Today I will simply write about about how much I love the new laptop introduced by Steve Jobs at his opening keynote in MWSF. Apple-bashers, you may leave this blog now.
Lets compare the MacBook Pro with the current PowerBook 15" offered by Apple:
- PowerPC G4 1.67 Ghz, 512KB L2 caché, 166 Mhz bus, Radeon 9700 128MB SDRAM
- Intel Core Duo 2x 1.83 Ghz, 2MB L2 caché, 667 Mhz bus, Radeon X1600 256MB GDDR3
This is no ordinary update. I don't care whether it is actually 4x faster in synthetic benchmarks or not, as claimed by Apple's marketing machine. Arguing about that is simply pointless.
I just added the MacBook Pro to my wishlist :). PC users will probably opt to similar hardware configurations in the near future, and cracked versions of Mac OS X x86 will surface. These surely are interesting times..
