New MacBook Pro / Thunderbolt Sections Live in Apple Site

Apple has just altered their website to contain a section "introducing Thunderbolt". This is Apple's marketing name for the new Intel Light Peak technology. The Thunderbolt port is a new I/O technology that is capable of providing ten watts of power and acting as a USB or FireWire slot. It can also connect to Gigabit Ethernet or Fibre Channel networks.

Any Mini DisplayPort display will plug into a Thunderbolt port, as can an HDMI, DVI or VGA display with no additional adapter. File transfer speeds are roughly 20 times faster than USB 2.0 and roughly ten times as fast as USB 3.0.

Apple has also updated their website with the new MacBook Pro line. It includes 13", 15" and 17" machines. The prices range from $1199 to $1799 all the way on up to $2499. The 15" and 17" models have Intel Core i7 quad-core processors and the 13" model has a dual-core i5 or i7 processor. All models have one Thunderbolt port.

Graphics come from AMD Radeon on the 15" and 17" models and are billed as being 3x faster than the last generation cards. FaceTime HD is also confirmed for the new Pros, every model will be able to make high definition video calls through the same interface you're familiar with on your iPhone 4.

So there we go. The wait is over. Apple's store is still down, but that state of affairs won't last long.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
