Posted on the June 11th, 2007 under Apple,Interesting by

Just a reminder, if you are a Apple fan, don’t forget the WWDC 2007 Keynote by our favorite fellow Steve Jobs is today.   I am not positive what is going to be announced, I am sure they will be covering the iPhone and Leopard. The keynote starts at 1pm east coast time.

Some places to catch the live keynote coverage:  (audio)

Well Apple has updated MacBook Pro with a LED Display, faster CPU, and some other goodies.  Might be time for me to finally get a Mac Laptop, those are some impressive specs.

New Apple Macbook Pro due out soon? LED Display and Santa Rosa Intel CPU?

According to the rumors a new Apple Macbook Pro is due out soon.   I’m hoping it will be updated to the new Intel chipset along with a few other updated features. I have been waiting every since the release of the first Intel Macbook pro for a two button mouse, and I hope this will be part of the update.  Even with the MacPro I have now, I use a two button mouse, and don’t see why they wouldn’t offer that ability on the laptop.  The rumors are as follows:  LED Display, Santa Rosa Intel cpu.  We shall see after WWDC, which is just about a week away.  I’m due for a new laptop, come on Apple, WOW me!
