New MacBook Pro

http://www.apple.com/macbookpro/

So yesterday Apple unveiled this, pretty large upgrade for the powerbook.

It's based on an Intel processor, and is 4 times faster than the old 1.67GHz powerbooks. Also the screen is 67% brighter.

At only one inch thick, and faster than the G5... it still runs OS X (hides from witeshark). hehe

12" powerbook for the win.

yea i wish i would have a legit reason to spend half my savings on another laptop. But i dont.

Funny how the only reason apple owns so much is cause someone had to pull them out of the hole with *insert large sum of cash here* so microsoft wouldnt monopolize.
