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 want a pro-level premium display in it and to see that Apple has raised the pixel pitch means they're using a cheaper LCD.

Cheer up! It also means you probably won't get THOSE LINES on your screen any more.

Those lines, as in the two horizontal lines you see in an aperture grille monitor that has been running for awhile? If so, he wouldn't seen THOSE lines in an LCD anyway, since they only appear in aperture grille CRTs.
