Apple's New OS Runs on Same Old Hardware

Last week I got you all hot and bothered about Leopard, the new Mac OS. If you recall, I wondered if Apple was going to make any exciting hardware announcements. I've been waiting for the new OS and some hot new hardware so I can plunk down some of my spare cash down on a Mac laptop, or even the solid-state sub-notebook they've been teasing us about.

But no. A quick search of Apple.com reveals that the hardware line hasn't changed any of its spots. It is the basically same overpriced line they've been selling since they moved from PowerPC to Intel.

While that may save me from shelling out a grand or two for a new machine, it still doesn't make me happy. I guess I'll have to wait till next year to get all hip with a new Mac. As David, my Mac guru points out, Jobs usually trots out new hardware at his annual MacExpo keynote.

This is what Apple has for hardware as of today.
