Steve Jobs also announced that both Intel and Apple are ready to begin shipping the Intel powered Macs. They begin taking orders today. One thing that caught my attention was that the PowerBook has been redesigned and renamed to the MacBook Pro. It includes a built-in iSight, the Intel Core Duo processor (2 processors in 1) with speeds up to 4X faster, and a magnetic power adapter cleverly named MagSafe. The price tag is a little steep at $1999, but as always with Apple, the quality of the product won’t let you down. They begin shipping in February.
