Two for the road

It's been obvious for a while that to keep up with the other manufacturers Apple would have to release a new MacBook Pro with an Intel Core 2 Duo inside. Well, today was the day, and we got our new models.


The new Intel Core 2 Duo MacBook Pro

The only surprising thing here is the timing. Traditionally Apple has held off big announcements until the Macworld conference in January, an not worried about a pre-Christmas release like many retailers. So either this is viewed as a minor update, not worth mentioning, or the Leopard has changed its spots. No pun intended...

Personally I'm still hoping for a replacement for the 12-inch Powerbook, I can't see myself going back to a larger laptop. Having seen the 13-inch MacBook now, even that is a little bit too large compared to my Powerbook. Roll on Macworld...
