And Now For Some Other Apple Store News...

"On Wednesday Apple marked the demise of the MacBook. No, not its entire line of laptops, which made up 70 percent of the Macs sold in the company's just-completed third quarter. Getting the chop is the $999 white plastic MacBook, which has held down the low-cost end of Apple's laptop line for years."

Well this one was kind of a no brainer wasn't it? But you can still get it in the refurbished store if you really want one. But no reason for it (unless you are really nostalgic for that clunky style) is there? That isn't all that changed in the Apple Store. They also debuted a new Mac Mini, with the obligatory Thunderbolt connection, as well as a new Cinema Display. This Thunderbolt display really is slick, with all the connectors you need. I'm thinking this may be my next purchase as it would go really well with my MacBook Air.

"Apple has leaked an upcoming LED Cinema Display on its website that boasts a Thunderbolt connection. The new display looks exactly like the current model, but features Thunderbolt I/O technology on the back."

If you have a need for speed, this is going to tickle your fancy.

Apple Update for Cinema Displays

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple Software (iPhone/iPod Touch)" @ 10:00 AM

"On Wednesday, Apple released LED Cinema Display iSight Firmware Update 1.0, a fix for an issue with the built-in iSight camera on the LED Cinema Display not being recognized by some applications."

You can download the update here, or get more info at the Apple site. Not really much else to say, if you have one and been having problems with getting it recognized, then this update is for you.

Jason Snell Hates the 24" LED Cinema Display

Posted by Vincent Ferrari in "Other Apple Hardware" @ 11:00 AM

"Apple’s new 24″ LED Cinema Display suffers the fatal flaw of “ridiculous, terrible glare,” according to Jason Snell, editor of Macworld, who informed his Twitter followers Monday he’s putting his monitor back in the box and returning it to Macworld Labs. Snell has spent his professional career as a writer covering Apple and, despite the presumed objectivity of his position as the editor of one of the larger, more recognizable mainstream media brands associated with the Cupertino computer maker, likely wouldn’t give up on such a major piece of Apple hardware unless he felt it was poorly executed."

I'm not commenting on this. I still think that the criticisms of the glossies are way overreaching, but I figured I'd post this just to prove that I don't only post stuff I agree with. Incidentally, I have seen the 24" Cinema Display at the Apple Store, where the glare is pretty unbearable on all of the glossy displays, and the Cinema Display is no better or worse than any of them. Then again, I've heard since I got my MBP that I would hate the glare on that one, too, and I find it completely tolerable.

I'm Vincent Ferrari, and I like glossy displays.

New Cinema Display Reviewed by Engadget

Posted by Vincent Ferrari in "Other Apple Hardware" @ 12:00 PM

http://www.engadget.com/2008/12/15/...display-review/

"Prior to October 14th of this year, Apple hadn't updated its Cinema Display line in years. Literally. There's no doubt that this refresh is entirely overdue, and we still hold that Apple should've taken the opportunity to refresh its now-archaic 20 and 30-inch counterparts. All that aside, this writeup is about the new 24-incher, a LED-backlit beauty that doesn't mind being called glossy and is clearly partial to notebooks. The screen packs the same 1,920 x 1,200 resolution that was on the 23-incher it replaced, but ditches that DVI connector in favor of the newer, less widely adopted DisplayPort. So, is the newfangled screen worth $899? Read on to find out."

Engadget puts the new 24" Cinema Display through its paces and finds plenty to like and dislike about it. I won't steal their thunder by quoting too much about it, but I think I can interpret the bottom line thusly: It's a great screen, albeit glossy, with great sound and neat connectivity options (read: the MagSafe port) but at the same time they don't like that it uses only MiniDP rendering it useless for everything but the new line of notebooks. For more in depth explanations / detail, do check out the review. It's quite thorough.

As for whether or not I'll be buying one? I honestly don't think so. At least not until the price comes out of the stratosphere.
