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.

I don't think apple will touch blue-ray or HD-DVD with a 10 foot pole unless there is a standard chosen. Apple happily stayed out of the DVD wars until DVD-R became more prominent...


Are you joking? Apple shipped many early G4 desktops with DVD-RAM. Later they held on to just DVD-R for a long time while the majority of PCs came with +/- drives.

Apple is going with Blu-ray (http://www.apple.com/pr/library/2005/mar/10blu-ray.html), though I'm sure they will probably support both...
