First on the list are refreshed PowerBook models. Moody announced two new systems -- 15-inch and 17-inch PowerBooks. The 15-inch model now features a screen with 1440 x 900 resolution, the same as the previous generation 17-inch model. The 17-inch model now features a 1680 x 1050 pixel display -- the same resolution as Apple's 20-inch Cinema Display

The new PowerBooks sport 22 percent greater battery life, standard DVD-RW "SuperDrives" and built-in support for Apple's gargantuan 30-inch Cinema HD Display, according to Moody. Prices start at $1,499 for the 2-inch model, $1,999 for the 15-inch model and $2,499 for the 17-inch model. All systems are shipping today.

Apple has also updated its Power Mac G5 system, which Moody calls the "system of choice for creative professionals that need power."

The new systems feature dual-core PowerPC processors and a new system architecture that can support up to 16GB of 533MHz DDR2 RAM. They can also hold up to 1 terabyte (TB) of internal Serial ATA (SATA) storage, and are the first Power Macs to feature PCI Express (PCIe) expansion slots. DDR2 RAM and PCIe are both featured on Apple's recently refreshed iMac G5 system.

The Quad will be available in early November.

Uffa però è brutto così, ma non ci sono siti che fanno una diretta testuale anche in inglese? (o canali IRC).


Apple's vice president of Applications Marketing, Rob Schoeben, next took the stage to talk about some of the challenges now facing digital photographers: Culling through media cards, retouching images, delivering on tight deadlines.

"Post production is a seamless extension of the creative process, not an afterthought," said Schoeben. He explained that photographers lack a solution like Final Cut Pro. Enter Aperture, Apple's "first all in one post production tool for photographers."

Built specifically for pro photographers, Aperture features and end-to-end RAW workflow, and makes RAW as easy to work with as JPEG, according to Schoeben.

A feature called Stacks lets photographers group sequeneces of shots together based on the time between shutter clicks. The software features a full-screen workspace and a completely editable environment that can span multi-image displays.

A multi-image viewer lets you check images side-by side, up to 10 or 12 on a side, at magnifications up to 800 percent.

Aperture also sports essential tools like red-eye reduction, cropping, straightening and more, and features a non-destructive workflow and versioning capabilitie

Aperture users can quickly create and print comp layouts, and can customize proof sheets and contact sheets.
