Mac OS X Since my Cube could not run Leopard, and I did not have any other Macs, I was unable to delve into Leopard right away. Apple NL was kind enough to fix this problem for us, by generously loaning me a brand new MacBook with Leopard installed so I could review it for OSNews. Read on for the findings.

Cant believe no one mentioned the 64-bit or Native Mutlicore support. Most user wont see much use of the 64-bit but many Mac users are using graphics and other creative apps that are actually starting to take advantage of the extra and larger register's on the Core2 Duo and Xeon CPUs. The performance boost is huge if you got the right software to take advantage. Also even in 32-bit, the native multicore support is great. CS3 can use multiple CPUs to process but without the OS support of it, it has been hindered until now. Leopard is great for creative professionals or anyone using highly demanding software.

Blah, blah, blah, who cares about that? Let's keep bitching about HTML in mail.

What is this Native Multicore support? I've been on the original Macbook for a year and a half now and I'm very sure it makes use of both cores.
