One More Thing...

(Note from Katie:  this is from January 2006)

Ooh yeah! I ordered my iPod Shuffle about a year ago minutes after the announcement at the keynote... maybe i'll even post pictures of her today? A year late, but eh... here's what Cupertino is cooking up today!
from's keynote coverage! piping hot mac shit right here, bitches!
MacBook Pro

Of course, no Steve Jobs keynote would be complete without his trademark "one more thing." This year's was a doozy: a new laptop computer called the MacBook Pro. That's right -- no more PowerBook.

The MacBook pro features an Intel Duo Core chip that runs four to five times faster than the PowerBook G4, according to jobs -- he called it the fastest notebook ever. All this, in a chassis that's actually slimmer than Apple's 17-inch PowerBook G4 model, and weighs in at 5.6 pounds. It features a 15.4-inch LCD screen that's as bright as Apple's desktop Cinema Displays.

The new MacBook Pro features a built-in iSight camera, much like Apple's iMac systems, and an integrated InfraRed (IR) sensor supports Apple's remote control, which can operate Front Row -- the software that helps turn a Mac into a media center, which Apple first introduced in a refreshed iMac model in 2005.

Apple is taking orders today, but does not expect to begin shipping the MacBook Pro until sometime in February. A 1.67GHz model will cost $1,999. A 1.83GHz model will cost $2,499.

You want some more?
