MacWorld Keynote a little Ho-Hum for me. You?

I don't know, maybe I'm missing something here, but overall, the announcements are a bit ho-hum for me.

Super thin laptop, ok, but I would have preferred a mini laptop, something smaller like the size of a portable DVD player.

Movie downloads, ok Netflix was already doing that.

Time Capsule, ok the Mac Mini re-branded as something else

Am I missing something here. Haven't seen the entire keynote yet, but nothing really jumps out and says "Dang! I have to have that!"

Mac Pro (8 core) RAM available on 3rd party sites

While spec'ing a new Mac Pro (8 core) system today, I found that RAM is now available at 3rd party sites. At it's almost 50% less than Apple's pricing.

4GB RAM at Crucial - $269

4GB RAM through Apple Store with Mac Pro - $500 has the same RAM for $229, though they only list the 3.0ghz as the top of the line machine, not the 3.2Ghz so I would check with them before purchase.

Other World Computing ( has their own RAM for $249.99

Nice to see the 3rd party sites have caught up with the new Mac Pro's as Apple has always charged a premium for their RAM. Personally I purchase all our RAM from Crucial as it was recommended to me about 4 years ago and we've never had an issue with their products.

MacWorld Mini-Laptops? You heard it here before!

The big buzz leading into tomorrow's keynote speech from Steve Jobs at MacWorld is the potential announcement of a mini-laptop, possibly along the size of a portable DVD player or smaller.

Just a reminder that we have discussed this very scenario back in March of 2007 right here on this blog!

Back then it was just a "what if" question. Now it's possibly a reality in less than one year from that entry. I'm really curious to see if our discussion turns out to be a winner tomorrow!

Professional Video Editor, Producer, Creative Director, Director since 1990.

Creative Director for Georgia-Pacific and GP Studios, Atlanta. Former Owner / Operator of Biscardi Creative Media. The show you knew us best for was "Good Eats" on the Food Network. I developed the HD Post workflow and we also created all the animations for the series.
