The news is all out at Apple: they are releasing a new Intel-powered iMac and a new Intel-powered laptop. For the first time in my computer-buying life, it would appear that my timing is likely to be pretty darn good. Here’s why:
I am due for a new computer from EMU in the fall and I am planning on replacing my own computer at about the same time. By then, I figure that the inevitable unexpected kinks in the switch to Intel-powered processors will be worked out, various updates and upgrades will be made, the mechanism for running both OSX and Windoze on the same computer will be in place, and (hopefully) there will be a lower-priced/”consumer” model of the Mac Book that is more like the iBook.
Yes indeed, good timing. Perhaps. Various things have to fall in place, and just because Apple has released a new line of computers doesn’t mean that EMU is going to be willing to cough up the money for what I want. But I will keep fingers crossed.
