"And Now the MacBook Pros" — Live Blogging From Apple!

Steve Jobs introduced the new MacBook Pros today here in Cupertino, which has me very happy since mine is on its last leg as we speak! The new MacBook Pros will contain a slamming new graphics card from Nvidia (great for all you animators and gamers out there), a LED backlit display, a whole new glass trackpad that comes minus a button (click right on the track pad to select), some cool four-finger gestures, a magnetic latch, and a unibody enclosure, which means the body is made from one solid piece of aluminum and is stronger than any other MacBook produced.

Another great feature of the MacBook Pro is its eco status. Because of the solid casing, Apple can use 50 percent less materials to get this bad boy on the market, and use discarded aluminum for other products like iPods, or even other MacBooks. All the standard specs are there: WiFi enabled, Bluetooth, and all your essential connectors.

Doesn't really look like a Dell to me... and even if it was identical, it's what INSIDE that counts. Witchbaby, I was about to ask the same question myself... Can't wait to get one!

7bits I thought I read on Gizmodo that it had FW800. Which is fine, I just need to swap out all my cables to the ones that allow me to use my old skool FW devices. It doesn't have the black top, just the black keyboard. I believe the entry was $1999 and top end is $2499.
