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.

Battery Life?

Any numbers on the MacBook battery life vs a PowerBook? I'm quite pleased with my iBooks battery life, and I've not heard many glowing reviews about PC notebooks.

So I'm curious about that (and this is where the "85 watt" powersupply but in the article rings a bit louder).
