  • Although? In the wake of AMD's acquisition of ATI, I'd not be surprised about any future collaboration between nVidia and intel. Now, whether this extends to Apple at this time, who can say. BTW, wasn't Apple in the HyperTransport group a …
  • Not to derail, but I am a little ignorant on the matter? Would not 3rd party GPU cards for the standard windows PC now be something a Mac Pro could use? assuming there were drivers? It just seems if Apple offers a base model of 'A' and I buy a…
  • Quote: Originally posted by kim kap sol Oh trust me...Apple can and may solder the CPU to the board. In fact, they may do this now just to spite you. I'll blame you if it happens. They could get away with that when they were PPC machines,…
  • Quote: Originally posted by ThinkExpensive Yeah everyone's making a HUGE deal about the name, and nobody's talking about the computer. For instance: the fact that Apple has YET TO POST THE BATTERY LIFE of the MacBook Pro on its website. My…
  • And all this time I thought it was the about the user experience, not the silkscreen on the bezel.
  • Quote: Originally posted by Booga I can't imagine Jobs going with Intel Inside stickers. Even for millions of dollars. And yet, from a retail perspective it is exactly what they want announced, so don't count it out. not by a long shot. A…
  • I don't think Apple will be able to whiz-bang surprise announce its intel based machines like other models in the past. With the substantial need for the apps to be properly readied there will need to be a significant public lead time so the devs…
  • I'd just like to point out a machine bought today would have a 2-3 year life-span under normal circumstances. You ladies hand-wringing over how your 3 year purchase will affect you in 18 months it laughable. It is not like you machine will jus…
  • It also seems to me that x86 as a dev foothold (like the g5s for the xbox 360) is extremely likely?much more so that Apple just cobbling together off the shelf stuff from whoever. Would a jump to IA-64 be that much of an undertaking? I mean, …
  • But? does intel mean full on x86, ISA and all?? Any reason Apple can't just develop it's own architecture ala SGI around the CPU? It isn't like they are gonna ship running an AWARD BIOS. They will write their own or such and have their own ver…
  • Quote: Originally posted by Outsider Question # 345 Which one of these does not belong? Xbox moves from x86 to PowerPC. Playstation moves from proprietary to PowerPC. Gamecube goes from embedded PowerPC to PowerPC. Apple goes from PowerP…
  • I actually like it a lot. In fact, this could just be the 'new' metal. The drawers, while useful for somethings, really now look more like Aqua iCandy. Mail looks like it will finally be a robust mail app. I disagree this is longhorn-ish…
  • I did it... I hit the button... yup... the green one... "Place Order Now!" After 1 year of nail biting and speculating (and want becoming NEED) a AlBook 15" / 1.25 / Combo Drive is inbound; ETA 4-6 days. A review will follow when I get it sw…
  • Updating to a 15 AlBook w/ AE as soon as it is avail to order.... Unless the .0000001% chance that they are a total disaster update is realized... and I'll have to reconsider. Probably try to find a used 867 Ti to bide my time. T
  • Quote: Originally posted by Wrong Robust I've been noticing this all over actually. resellers and stuff, used to just say powerbook, or titanium powerbook, or whatever, but lately(I think since the 12, 17" were released) they have been startin…
  • Quote: Originally posted by applenut which costs the same or more as an external one. difference? internal is stuck to the G5 while the external can be used on different computers if desired advantage? external precisely. BT adap…
  • Quote: Originally posted by keyboardf12 I wonder if this fits with the external chasis rumors from a short while back? If you call the new Render Farm Building on the Campus an external chassis, sure....
  • The worst part about it is Apple' lauding of the greatness of 12" and 17" Is the 15" a bad model? No. But it is Apple that runs around touting Airport Extreme, BlueTooth and the other virtues of the AlBooks. Apple for crimany's sake. T…
