Apple has introduced new versions of it notebooks — Macbook & Macbook Pro — with a little more speed, more hard drive and memory, but the same price. Tell me you are as underwhelmed as me by this announcement. These speed bumps are business as usual in the PC business, thanks to Moore’s Law.
The new MBPs have a trackpad with Multi-Touch gesture support similar to that of the Macbook Air, but that’s all. I was hoping for a redesign of Macbook Pro. And the new notebooks use Intel Core Duo 2 Penryn processors, which makes me wonder: Will the new machines run cooler? (Frankly I will settle for cool enough for mobile computing.) And will they have better battery life, as suggested by Intel’s claims of energy efficiency?
