  • Flash support sounds cool, when your showing your video clips from a video camera, the external HD support is more mandatory. Any takers on the update timeframe?

  • Im looking at getting an atv as my media server mainly for itunes - music/videos and movies, one question though, can you simply daisy chain usb drives to the atv as required, I was going to start with a 1TB external and go from there? hasapi
  • I have a MBP - 2G Core Duo and a PB G4 1.25G, i will probably replace the PB with a 13" MB instead of MBP because i wanted better portability for this unit. It can drive a 24" at full res (1920x1200), i dont use graphics intensive apps - so i hope …
  • Um, that's a SE 880i not a 810 - but the point your making is valid, i was thinking the same thing - the iphone isnt even shipping for another 4 months and yet a search is on for a iphone 'killer'. The iphone must have inherited the ipod superior…
  • Im totally against a "Cube like" product, i think the mac mini, imac and mac pro fit the bill quite well. But i did like the potential of a low end Mac Pro using the Conroe/Extreme, i guess the problem there is its unlikely to be much cheaper than t…

  • The merom imacs will be a compromise of style over performance value, compared to similar priced Conroe PC's. Also, any suggestions of the removal of the 17" is absurd?, it is NEEDED for Education, but can be offered to the general public. So you…
  • Having purschased a Dell 24" for my PB G4, i can tell you that a 23" iMac would be very nice indeed. Im enjoying the viewing enhancement. That said, im considering a MB and not a MBP (partner has one anyway), since the 13" allows better portability…

  • I would definitely buy a Black 23" with Conroe cpu, i might even buy without the Extreme Edition. Otherwise ill probably replace my PB with a black MB with Dell 24".

  • Is it realistic to expect the Macbook to get the Core 2 Duo so soon?, i can get a Black Macbook with a Dull 24" for about the same price as a Macbook Pro!.
  • Im also keen to update my trusty old PB 1.25G, I just added a Dull 24" - and it certainly feels like a NEW machine - in fact, im sure the external DVI video is faster than the 15" TFT. But i digress, now i want to get a nice super fast MBPro for thi…
