macbook pron

MacBook pics in the wild already! I’m trying to convince myself I really need this for NIE… Flickr set pointed out to me by Gizmodo.

Here’s a quick and dirty review from Create Digital Music.

As a portable music machine, unless you prefer bigger screens, it’s hard to go wrong with these computers. The only big downsides: black costs you extra, and like the mini before them, the integrated graphics are pretty limited for 3D.

And a slightly more in-depth look with better pics at Engadget.

Yes, you’re not getting that 15.4-inch display or the ExpressCard slot (remember, the iBook before the MacBook didn’t have a PC Card slot, either), nor are you getting that fancy ATI Mobility Radeon X1600, but you’re also forgoing that notably larger MacBook Pro power brick, mechanical latches, and a dimmer (though less reflective) display.

Yes, if I buy this, I will be making beatz… with a Z.

An upgrade to my preferred specs of 2GB Ram and 120GB HDD will SGD$3608 (with the Education promo, of course, heh), whilst MacBook Pro with upgrades will be SGD$5219.

Ooh, can buy MIDI keyboard and audio monitors with the leftover… then again, better let the early adopters spot the technical issues first, later macam like the MacBook Pro got heat and whine issues.

    but think about squinting at the sequencing interface with no where to open your available windows. i’ve seen joshua at his 13 ibook navigating garageband, it is very painful to watch.
