Intel Macs Look Appealing

I have looked a couple of times at the new Intel Macs at the local Apple Store. Last night I got a little demo of one while at the local ruby brigade. The power adapter is a great little feature that I had overlooked. I don’t know how many times I shift my Powerbook and if the plug shifts slightly, I am running off the battery. A power cord with the magnet appears to be a great idea.

Next, I got to see Parallels in action. It is very cool. I don’t use Windows much (mainly for testing that other browser), but it would be handy just to switch over to it. The idea of running Linux on it also sounds appealing. Just the fact that there is no emulation makes it so much faster.

Maybe if I don’t drive for a month, I can save enough money to purchase one.
