MacBooks

The new MacBooks that everyone’s been talking about the past few weeks are finally here.

The biggest plus i see, is that they come in black! That shiny white is fine for the iPod, but not a computer.

They come with a Intel Core Duo processor, 1.83, or 2.0 GHz, 13in widescreen display with a “glossy” screen (i hate those), built in iSight, and Apple Remote, all at 5.2lbs.

The white is avalaibe in 1.83 or 2.0 GHz ccombinations starting at $1,099, the black only avaliable in 2.0 GHz starting at $1,499.  Come on apple, black is so much nicer, make it cheaper….

buy one

PC Games on a MAC with BootCamp

Ok so I was going to wait for steve to post this but I didn’t want to wait around for him to get out of his boring class.  Anyways, I walk into my Game Design class today, and my Teacher who is a MAC user tells us how the new Intel Mac’s can play PC games just as well as PC’s can.  I of course laughed at him, and then he goes and refers us to www.1up.com where there is apparently some review up about playing games.  I’ll let you read it for yourself.  I first of find it amusing how they don’t even use graphics intensive games to run their tests, seriously now, my friends 3 year old laptop with standard onboard graphics can play Half Life 2 without any problems, but oh well.  It’s kinda funny how MAC can’t get companies to make games for their computers so they have to go and put windows on their hardware in order for people to play.  And another thing, what’s the point of having a MAC anymore if all your going to do is boot it up into Windows to have all your fun? But anyways go read it for yourself and please come back and tell me what you think 🙂 

Check out 1up’s Review

Macs to support Windows?

This isn’t the same old news that the new Intel Macs can be hacked to run windows xp, this is “offical” news from apple itself.

The program called: “Boot Camp” allows you to install Windows XP natively onto your shiny new Intel Mac. This has to be a late April Fool’s doesn’t it?

Sounds that way, but from the offical apple website, it looks legit: Boot Camp.

More and more people are buying and loving Macs. To make this choice simply irresistible, Apple will include technology in the next major release of Mac OS X, Leopard, that lets you install and run the Windows XP operating system on your Mac. Called Boot Camp (for now), you can download a public beta today.

The program burns a cd with all the required drivers and firmware for Windows. It also will partition your disk for Windows. Step by Step instructions avaliable right on their site too. It also reminds you:

Don’t forget to follow best practices for updating and protecting your Windows system (see “Word to the wise” to right).

I downloaded the software, but, not having a mac, i have no idea to tell if its real or not, I’d assume it is.

This is gonna kill Steve

AppleInsider is reporting that a new 17 inch MacBook Pro will be introduced in June at the World Wide Developer’s Conference, which is normally held in June. The “flagship” notebook from Apple should boast at least a 2.16GHz Intel Core Duo and, of course, a huge monstrosity of a widescreen.

The bad news?

Despite optimism from some of Apple’s current 12-inch PowerBook customers, a 12-inch MacBook Pro model has yet to surface on Apple’s product roadmap, reliable sources have told AppleInsider.

This really makes me sad too actually…I’ll be in the market for an actual portable laptop in the summer and would have loved a 12 inch MacBook Pro. Because let’s face it…who wants a MacBook(or new Intel iBook)? And because this….is way too big.
