Isn't Apple truning more into a turnkey system builder and OS designer now? These new apple computers are basically PC's that run Mac OS. They are now kind of like a high end HP or Dell that makes it's own operating system and production software.

Ironically Thomas, that's kind of what Apple's approach has been for quite some time. By building both the hardware and software, the integration is very tight. I didn't own a Mac until a year ago and it's an absolute joy to work with. However, I still needed a Windows based laptop for things such as Canon's DVPC recorder and a few other apps so I bought a nice Compaq last April.

This development will indeed move the Macbook Pro to the top of my list for next portable computer purchase.

Well, that's good that it is working at full speed and not emulation speed a'la Virtual PC. This is GREAT news for us video guys and especially for me as I am a videogamer as well ;).

So it looks like Serious Magic won't have to get too serious with a Mac OS version of DVRACK or Ultra 2 and Adobe users won't have to wait too long either, though if Leopard is supposed to come out later this year to earlyt next year, it may come out at the same time the Universal version of After Effects does but oh well!
