600, I'll buy one -- if it doesn't cost more than $2000.
Many people, including but not limited to lawyers and accountants, need to have three or more text documents or spreadsheets open at the same time. They have no need for accelerated graphics.
