Apples!

Erin and Madelyn went to an apple farm last weekend. They brought back apple cider and apple butter. Yum. And Erin’s making apple pie for her book club and my parent’s visit this weekend. Double yum.

And there are other other new Apples to look at. LED backlights. NVIDIA chipsets. Nifty aluminum fab process. Black-n-glass iMac look. And it’s really smart that Apple has dropped the price of the older Macbooks to $999. I always wondered what happened to older models on previous releases…

I do wish Intel would name its chips better, and Apple would indicate something more than “Core 2 Duo.” It’s very hard to tell just what processor is in these machines…

Update 10/19: Primate Labs published these benchmarks which include more details about the processors, though the numbers don’t acknowledge the new Nvidia GPUs, which are a considerable upgrade.
