Bare bones gets you:

Retina Display
2.3GHz quad-core i7
8GB RAM
GeForce GT 650M 1GB
256GB flash storage
7-hour battery
0.71" thin, 4.46 lbs

I spent over two grand on my six-year-old MacBook Pro. Next-gen Pro looks pretty good I have to say.

Dictation program, no demo though. System wide availability. Even works with MS Word.

New Safari; Twitter integration. This is getting boring with features that I don't use, and I'm zoning out. I'm out of updating. Unless something epic happens.

iCloud tabs, so if you have a tab open on iPad, you can open up the same tab on your desktop or laptop or iphone. That's cool. Tab navigation via gestures.

Thanks for taking over Fox. I though it was an ok keynote. I give it a B- rating.

New laptop looks cool but way too pricey. I'm itching for a new laptop though.

I was really hoping for some iMac news.

Me too. My 2007 model crashed this past december and I've been living off of that junky laptop I mentioned earlier.

No iPhone 5? Wow. But I suppose an iPhone announcement would get its own dedicated keynote.

Wait, Apple never uses another companies ideas!

Google probably stole it from Apple then went back in time.

"Why can't I have a notification icon on my status bar when I have a missed call or text message?"

For real? iPhone can't do this?

Wow...

The current version of iOS does support lock screen notifications for several of the built-in and third party apps. Text messages and missed calls are shown as well as calendar (including google) notifications. Heck, even my Alarmed! reminder app shows its notifications right on the lock screen. I do wish that new mail showed there though.

That aside, anyone know if the new MacBook Pros have user-serviceable hard drive, memory, and battery? My current MacBook Air has those components soldered right onto the boards, so there is no upgrading them later. I got the feeling that is the direction Apple would like to take the Pros as well...

Well that's not entirely true. There are notifications for missed calls/texts on your lock screen.

Huh. You know, I've never even noticed that somehow. I was just about to say, "Nuh-uh!" but I honestly have no idea, so I'm sure you're right on this. lol, so strange that I haven't noticed it.

R. Nickerson says:
Sure. I see what you mean, and yeah, it does not do that specific thing. My point was to address the comment that the lock screen does not contain notifications. I guess it would be nice to have some persistant notifications as you describe, but then I might get annoyed seeing them all the time until I manually go in and acknowledge/dismiss them. What would be great is if I could choose the applications whose notifications persisted, and let the others fall off the lock screen normally.

P.S. - Somebody tell me if I can swap out the HD and memory on a new MacBook Pro with the retina display! :-)

How well is your second app doing? (You do only have a couple so far, right?)

Apple made iDisk in 2000. No need for Google to time-warp to borrow that idea.
