    Yeah I'm still waiting for the superconductor-electromagnetic cooler flumbo jumbo, so that the nexp MBP will be .01 inches thin and run at Mac Pro speeds.

    Come on Apple get your act together!

    Oh, and I also want 24 hour battery life.

    Yeah, and air cooling doesn't leak all over the place as soon as the warranty expires. Something I'm sure a lot of Powermac G5 owners have thought about in the last few years.

    I should add to something said earlier in this thread, that the 9600M GT is not exactly a die shrink of the 8700M GT or 8600M GT (although they share all the important specs).

    The 9600M GT supposedly shares the same G96 GPU with the desktop 9500GT card. It's sort of like 25% of a G92 GPU. The 9700M GT also uses G96, it's just higher clocked.

    One interesting thing to note is that G96 is set for a die shrink to 55nm very soon.

    Soon, dammit! I am buying a new laptop in the next month or so and am hoping I can get a new update one but if they keep pushing it back, I will just get the last of the older ones

    I'm not sure why Apple would pick the 65nm 9600M GT over the 55nm, 29 watt 9650M GS which is a noticeable amount faster.

    Also, they will hopefully include a CUDA-ready (or whatever apple equivalent will be called) NVIDIA video card.

    I was right...

    1. The new laptops are coming in September. I said this at MacRumors and they flamed me to a crisp saying I was deluded. Now there you have it. MacRumors suck too.

    2. They may be coming with a CUDA ready or OpenCL ready MB like I said. I was hoping but not expecting this seeing that snow leopard is not due till next year.

    LG Display on Thursday said it has started mass-producing the world's first notebook displays to be truly color-accurate. Using an RGB LED backlight versus the one-color backlights of other notebook displays, the 17.1-inch, 1920x1200 LCD pushes its color reproduction up to 105 percent, or about 40 percent more than a typical notebook display with a fluorescent backlight at the same size. The breakthrough should give AV professionals a display they can use for image editing and gamers a more vivid image, LG says........
