  • There's no real room for a MacBook update without a Pro update. The processor specs ? which most average consumers look at and judge a computer ? are already colliding with the high-end MB and the low-end MBP. Revving the MB above the low end of …

  • Gross misuse of the term "begs the question."
  • Quote: Originally posted by TenoBell There is no technical reason why Apple could not have put a dedicated graphics card in this current MacBook. Intel will also have new integrated graphics chips that will be better than the current one. …
  • In terms of home theatre, size is not as important as resolution. A 30" cinema display is not only too small for a larger room to be used as a device to watch video on, the resolution is completely ridiculous. A 30-incher runs at 2560 x 1600 while…
  • Quote: Obviously we have a graphics problem on the Mac OS side of the fence. This is a critical component in todays computing, and Apple obviously must address it fairly soon. (at least by 2007 MWSF) I consider it more of a porting problem, as …
  • I think Boot Camp is going to be just a test. They are going to see how many people are actually using it on a consistent basis and what they are using it for [gaming, AutoCAD perhaps, etc.]. From their, Apple is going to attempt to implement Wi…
  • It's been way too quiet. At the very least I expected a celebratory Apple homepage. I think something is up, but who knows. Maybe Steve gave everybody and day off and he's sleeping in. Or maybe they are releasing something legitimate and it'…

  • I'm starting to think that if there are going to be announcements, they are going to be either minor [ie- no event, just a site release] or closer to the end of April. Especially if it is MacBooks. The demand for a redesigned, Intel-based, consume…
  • Where did all the talk of a "MacPad" come from? Besides the gesture input patents, is there anything that is substantiating to back this up besides saying "Apple HAS to be working on a tablet type device"?
  • Quote: Originally posted by MacRonin I think you both misunderstand me... I am talking about a Rev. B of a 17" (+) MacBook Pro w/Merom, meaning WHATEVER is the Rev. B once Apple starts shipping units w/Merom... As for workstation graphics, …
