Apple At the WWDC today, Apple has lifted the veil on a number of features of its upcoming operating system, Snow Leopard. Most of the work on Snow Leopard has gone into under-the-hood technologies and optimisations, but there are also a number of interface tweaks. The company also updated some of its laptops, while also lowering their prices. We got all the news from MacRumorsLive.com.

Nicely done

I'm sure there will be some nitpicking later on, but overwall I'm happy and encouraged by these changes.

I'm still running a white MacBook from 2 years ago and getting over 4 hours of battery life so having it stuck inside really isn't an issue to me.... I have a feeling this is going to be the complaining of just having USB ports on a computer... eventually everyone will realize it was for the better!

Cheaper Macs can never be a bad thing and $29 upgrade... they stuck it to Microsoft a bit on this one!! I wonder about the response???

I think you're mistaken. Microsoft stopped yawning about Apple a long time ago. Else they wouldn't have spent millions in the worst marketing campaign ever…

Microsoft is slowly loosing terrain. Win 7 looks promising, and works as fast as XP on my old HP Tablet PC (1.5Gb ram), but not everyone will be willing to buy "yet another OS".

Time will tell.

Not only did the MacBook get FireWire back, it is FireWire800 and an SD slot was added. Also, it is now a MacBook Pro.
