so the new macbooks were unveiled today...

here's a breakdown of all the new features...

the idea of the renovations to the already excellent macbook and macbook pro is making them "greener"

the shell is alluminum, the multi-touch track pad is glass, theres all this energy star stuff and blah blah blah...

its two toned... its thinner... its FASTER... theres no click button... instead, it abouts the tap pad feature of many PC laptops on the market... but the difference is... it does different things depending on how many fingers u place on it... [taken directly from the apple website: Use two fingers to scroll up and down a page. Pinch to zoom in and out. Swipe with three fingers to flip through your photo libraries. Rotate to adjust an image with your fingertips. Using the new four-finger swipe gesture, swipe up or down to access Exposé modes and left or right to switch between open applications.]... it still features the two finger right click function... okay... other than that... its not much else new... but it is nice looking... oh, before i forget... the macbook now features the backlit keyboard like the macbook pro has... well had... for years... now us macbookers can have it too...

now, u can learn the specifics on ur own... i really am not super computer savvy... but i will say this... tough luck for u guys who want to buy a brand new black macbook... they no longer make them... sorry... but u can still buy the white one...

now... PRICES!!!!

hold onto ur seats ladies and gentlemen...

rumors have been swirling for weeks that the new macbooks would do soemthing never before done in the history of apple... provide its macbooks for under $1000... the story goes, their stock value is dropping and they need to compete with the other laptop manufacturers... soo... did they deliver...

sorry folks... but the new macbook starts at $1299 and the macbook pro starts at $1999... so just factor in the amount it cost to ship, customize, and all that good stuff... and you my friend, would have spent a cool two grand... but hey, the bright side is... u can always get one shipped from overseas... thats cheaper-ish... i love my little macbook... it serves me well... =]

Blegh blegh blegh. You're looking at a Mac Nazi right here. I'd love the Mac if everything on it wasn't so goddamned restricted. I can't download any free programs from independant publishers because Macs don't support their file formats.

It's like a PC with beautiful, beautiful autism.
