New Macs


The new Intel Macs are finally here, and boy do they look good. They have Intel Core Duo, or dual-core Pentium-M chips. These are low power, dual processor chips. The Pentium-Ms make Centrino laptops really fast; about as fast as a Pentium 4 desktop with twice the processor speed, in my experience. They appear to smoke the G4 and G5 chips as well, with even Jobs claiming that they're 2-3X (for the iMac) and 4-5X (for the MacBook Pro) the speed of the PowerPC Chips. I was sort of hoping that they'd be 64-bit as well, but I guess not.
