HEre's an interesting thought - the Core chips Apple are using so far, are the centrino chips are they not? At least the PC laptops are pushing them as Centrino Duos....so does this mean that Apple are using the Centrino's wireless, or the wireless from Airport cards? I don't understand that one, any offers?
I like the concept, but I'd rather see us get a 12.1" and a 15.4" iBooks to put them more in the 'mainstream' form factors. The current ibooks are ugly, and mine wants to have an 'accident' when sometime after this transition.DKZ said:If the new Ibook is a 13" widescreen form, I'd rather have the old 12", don't really like the concept of widescreen laptops.
Thanks for clearing that up - very interesting stuff to know And answers a lot of questions too!Spanky Deluxe said:The Core Duos are essentially dual cored Pentium M chips with SSE3 and a larger cache. The Pentium M chips being the processor used in the Centrino platform. (Centrino is a platform, processor + chipset + wireless)
