In a quick note, Daniel Terdiman posted to the News.com the incredible fact that, in the day of the introduction of the first Intel-based mac, the share price closed at $80.86.

… t’s pretty unlikely that Wall Street was able to manipulate Apple’s share price, given the thousands upon thousands of people who no doubt bought and sold the stock Tuesday. But it’s little coincidences like this that make technies and geeks sit up and take notice. Or at least I and the friend who pointed this out to me did.

The Macworld expo had today its greatest event in Steve Jobs’ keynote. Among several other announcement, Jobs presented what is certainly the most powerful laptop Apple has even created.

The new laptop, which is also the first Mac laptop using an Intel process, has a dual core processing unit which has almost four time as much processing capacity as the Power PC G4 that are used by the current generation of power books.

The MacBook, as the new laptop is called, has also more innovations, such as embedded iSight camera (with the double of the definition of current iSight models), and a larger and brighter screen. All this enclosed in a metal case that is only one inch thick.

According to the Scottsman:

COMPUTER giant Apple last night unveiled a “revolutionary” new laptop computer which it says is four to five times faster than its predecessor.
The MacBook Pro is just one inch thick and weighs 5.6lb. Its increased speed is down to a new Intel chip, the first time Apple has used Intel processors. The chip will be rolled out to all new Mac machines this year.

It turns out that Kevin Rose predictions were remarkably correct. It may be good advice to hear what this guy writes the next time…

So we have the MacBook, iWord and iLife (although this is a no-brainer), Remote control and FM receiver, and iPhoto, missing only to mention the iWeb app.
