    Why is this important? Isn’t it more important to post that you’ve just ordered a Nexus 1? I don’t see how this relevant to an Apple site at all.

    Did I miss something? What is the problem with Derrick wanting to now about iPads “for the rest of us”? I am waiting for this info as well.

    Yeah, i’d quite like to see international pre-orders when it pops back up, but i’m thinking MBPs are more likely.
    Apple say late april for uk…
    :(

    I think his comment is related to the Adobe thread

    I’m quite sure rattyuk was being sarcastic.

    The study of money, above all other fields in economics, is one in which complexity is used to disguise truth or to evade truth, not to reveal it. The process by which banks create money is so simple the mind is repelled.

    New MacBooks Pro came out, just as expected. The differences are minimal, other than a $100 increase and few Hz less in the chip’s clocks. Not much happening yet. Still, time for me to get a new ‘puter.

    I can say that for audio work (the only thing I have tested extensively) the i7 chip is not “minimal”

    Could you please post a link to a page that explains the differences of the new vs old Intel chips? The Apple pages merely post the clock speed, which isn’t sufficient anymore to get a handle on chip performance.

    Better battery life.  Hi Res. screen option on the 15”.  And the new i7 chip.  Higher end graphics. 

    Will order today.  Nice update!

    Gizmodo have put some benchmarks up with lots of pretty illustrations:

    Some of the tests may not be multiprocessor/core aware.
