Yesterday was an exciting day, yet not so exciting day. Exciting because

Steve Jobs gave a keynote and announced many delightful news. Not so

exciting because there's nothing (affordably) revolutionary. I was expecting

to receive news of a new Apple iBook. A new shocking new design and Intel

dual core or single core processor inside



But NO. Steve Jobs announced the new iLife software, a new Intel powered

iMac and a new Powerbook - dubbed MacBook Pro. It only comes in 15.4 wide

screen version. The new portable is powered by an Intel Core Duo processor

at either 1.67 or 1.83GHz. There's 512MB - 2GB RAM, built-in iSight

(webcam), FrontRow (remote multimedia center). It will also come standard

with the backlit keyboard. There's a sensor that detects how much light

there is in the room and will light the keyboard accordingly, so you can

type in complete darkness without having to guess what button is for which

alphabet. Packed to be brim with other fantastic features, it's great if you

have like USD$2000 to spare. But I expecting them to announce a USD$799 or

$999 notebook to replacement for the ageing iBook. The new MacBook Pro costs

$1999 for the 1.67MHz dual core version



Oh, and if you must know. Apple sold 14 million iPods during the holiday

season at the end of 2005
