  • Apple Killing Off 15-inch Macbook Pro?

    An interesting find today as we stuck our hand blindly into the Apple rumor box – it seems that Apple may be doing away with its 15” model of the Macbook Pro. The reasoning behind this poppycock is that the price of LCDs has fallen so much, the price difference between 15” and 17” is miniscule enough to offer 17″ displays at a 15″ price.

Never again will you have to turn the machine around to take a picture of the world around you.

  • Core 2 Duo MacBook Pros: In Production Now?

    Another day, another completely unsubstantiated Apple rumor. This one comes to us courtesy of Apple Insider. Its sources claim Apple is close to replacing the Core Duo processor in the current line of MacBook Pros with the Core 2 Duo, and bringing the clock speeds up to 2.33GHz.
