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.

Am I the only person who wouldn't mind a three-inch tall somewhat heavier luggable-type laptop, with far more features? Something that could be moved fairly easily? This drive towards 'thin' sometimes confuses me.

A friend of mine has an absolutely tiny 12" screen Sony UM30 thingy that's like half an inch tall closed such that I think it only has headphone jacks, two USB-1 ports, and ethernet. Whatever it is, it's so tiny it has to have external EVERYTHING. The keys retract onto their base so the lid can close.

My current laptop's battery is so dead I can't really use it as a portable anyway...
