    Why did apple release an Intel iMac and make it available almost immediately but not a notebook?

    Maybe they weren't quite finished with the MacBook Pro? and maybe there weren't enough Intel Core Duo chips to ship both new systems in January? *shrug*

    It's only a month's wait. :)

    The iMac will have been easier to get out the door because it doesn't have the same power draw worries as a notebook.

    The iMac also seems to be using a different, higher voltage variant of the processor than would be used in the MacBook, and a simple matter of availability from Intel could be part of the shipment delay.

    Maybe because they had to change a bit less in the imac so it wasnt that hard to pull off.


    Bless
