Help, Guides, and News on making the Switch To Apple Macintosh Computers
A few key quotes from the article:
"Within the past two weeks, Apple has upgraded the Intel processors in two of its portables, the MacBook and MacBook Pro, offering greater speed at the same price as earlier models."
"If the former computers were good values, the new models are superb values worth considering for an end-of-year purchase or for holiday gift giving"
"The MacBook Pro, with its 15-inch screen and 2.33 gigahertz Intel Core 2 Duo processors, would be a very good choice for many traveling business people."
"Along with size and a marginally more powerful CPU chip than the smaller MacBook sent for review, what's nice about the MacBook Pro is its made-for-business styling, the ability to handle up to 3 GB of RAM, or 50 percent more than a maxed-out MacBook, and a better graphics card, ATI's Mobility Radeon X1600, with 256 megabytes of dedicated RAM. In contrast, the MacBook uses an Intel graphics processor that shares 64 MB of RAM with the main system memory."
"The MacBook, with which I fell in love last summer while toting one around southwestern Turkey, is back in a new and improved model with a 2 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo chip and up to 2 GB of RAM and a 160-GB hard disk drive, all this for $1,774 from Apple"
"Other features of the MacBook work very nicely, including the built-in Wi-Fi antenna and ISight camera. Sound quality is very good, and there are enough ports to connect a range of peripherals. My earlier endorsement of both MacBook models, basic and Pro, stands, and is enhanced with more bang for your computing buck. Oh, and do I need to remind you that with Parallels Workstation software, you can run Microsoft Windows (if needed) alongside the Mac OS?"
