Hi,


I wonder whether anyone has one of these. I thought Apple had shipped only 2 or 2.18 Mhz machines. Does anyone know what the specs of all shipping MacBook Pros are?

Hi,

I'm at a loss as to whether anyone has put out any way to modify the GUI on Intel Macs. Clearly Shapeshifter isn't out of them yet. But is there any other way now?
