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.

The new Intel Macbooks use more power, produce more heat, have less features and are simply not faster at all? There's a shock. Power per.......what?!

I think it was clear, for whatever reason, that they weren't going to get as much power out of their new x86 architecture over the old Power as they though they were.
