1:12 The 13 inch notebook also gets the new battery and the SD card slot. (The battery is not replacable, I believe). Can also expand to 8GB, 500 GB storage, backlit keyboard. Firewire 800 slot gets a huge cheer. Also being called a MacBook pro. Starts at $1,199. That’s less expensive than the 13 inch aluminum that it replaces. Up to $1,499 for the top of the line specs. Available today.
1:11 Also new 17 inch with faster processor and $300 lower price. Both shipping today.
1:08 Still talking about the new MacBook. 60 percent brighter screen. Dropped the PCI slot, replaced with SD photo card slot. Up to 3.06 GHz Dual Core. Up to 8 GB memory. Up to 500 GB hard drive or 256 GB solid state. Starts at $1,699 (but not with all those specs). Shows a graphic with the breakdown.
1:05 Scalet and Forestall will follow, but Schiller starts with the Mac. Talks about aluminum unibodies. Insanely thin and light. Customers couldn’t be happier. We don’t want to stop. Showing brand new version of 15 inch MacBook Pro. Unibody. New battery lithium polymer, like 17 inch pro. Up to 7 hours of battery life. 1,000 recharges vs. 300. Five years of life before diminshed battery life — longer than most laptops live.
1:15 $700 price cut on top of the line MacBook Air. These are pretty aggressive price cuts, but they don’t offer anything to compete with $300 netbooks.
Awesome, I may get the lap top Ive been asking my parents for the last three years lol.

Finally Quicktime 10. Rebuilt from ground up. Controls fade in and out. Ability to trim and share video. Video timeline gets ooohs. Share to YouTube, MobileMe or iTunes to playback on iPhone.
1:23 Scalet is going over the refinements. Faster. Less space. Smarter cut and paste.
