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
