New Apple gear

by Volker Weber

Apple updates the MacBook Pros to the Merom (a.k.a. Core 2 Duo) processor, where due duo probably sounds very funny to Italians. :-) The update was long overdue. What I find interesting is that the battery life actually goes down by 30 minutes for the 15" model. Same old design.


An interesting accessory is the Magsafe Airline Power Adapter, which unfortunately does not work in a car. I want one.


Now what does "duo due" mean to an italian?

"pair two" according to Babelfish...

"due duo" (the correct one :) doesn't mean anything different from "2 duo" but it sounds so bad!

Thanks Marco, I was making too many Freudian connections :-)
