There was something every road warrior will be interested in seeing. Steve Jobs also announce the new Intel-based laptop, the MacBook Pro. The MacBook sports a 15.4 inch widescreen display and is driven by either a 1.67 or 1.83 GHZ Intel Core Duo. This laptop should be really smooth operating and good looking.
