My new Apple MacBook Pro...



I'm an Apple Computer user (since 1992) and the latest WWDC keynote address released details on the new laptops...

I'm going to upgrade my 5 year old Powerbook to a new 15" Macbook Pro, woo hoo.

I won't be getting it for a month or two, but I'm really excited (been planning the finance for months now).

In 5 years (for the same money) the specs have changed to:

Screen: 15.2" (1280 x 854) --> 15.4" (1440 x 900)
Processor: 1.5 GHz PPC G4 --> 2.8 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
Video Card: (64 MB) --> (512 MB)
Bus Speed: 167 MHz --> 1066 Mhz
L2 Cache: 512 KB --> 3 MB
Std Ram: 512 Mb --> 4Gb
Max Ram: 2 GB --> 8 GB
Std HD: 80 GB --> 500 GB
Superdrive: 4x Single Layer --> 8 x Dual Layer
Airport: 802.11b/g --> 802.11n
Bluetooth: 1.1 --> 2.1 + EDR
FireWire: 800 & 400 --> 800 Only
USB: 2 x 2.0 --> Unchanged
Networking: Gigabit Ethernet --> Unchanged
Modem: Internal V92 --> None
No Camera --> Built in Camera
Battery: 50 Wh --> 73 Wh


And the 2nd revision of the iPhone is out in a couple of weeks.
I've held out long enough, (I was waiting for the new model), so I'm finally going to get one.

I need to work some more Overtime.

Til then, be safe.
