More on Orbitz’s more-expensive Mac options

jeffmiller asked: Aren’t they just listing the fancier hotels first for mac users; they aren’t actually showing different prices for the same hotels, right?

» SFB says: To be clear, yes. It’s not so much an increase in price but an effort to lead you to more expensive hotels by default. It sounds like the cheaper options are still there but you have to work harder to find them. — Ernie @ SFB

Apple’s new MacBook Pro makes us long for an upgrade
Admit it. They’re MacBook Pros. Of course you want to have sex with these machines. That said – the changes in the new MBP lineup appear to be under the hood rather than cosmetic in nature, with a way faster processor and graphics card, a much nicer camera, and something called ThunderBolt, a potential USB replacement that Apple says is 12 times faster than Firewire and 20 times faster than the ubiquitous port technology. It makes our current unibody Mac seem like a piece of crap we picked up from the scrap heap two years ago. source
