Wow, a lot has happened already.

First up is an all-new 15inch MacBook Pro. Includes a brand new display and will also have SD card slot (really didn’t expect that last addition)

fastest notebook they have ever made. Up to 3.06 Dual Core CPU. Up to 8GB of RAM. Up to 500GB 7200RPM HD. Or, 256GB SSD.

Starts at a lower price $1,699

Next up was an update to the 17inch MacBook Pro: 2.8GHz CPU, 500GB HD, 8GB RAM.

13inch MacBook now becomes a MacBook Pro (all aluminums apart from the Air now have that badge.) $1,199

All these updates available now.

Talk then moved on to Snow Leopard, specs and features coming in thick and fast.

Some of the highlights are a new QuickTime interface, Finder is rebuilt, Preview reportedly twice as fast. Exchange support built in (could this do some damage to Windows in the business arena? Have to wait and see). Open CL will take advantage of multiple cores and use graphics cards to share CPU load.

Snow Leopard is available for all Intel Macs past and present. Apple wants everyone to upgrade so the price is just $29 (family pack $49). Awesome price! Snow Leopard will be released in September.
