n.b lion wont be seen as a big step update by Apple as SL was, so it will probably cost around £100 or so for a retail copy I guess although Apple are a bit vague on under the bonnet stuff. just some new pointless features as far as I can make out, a new apple apps store? what's that.. sounds more like a skin change or something, so mac computers act like iPads, dunno have to wait and see but it sounds irritating already..

I haven't seen anything about only 64 bit support, be very surprised if that's the case.

That was my thought after the keynote, no way the 10V trackpad will be suitable for Lion, hell, I don't think it's even suitable for Leopard! But for people who almost always use a mouse because of this anyway it would still be worth trying to run Lion. However, my suspicion is that there will be a lot of Mini's on the market soon as the new 11" Air with a fullsize trackpad is really way more suited for it.

I'm still kind of a noob here, but what would the practicality be of picking up a magic mouse or trackpad from Apple be? Is there any reason to believe they would be incompatible, or would you be able to use all of the multitouch capabilities and gestures?

I honestly think the gestures and multitouch on a desktop is just a gimmick that Apple can get away with due to it's success with touch screens. But who knows.

I'll admit that full trackpad compatibility would be kind of nice but coming from a Windows world the way the Dell Mini 10V's trackpad works with OSX is fine for me

what you have to remember in all this is ergonomics pliant with user memory, you can get as clever as you want but we are not space monkeys.. simple is best believe me.

hey did some one buy this site after?

hey to expand on this..

OSX is a result of a development company called "next" and coded by a guy called Avie Tevanian who used as a base the unix underpinning binary, codesigned to the so called 'Mach' binary a new company called 'next step' took this forward blah blah .. when this binary changes so will the descriptive OSX change.. it's inception is hardware based more than anything as it is not + or - irreducible, Tevanian says that he sees another 15 years life of his cool expandable kernel (he left apple (next step) two years ago.

mathematics lie with in the real advances of computing, that's why we need to understand the laws of minuscule. for example the fastest computer can't process faster than an earth worm but with 100000 x the energy or to put it another way our brian produces less than the power needed to light a light bulb but manages conciseness.

I totally agree with Turing that our state of being is a delusion solely based on computing power achieved.
