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.

Not trolling, but why can't you just use a phone? I have this question at my work; video phones are on everyone's desk but no one can answer my question as to why it's necessary to see the person you're calling. Especially when it's someone in the same building.

The only time I can kinda understand it is for large group calls when you need to see who's talking.

I can see the point of the remote for presentations though. It's the same type of thing companies have been selling for a while except now it's included w/ the computer. And since it's made by Apple, you know it will work w/ your system and not cause problems.

Well, it could be because of the fact, that many unconcious messages are sent trough facial expressions. Messages which are lost in non-visual communication forms.
