MacBook Pro can now be upgraded to 1-Terabyte

Just like everyone else I have been waiting for something new to report about Apple Computers (other than the iPad). In other words I am waiting for newer, faster processors in the MacBook Pro line of laptops (all the other Apple products are probably of great interest to someone, but they don’t mean much to me).

Apple Macintosh PowerBook Duo

I didn’t ever own a Duo myself but a friend of mine had the full Duo System, the Desktop Dock, several Mini Docks, third party battery chargers, external drives, everything he could get his hands on.
