I really thought Gorges was dead. I remember when that guy got the puck in the throat x_x Couple of stitches and the puck left an imprint on his helmet. He\'s apparently playing tonight. Game wasn\'t slow. I would love more like this..

all prices in US.

First Quad core cpu's in apple laptops. Not all apps can use all 4 cpu's, hell some dn't even take advantage of two. so introducing Turbo Boost 2 Technology.

Intel® Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 automatically allows processor cores to run faster than the base operating frequency if it's operating below power, current, and temperature specification limits.



Very interesting that they're now using ATI GPU's.

LightPeak port macbook pro


Also of interest, the machines all have a mini display/thunderbolt port. From wiki
Light Peak is a proprietary optical cable interface designed by Intel to connect devices in a peripheral bus. The technology has a high bandwidth, 10 Gbit/s, which may be boosted to 100 Gbit/s over the next decade


Oh, thunderbolt is also known as lightpeak by intel and probably the whole rest of the PC industry.

The ATI GPU's are discreet, meaning, your not using it, then it's not on and uses the integrated intel gpu. Start playing a game and it turns on the GPU.

Looks nice, but the price is a bit high for me. I'm actually planning on buying a computer, my laptop is having issues with the graphics card so it sometimes reboots. For 999$ i can get:

Intel? Core?i7-930 processor
6GB Tri Channel DDR3 SDRAM at 1333MHz
1TB - 7200RPM, SATA 3.0Gb/s, 16MB Cache
AMD Radeon HD5670 1GB GDDR5

I know it's just a desktop, but i haven't been moving my laptop around very much an i can get a much more powerful system as a desktop.

When i looked at Mac desktops, they started at 2599 for the mac pro. The iMac was closer to my price, but underpowered and i don't need the monitor.

6 gigs not enough?
i have 4 and unless i'm running 2 OS' or maybe photoshop, i never touch the 4 gigs, even while playing games.

macpro is not for you, it's a desktop for production, as in 3d rendering, video, image, sound. my friend pat has one and doesn't do any of the above. he does run something like 8 OS' on it at the same time, plus multiple servers.

if you're honestly looking at imac, i'd say wait for either this refresh or the next. the screens, cpu and gpu's are supposed to change soon.

Check here for suggested update schedule, though the more i read macrumors the more i think it's info is supplied by apple through "leaks"
