Intel MacBook Is Coming To Town

La La La… Intel Macbook is coming to town? Some of my friend is confused between MacBook and MacBook Pro. When I mentioned MacBook, they thought it’s MacBook Pro. Actually MacBook is an upgrade version is Apple iBook runing Intel processor.

Poor people like me cannot afford to buy a RM8,000-RM10,000 MacBook Pro. So, in order to have a taste on the lastest Intel Apple. I either afford to buy Mac Mini or Mac Book. Mobility is my major concern. So IF I am afford to buy, I definately go for Mac Book ;).

Heard that Apple is going to announce the availability of Intel Based MacBook on 9th May 2006. Sit tight and wait for the annoucement. ๐Ÿ˜€

  1. dude.. no waylah.. i don’t think it’ll be so cheap… RM3.5K? I think it should be in the Rm4.5k + region.. Cos when i bought my iBook G4 800 years ago it was about RM4.4k

  2. hi,

    i don’t find it any great. ๐Ÿ™‚ i rather buy a copy of x86 macosx. going to install 1 now. ๐Ÿ™‚ just bought my 3rd 250gb sata for this purpose.! ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. i fiddled with it when it came out in australia. pretty impressive i’d say. well i dun think macbook pro is that mobile.. if you want mobile.. err.. go powerbook 12′. apple notebooks aren’t the lightest in the market but they look sleek alright. ๐Ÿ™‚

    yeah i think the price’d be somewhere aroun rm8500-10,000. even with a student discount card, (After converting to RM), the cheapest macbook pro i can get is like Rm7790. Sigh… no $$

    but i suggest if u guys are wanting to get the macbook pro because of running windows, wait till like probably august. leopard os will be out by then, and i think tat’s when apple’s officially supporting the dual boot thing.

  4. seng: good luck with your x86 mac os x (if such a thing exists for non-mac hardware).

    paul: be prepared to spend around 5k (for more ram, and a new bag — your current bag sure won’t fit one!)

    I will wait slightly longer for the next MacBook Pro. wwdc beacons, and i have just received my invite (if time and budget allows, i should go attend it… sigh…)

    But you won’t regret getting a Mac. whatever flavour.


  5. jerryWho: i have done the installation. it is running pretty slow within vmware, about 20% of my original amd64 power. by the way, don’t you know that mac osx is based on freebsd kernel which can be compiled into various cpu architectures.? ๐Ÿ™‚ the latest mac runs intel core duo mobile cpu. ๐Ÿ™‚

    yup. it is x86-32 bit binary cpus “insided”. ๐Ÿ™‚
