Jim Dalrymple of The Loop shares his thoughts on the just-announced MacBook and MacBook Pro models, and explains why there is more than meets the eye in terms of power. The biggest addition is Thunderbolt; Jim walks us through the exciting capabilities of this new interface, what you’ll be able to do with it, and why it doesn’t make your existing hardware obsolete. On the software side, Apple released FaceTime for the desktop…for $.99. Jim addresses the furor over the price and why it is largely meaningless.
