I pretty much thought the same thing as everyone else: 'MacBook Pro' seems very awkward. Say it out loud, and the words seem at angles with each other somehow. It's the way you have to change the position of your mouth/tongue from one word to the next. A lingust could explain it better. I've forgotten all my first-year classes.
I don't agree that the 'PowerBook' and 'Power Mac' names are untenable if the machines should use Intel chips. Outside of the Mac cult, few people bought Macs because of Apple's hype about the PowerPC. The reality is that most of them bought their Macs while remaining ignorant about the processors inside. Apple is throwing away a strong brand in 'PowerBook', and without good enough reason, I think.
Ah, whatever. Give us a decent 'MacBook' before the second half of the year (why so long?), and I'm sure we'll get over it. 8)
(Truth be known, I'm still steamed that Apple never made hay with a 'Flower Power G4 Tower.'
Pshaw?! That one would have earned my loyalty forever...)
