Happy Friday to everyone out there. If you are from Chicago and reading this
right now. Then you must know that we got some snow on the ground today not
like the great blizzard of 2011. But still you have to go out and use the shovel.
Now onto Friday's daily special the Techy bytes edition.
New Apple computers hitting stores - As we all know whenever you buy a product from
Apple there is a chance that by 6 months or a year after you buy the product the
computer or device that you own will not be relevant. Apple announced on Thursday
a new complete line of Macbook Pro computers. So what is new with the new computer
line, well first and foremost they come prepared with a even faster processor then
the ones that they had before. They now have the new Quad Core CPU's this is first
time that they have incorporated it into the entire Macbook Pro line. Now we all
who deal with computers know that the quad processor is not going to use all
4 processors but it will use only 2 processors, now what Intel has done is when
this happens they have Intel Turbo's Boost 2.0 which when they the other 2
processors are not in use it will still increase the speed of the computer.
Now a new connection that is included in the computer is the Thunderbolt/mini display
connection which is being talked about being the replacement for the USB 3.0 and
will offer a faster connection. And as always the starting point of the entry
level computer is pricy but very reliable my friends. It starts at $1,199 and
goes up if you want a faster computer.
