Macworld’s MacBook chat wrap
Macworld hosted its first-ever live chat on Friday, with Editorial Director Jason Snell and Senior News Editor Jonathan Seff taking questions about the MacBook and other new Apple hardware. Here are highlights from Fridayâ€™s event. Among the topics discussed.
On the reason for the price difference between the white and black MacBooks:
Itâ€™s not always cheap to be beautiful and fashionable.â€”Jason Snell.
On the likelihood that the next-generation of Intel chips will produce lighter weight, longer-lasting laptops:
I doubt that the weight will dramatically change. The battery life might improve a bit, but battery technology also improves. I love small laptops, so I hope Apple comes out with something smaller or lighter than the MacBook, but Iâ€™m not confident that itâ€™ll happen. That said, the new generation of chips should be pretty impressive when they arrive. But isnâ€™t that always the way?â€”Jason Snell
