Apple As predicted by many, Apple today announced upgrades to their Macbook and Macbook Pro line of computers. Both feature the new 45nm Intel Penryn processors, larger hard drives, 802.11n wifi, and for the Macbook Pro, a multi-touch trackpad. Both are "available immediately, shipping immediately." No word on the iPhone SDK.

Pretty Anemic Upgrade?

Anyone else not 'excited' by the release?

I looked at the specs and didn't find much to be thrilled with. A small bump in the processor speed and type is pretty cool and on the Macbooks, a bigger standard HD.

Unfortunately, I have upgraded my Macbook already - running a Nov 06 with 250 GB HD, 3 GB of RAM.

Just 'wanted' to see more, I guess.

Well, I have a original Macbook with a 250 GB hard drive and 2 GB RAM and those new macs look appealing to me. Why? Faster processor and better video chip. That and the fact that my Macbook is looking slightly worn after nearly 2 years of being used 12+ hours a day and having to run throughout the night.

But I might wait for the next revision before upgrading or I'll save and get a Macbook Pro.
