I so need to get me one of these babies: MacBook Pro.

The specs are quite awesome:

  • 15.4-inch TFT display with 1440x900 resolution
  • 1.83GHz Intel Core Duo processor with 2MB shared L2 Cache
  • 667MHz frontside bus
  • 1GB (single SO-DIMM) 667MHz DDR2 SDRAM (PC2-5300)
  • 100GB 5400rpm Serial ATA hard drive
  • Slot-load SuperDrive (DVD±RW/CD-RW)
  • ATI Mobility Radeon X1600 with 256MB GDDR3 memory
  • iSight camera
  • 801.11g and Bluetooth 2.0
  • Gigabit Ethernet
  • Apple Remote
  • iLife 06

Too bad I don’t have $2500 to spare right now… Let’s hope for a big tax refund this year.

Still, I’m somewhat surprised that Apple gave up on the PowerBook brand that they spent a lot of time on developing. But then again I have no doubt that the new MacBook brand will catch on very quickly…

Update: Maybe I should hold off. Based on this inside scoop, some really cool features might be coming our way soon…
