Concerns about Sandy Bridge after idle talk about Macs: 1/ That it will transform our MacBook Pro... into... MacBook Big Bro.... That its manufacturers have designed it to monitor your usage and send back information about your activities. Who designed them? Why so much effort for something which is basically marginal improvements? 2/ That its TDP - ability to dissipate heat - will still mean that the lap top will become too hot on occasion. 3/ That it will consume more power and reduce battery life. 4/ That your average user will not notice any improvements in performance. 5/ That the best thing Mac could do is bring down its prices; make sure that Macs will not suffer a sudden attack of viruses; compensate the text size which is made to shrink by higher resolution.
