no, this is not a rumor...it's too out there for that...it's just what i want
what do you think?
Unless I was going to have only one computer I wouldn't want this. Uses too much battery life, creates too much heat. Even then I would think twice.
I want it. I'm getting a PB for musi work, and I need all the HP I can get.
Only if apple devolps the worlds best battery.
I mean seriously unless the 970 uses 1w that is gonna suuuccckkk power soo fast...
It would be like the 3.0 P3 laptops, like 2 heavy @-- batteries.
Well if it's true that the PPC 970 uses less power and produces less heat. Then I don't see why you couldn't have what you want Jef!
I aggree, this is my dreem macheine.
however, the 17" is the only one on the current line with enough surface aea to sufficentally fit/ cool a dual configuration.
i dont know about batery life. but arnt the 870s supposed to be low power?and perhaps you can turn off one processer when you arnt plugged in and when you are you can use both?
mostly i would want to see apple beat the pc world to a dualie laptop
i can find enough horse power in an ibook with a burner
I would definitely want one for bragging rights. I am certain Apple has one in the works, I just bet it will be out next year or late this year. I know I will have to buy one.
Also, I hope you could turn off one processor for normal operation, otherwise it wouldn't be very useful as a laptop.
If they do this, it will probably run in single processor mode when you are on the battery by default. You could tell it to run on two processors if you wanted to, but it would only default to that when it is plugged in. That fits the persona of a 17" PB anyway. Its a computer for people who occasionally need to take it with them, as opposed to daily laptop packing around. You will probably get your wish, although I don't think the PB will go dual till after the 970 is out in the towers for a while. Just a hunch thought.
...i'd like to see how apple would get out of the lawsuits from the people with 3rd degree burns to their thighs
Dell didn't get sued. (I'm lazy to link, any help?)
I want one too, but it seems like total overkill for a notebook. Besides, when the 970 does come out, I doubt we will need to go to move to duals for a long time.
Or I at least hope.
need? what's that mean?
