In that case, I'll probably wait for the point release. The only other feature in Leopard that looks interesting is Time Machine.
No problem. Just set a different scaling factor for Safari/Camino than for the rest of the system.
They weigh twice what comparable notebooks sold in Japan weigh.
How is that wrong? I wrote "a speedbump is possible." People are wondering when there will be a new design and it is very unlikely to coincide with Leopard.
It's a safe bet that 10.6 won't be released for PowerPC and that it will be named after a cat.
It is very unlikely that Apple would release new hardware to coincide with Leopard, though a speedbump is possible. Apple will ship new hardware after Intel ship Penryn. Now is a good time to buy if want something this year.
A step down from what? I just took some standard display resolutions and provided the sizes at 125dpi. Realistically, if Apple were to offer a higher resolution Cinema Display at 1920x1200, I think it would make more sense to use the same 133dpi display now optional for the 17" MBP. Of course, it's possible that Apple might ship Cinema Displays with non-standard resolutions.
If Apple were to ship a new line of Cinema Displays with 125dpi, they might be: 30.4" WQSXGA 3200x2048 24" WQXGA 2560x1600 18" WUXGA 1920x1200 (Apple already offers this resolution at 133dpi on the 17" MBP)
Until most applications have adapted to Resolution Independence, we won't see Cinema Displays with the 163dpi of the iPhone. However, with Resolution Independence about to ship, it's time to start offering 125dpi Cinema Displays. That would correspond to a 24" monitor with the 2560x1600 resolution of the current 30" monitor.
Yields shortly after tape-out are probably well below 10%. Intel will need to spend some time tweaking the process to get the yields up.
