First new Intel-based Macs announced

From a running commentary at Macworld, Steve Jobs has just announced the very first Intel-based Mac. It will be an iMac using a dual-core Pentium-M (Yonah) chip. It should be significantly faster (and dual-core to boot) than the previous iMacs and available at the same price.

Looks like there will also be a MacBook Pro laptop model with integrated iSight camera. It will also be based upon the “Core Duo” (dual-core Pentium-M “Yonah”). Should be interesting! I’m not sure if I’d spend the money on revision 1, as Apple typically does alot of tweaking after finding the problems with rev1 stuff, but hopefully there will be some thorough reviews from people who actually buy them

  1. I saw something on Bloomberg today announcing that Windows will be releasing office based software for the Mac.
