The Macworld conference on January 10, was one with no lack of surprises. The biggest one being the new MacBook Pro, Apple’s Intel based laptop. ZDNet UK shares with us their first view:
Jobs claims that Intel’s Core Duo will deliver performance that’s four to five times faster than what you’ll get from Apple’s prior-generation PowerBook G4. The 2.59cm.-thick MacBook Pro weighs 2.54kg and includes a built-in iSight camera, an ExpressCard slot and an Apple Remote for navigating the company’s Front Row media software. Two versions will be available in February: a Â£1,429 (inc. VAT) model with a 1.67GHz processor, 512MB of RAM and an 80GB hard drive; and a beefier Â£1,779 (inc. VAT) model with a 1.83GHz processor, 1GB of RAM and a 100GB hard drive.
