Apple Notebook Event 2008 – Notes

Apple Redesigned MacBook 2008 Some notes and thoughts about the notebook event that Apple held today. I like the new MacBook design, and keeping the price low enough was very important (redesigned MacBooks start at $1299, older-style at $999). Steve Jobs also left the door open for netbooks in the future.

The new designs:
– They are moving the MacBooks and MacBook Pros to the same design / construction as the 13.3″ MacBook Air
– MacBook Pros are getting a hybrid graphics system, similar to certain Sony models (although the Sony VAIOs using Intel and NVIDIA side-by-side – Apple’s solution is NVIDIA for both). Uses an NVIDIA 9400M and 9600M GT.
– The new MacBooks are getting an LED-lit display, along with the new NVIDIA graphics, a faster bus speed, and faster memory (DDR3).
– For the time being, you can still buy the older style 13.3″ MacBook
– Firewire was dropped from the redesigned MacBooks
