Yes, exactly quad core. (that should be MacPro not MBP Bob
Octo Core Xeons are due this quarter...
As are more efficient Core 2 Quad mobile CPUs....
and the ATI GPU options also annoy me for the Mac Pro. For the iMac I understand NVIDIAs mobile gpu's are sub standard just now, but they have the fastest desktop one, so why deny those who have the money to ability to use them!? They might just work if you bought one and stuck it in, but I dont know many people willing to rist £350+ to try it out!
I like Macs for "life" stuff. Using the internet, music, IM, e-mail - its just a more chilled out experience.
They just seem underpowered for what you pay and at this point in time i don't think many people can afford "style" at the cost of performance these days.
This along with the MacBookPro battery fiasco has totally put me of buying a mac - and i was so tempted to get a MacBookPro as a laptop!
