intelMac ahoy

Apple has announced the first two of their much anticipated new computers running on the Intel® CoreTM Duo processor.

The new iMac and the newly branded MacBook Pro, a replacement for the current flagship PowerBook G4, are two times and four times faster respectively, than their predecessors.

The Intel Core Duo is a dual core chip (two processors engineered onto a single chip), offering almost twice the power of a traditional single processor, but taking up the same space as a single chip.

The iMac range is available in the same 17-inch and 20-inch sizes, and retains most of the trademark features of Apple's design. It also includes a new ATI Radeon X1600 graphics processor, as well as Apple's new iLife 2006 software.

The MacBook Pro comes with an integrated iSight camera and will also feature the Front Row software and remote control seen on the iMac. Apple have made use of its new MagSafe power connection, which magnetically guides the power cord into it socket and disconnects if someone trips over it.

We'll have a review of both machines at the GoodGearGuide as soon as we get our hands on them.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

Brother PocketJet PJ-773 A4 Portable Thermal Printer

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
