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.

It will be years before Blu-Ray or HD-DVD will make DVD obsolete.
Most software is still distributed on CD!

Obsolete meaning why use it for storage?

DL disks are no better than SL dvds, the only plus is the capacity, but that will get blown away by BR and HDDVD.... so why bother with it.
