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.

Indeed, we often use the laptop hooked up to the TV for viewing. A remote would be very cool for that.

Why do people get hung up on "consumer" features in a "pro" laptop. I use my laptop for everything, work AND fun. As long as the "consumer" features don't reduce the performance of the pro features I'm happy to have them as well.
