Apple new MacBook and MacBook Pro

, posted: 27-Feb-2008 07:56

Now they come with Penryn core. With MacBook speed bumped to 2.4GHz on the "Better" and "Best", and not just that... they too come with 2GB memory as standard (about time!) The MacBook Pro has got the speed bumped up to 2.5GHz on 17" with option to CTO to 2.6GHz. And they all will have multitouch pad built in, so they can be as cool as their sister Air. I have hold off trying/wanting to get a MacBook/Pro because the imminent upgrade was due very very soon and it did! I spot check my Mac Buyer's Guide and was "adviced" to wait for new products to come... I'm quite glad for the wait and the best part is... if you order from Apple NZ Store online, you'll get the new products! Skip those retails and go straight to Apple NZ Store as you'd be sure the latest products are available - and they'll ship it immediately within 24-hours. Looks like the MacBook Black of 2.4GHz and 2GB with 250GB HDD is yelling my name... mmm... And it's only NZ$2399 AND with free shipping. Though, it'll cost $39 for an Apple Remote...

Removal of Firewire - boo!!


Author's note by chiefie, on 17-Oct-2008 07:58

Hmm... This is a really old blog... like back in Feb 08. Anyway, the removal of Firewire isn't scaring me. Personally, I think it is perhaps a good reason as not that many devices come in Firewire connection, except higher-professional devices. And with USB3 looming around, and Firewire 800+1600/3200 with Gigabit Ethernet compatible, Firewire 400 just see its natural retirement.
