At the end of his keynote address, Jobs also revealed a Core Duo-powered MacBook Pro notebook that's apparently four to five times faster than the PowerBook G4. The MacBook Pro weighs 5.4lbs and has a 15.4" widescreen LCD that's supposedly bright as Apple's Cinema Display. However, MacBook Pros won't ship until February, and the 15.4" model looks like the only available size. The lack of a smaller option is disappointing, especially given the number of slick 12" and 13" Core Duo notebooks that were on display at CES.
Mac OS X 10.4.4 is apparently running natively on Apple's Intel-based systems, and new versions of iLife and iWork use universal binaries. Apple's professional-grade apps won't make the move to universal binaries until March, though.
