    I want the MBP, but I hate hearing all these great rumors about a tablet, which I would use even more.

    I'm dying to know what MBP battery life is like. If it's ~4 hours, it will rock.

    but the 2.16GHz is an extra 300 bucks for an extra .16GHz, because it can only be done to the 2Ghz model.


    They are shipping now, btw.

    they want Mac to be in the name of every Apple computer, and they were getting sick of seeing Power.

    once the architecture and components get closer and closer to PC's i'm sure they wanted the name in there just to make sure people can still make the distinction :hs::sadwavey:

    Funny thing is, they were called Powerbooks before they started using PPC processors. Thus, I don't see why they needed to change the name either.

    Mac in every name...

    The level of reading comprehension on OT is equal to that of a 1st grader.
