Hey- I am either getting a new MBP or the iPad (2nd version or 2nd edition, whatever it is called) I know they are probably used for different reasons, but it appears that the majority of what I use my old MPB for, the iPad has. Although I have not read-up on the new iPad, I did hear the 3/2 Apple Keynote. Concerning the new MBP, would somebody or more then one person be so kind and explain to me what the following means to a teacher, who uses his MBP for teaching 2 fully online graduate courses. I will list the parts of the MPB that I do not understand if anybody can kind of "baby talk" about what these mean. 1. The 15- and 17-inch MacBook Pro now feature quad-core Intel Core i7 processors. And the 13-inch models jump to dual-core Intel Core i5 and i7 processors. What does it mean by the 13-inch jumps to Core i5 AND i7? the 13-inch has 2 processors? The i5 and i7 and the 15-inch just has the i7? 2. New Thunderbolt technology lets you connect high-performance peripherals and high-resolution displays to a single portwith data transfer rates up to 10 Gbp. Does this mean that on top of wanting to know in plain words what this means, that also, the peripherals will have to have this new technology to bet the faster rates, or what the MBP has will allow any peripheral to use the faster data transfer rates? 3. Are the new graphics mostly for gammers? AMD Radeon graphics on the 15- and 17-inch MacBook Pro are up to 3x faster than those in previous models,** so you can take everything from games to CAD to HD video projects anywhere. what does this mean in plain words? Thanks for any help. If anybody wants to add anything about the new iPad, I am thinking about getting one of those too, but because I am a technological retarded, I really feel lost when trying to understand what the iPad does and how it hooks up to wifi. Is there just wifi or is there 3 or 4G too? It does come with Safari but is it the same version and type of Safari that is on the MPBs?
