Apple "Today Apple announced the MacBook Pro. It has quite a few changes compared to the previous PowerBook. For one, it uses an Intel Core Duo (formally known as Yonah) chip. This is a dual core processor and no, unlike what Steve Jobs stated, this does not have two processors. This will help a lot with responsiveness. I've been dreaming of a dual core laptop for quite a while. However, the realization of my dream coupled with the changes seen makes me cry", writes Unsanity. UPDATE: Windows XP won't run on the new Intel Macs because of EFI. Vista is supposed to work though.

"However, the realization of my dream coupled with the changes seen makes me cry", and then he looked at the price and unstoppable weeping ensued.

I'm counting on the successor to the G4 iBook remaining around the same price as before. Same thing with the mini. In fact I'm still hopeful that the price will go down on those at least by a little.

It's unfortunate Apple doesn't also have fairly competitively priced 17" LCD's too, I havn't seen too many monitors in stores that go nicely with Macs.
