This update is not unexpected, and is quite minor. My guess is that we see it this Tuesday. A few years ago, Apple's MacBooks had Intel GMA 950 for integrated graphics. Then, Intel GMA X3100, followed by Nvidia 9400M, and now it is Nvidia 320M in the latest 13" MacBook Pro. After Apple starts using a new integrated graphics chip in the 13" MacBook (or Pro), they update their other products, one after the other. Looks like the white MacBook will be next. I wonder...
I have said this many times and I will say it again. 1) The chances of Apple's iPhone appearing on Verizon are ZERO. It makes no strategic sense for Apple. 2) iPhone's exclusivity with AT&T is beneficial for both Apple and AT&T. Apple can persuade AT&T to do things (such as the sweet iPad data plan) that it cannot if AT&T did not have the exclusive. I am willing to bet that Apple plans to introduce (in a couple of years) an iPod touch 3G with the same sweet iPad 3G...
I think Apple will try to convince Intel to let Nvidia make chipsets for the Core i series of microprocessors. I see Apple's use of Intel HD integrated graphics as a temporary solution. Apple's discussions with AMD is a way to signal to Intel that Apple is not happy with the current Intel/Nvidia licensing situation.
I still use my 1st Gen. The data plan is $15 cheaper per month. I don't do a lot web surfing with it. So, I am happy with just EDGE. The design is a Classic. I may, however, upgrade to the next version.
In short, Verizon sucks !!
Apple should appoint Tim Cook to the Board. To recognize his contributions to the company.
Agree 100%. Apple will not do anything to sully it's brand. I think Apple wants Intel to reach a deal with Nvidia. That's why the 13' MacBooks have not moved to Core i3. Instead, they moved to a faster Nvidia chip. And by moving to automatic switching, they have blunted the criticism of Intel HD in the 15" and 17" MacBook Pros. Apple is not happy with the current state of affairs between Intel and Nvidia. I bet Steve has been calling Intel's people to give them a...
What form factor change were you expecting? It's darn near perfect. I don't think Apple will change the form factor for a long time. They have made the investment in the unibody design; now they will harvest the returns for many years. I am somewhat disappointed with the choice of Intel HD. I understand that Apple may have had no choice given the licensing issues between Intel and Nvidia. In practical terms, it may not matter.
No. Unless you can sell your 2.26 for more than you paid for it.
By Steve's calculator, $241-$209 = $300. His calculator made him a billionaire. We should all get one of those !!
