I've been a Mac user for a few years (keep promising myself that I'll return to Linux one day), so I was looking forward to the announcement of new Macs. But I obviously missed something because I'm not really impressed with what I've seen. No button on the track-pad? No 1900x1200 resolution? Slightly improved performance. But gone is the metal screen surround, to be replaced by black plastic?! I'm not sure what I expected from Apple, but it wasn't this. Plus, maybe the thing will look better when viewed up close rather than through a web page. If the new design does get around the erosion problem then it'll be worth an upgrade eventually.
