Why did apple release an Intel iMac and make it available almost immediately but not a notebook?
They also did the mac book pro...
But its not available like the iMacs are
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.
