Are you using your MBA as a primary computer. If so, what is it like. Please share your experience. If rumour on here is to be believed, Apple will update the Air in June with a new 45Nm Penryn processor on a Centrino 2 (Montevina) board. It will also get a 128 Gb SSD. Simply a 128 Gb SSD would be enough to make me buy one already. That said a second USB port would be fantastic. Anyway, goota love the MacBook Air. it's revolutionary.
if any of the guesses, rumours, half-truths and rare genuine facts we've been reading about here become reality, then the WWDC in June should be a mouth-watering proposition. This could well be the situation: 1. New MacBook Pro design - a subtle evolution of the present model that combines the best of the current design with that of the MacBook Air. It will have Montevina/ Penryn combination (Centrino 2) offering greater power, longer battery life, and all in a lighter,...
I think this is a very astute observation. But isn't there already a machine that fits this description: the Apple MacBook Air. When it was launched, everyone said where the hell is the DVD drive, but now with iTunes making movies so easily available, who needs it? The only reason I can think of having a DVD drive with a MacBook Air is to load software. But shouldn't the likes of Microsfot think about providing software on media other than DVDs? How about a USB memory...
If true, then the advent of a 3G iPhone is indeed great news. I already own an 8Gb iPhone and I have to say I am absolutely delighted with it. It worked beautifully straight out of the box. I have had no problems with it at all. The pleasure I get from receiving emails on the go, watching You Tube videos, listening to songs via the on-board iPod, playing with the other stuff AND simply having a phone that WORKS FLAWLESSLY and SYNCS so RELIABLY with Microsoft Vista and...
I have been really impressed with the new MacBook Air. I particularly like the screen size, backlit keyboard and enlarged gesture trackpad. Best of all, I think the Solid State Hard Drive is incredibly practical, fast and a step in the right direction. So it is getting some real serious consideration, especially as the MBP refresh was so disappointing. Here are my questions: 1. Do any of you use it as a primary computer, if so are the disadvantages everyone talks about...
This is too little too late. Where are the new MBPs that have been seen at Cupertino? I guess it'll be another six months before they arrive. That means Apple will debut a Montevina MBP onths after everyone else. No wonder the share price is langusihing at $120. It deserves to. Talk about disappointed. I could cry.
The Apple online store is down in the USA, UK and other markets. Is this finally what we've all been waiting for? Let's hope so.
I am not sure you're right. I think the new prefix denotes the fact that the design is different. I have no basis in fact for saying this, but i do know that new MBPs are due very soon. Given that Ai says the reported price points are the same as before - yes they are MBPs and not MBs.
I think your point of view is interesting but incorrect. The limiting factor affecting how thin the MacBook Pro can become is not so much the size of the chipset but the thickness of the required ports. It is unlikely that a MacBook Pro will be much thinner than 20 mm (versus current 25 mm), not just because the video and ethernet ports alone take up some 15 mm of depth, but also because the biggest packaging headache is the DVD drive. Besides, if the MBP were too...
I am hearing that very few mainstream Penryn processor machines have shipped yet. Still Penryn supply does not yet appear to be optimised. WTF? Anyone else have info on this. If this is true, then it may mean that MBPs WILL not arrive Tuesday after all.
