Mac Leopard

I am sooo drooling! Oh, to get a new MacBook Pro with Leopard. Or, even a Dual G5 with dual-cinema screens using Leopard………

What’s cool?

  1. Desktop: The Dock now has a “Stacking” feature, which de-clutters your desktop, and opens all those apps and files in an animated fan, as it opens to your desktop.
  2. Finder: The Finder application is now more like “iTunes”. But, instead of just music or videos, it’s now all your files.
  3. File Preview: You can now preview files without actually opening them. Step through multi-page documents, or view videos, just by the preview.
  4. Time Machine: A VERY, very cool way to backup and restore your files.
  5. Spaces: For those Linux users who loves using their virtual desktop, Mac now has it’s virtual desktop, and they call it “Spaces”
  6. Boot Camp: Boot Camp comes default. This allows you to boot XP on a Mac machine (No, that does not include the XP license, just the ability to boot to it)

    I am planning to get a macbook pro this month, although there are roumers about an upgrade with the new processor up to 2.8 GHz

    Sweeeet! That would totally rock. Make sure to post your thoughts!

    I’m still putting away pennies. Dunno when I’ll get one, but I would imagine it would have something to do with a large animal, and flying in the air.

    Just ordered a iMAC 24″ screen 2.8GHz for our marketing department. Installed VMWare Fusion so now it runs MAC os and Windows XP seamlessly. I was very impressed with VMWare Fusion and its only $70 with a $20 rebate!

    Saaweeet! So, now the question is… which is faster/better… Parallels or VMWare Fusion? What made you choose VMWare, Kevin?

  5. Kevin October 25, 2007 at 12:54 pm

    I haven’t tried Parallels. But I have a friend that works for Universal Studios and they tested all the different versions of virtual ware and decided VMWare was the best.

    That is awesome, Kevin! Thanks for sharing!

    I must be in a dream world where other Cisco enthusiasts get excited for Mac products. I seem to be the only one I know. Ha.

    Now I just hope they announce something in Janurary in terms of an update for the Macbook Pros.

    Thanks for the VMWare tip. Still haven’t decided if I’ll do that or dual boot.
