Apple During a special event at the National Association of Broadcasters conference today, Apple introduced some new products. They introduced Final Cut Server and Final Cut Studio 2. "Final Cut Studio 2 puts a powerful new version of Final Cut Pro at the center of an integrated post-production workflow. Final Cut Pro 6, Motion 3, Soundtrack Pro 2, Compressor 3, DVD Studio Pro 4, and Color - a brand-new application for professional color grading - are all included in Final Cut Studio for USD 1299."

A little bit disappointed

Not that I was expecting anything spectacular, but I was really hoping for updated MacBook Pros. If not immediately available, but at least announced so that I could put in an order. My Powerbook is getting a bit old...

I guess we'll have to wait until Intel announces Santa Rosa.

So you feel that the Macbook line that is available today is crap? Come on, just give it a break and buy that Macbook or wait until you die. New ones arrives every year, maybe you can get an even better next year. Maybe you should wait and see...

Are you replying to me? If so, did you even read what I wrote? On the off chance that you're not the troll i think you are, I'll answer.

No, the MacBook line that is available now is quite good. When they introduced the Core 2 Duo line, I was disappointed that it didn't support 4 GB of memory, but that's to be expected when the motherboard chipset was made for 32-bit CPUs. When Santa Rosa comes, it will finally be updated to full 64-bit architecture, which means that I can put 4 GB of memory in the computer. Since the MacBook Pro is such an expensive computer, at least to me, being able to upgrade the memory beyond 3 GB will extend its usable life. I should also mention that this would also let the computer run dual-channel memory, which requires two memory modules in order to work. If I recall correctly, the memory performance decreases when you go from 2 GB to 3 GB.

Since Apple update their laptops roughly every 6 months, and last update came in October, its rather likely that we'll see an update fairly soon. (As in the next two months.)

And, before you cry about me not needing so much memory for browsing the web or sending email, I'd like to point out that yes, I do run heavy scientific applications on my computers...
