Seeing they have upgraded the iMac line now, I hope Macbook and Macbook Pro processors will be updated soon.

Yo, dude! That price is in USD! You were looking at the US site. Check out the SG site. I did a similar config a few days ago and it costs a fortune. :sweat:

It's only a backup program - but with a typical Apple 'cool' GUI attached. I've got the 10.5 developer preview, in my eyes there is nothing really special about it.
Every now and then, it snap-shots your disk and stores the history somewhere - preferably on another disk drive, then has this silly 'time machine' GUI for rolling back through the history to select what you want. Really the only special thing is the GUI - which hopefully will allow novices to do backups properly.
I'm rather worried that my large mac user base at work will discover it and put the backup history on their network drive and use timemachine as a backup method instead of working off the remote server volumes. I'll have a server full of time machine image files instead of usable data files. (But it's probably better than a server full of 'Macintosh HD' folders :), as I think Timemachine is smart about how it stores the differences between backups.

I wonder if you can read the snapshots back on a DIFFERENT mac from the one that created them ?


The only thing of use to me is virtual screens (spaces), something my Linux workstation has had for years as standard. (And there were 3rd party addons for MacOSX that added the feature anyway).

The rest is just bug fixes and normal product enhancements.

An ohh, the developer preview is slow. But then they usually are - it's still full of debugging and diagnostic code and hasn't been optimised yet.

Somebody also one said, 640K of ram is enough for anybody.

If you get the Mac Pro, make it go, imagine having 20 D2X files on each ACD opened and running doing your editing!! Your wedding shots can finish processing in one day thanks to 16GB of RAM on a Mac Pro with 8 30" ACDs!
