Apple Stores don’t carry the 17″ Macbook Pro with the i7 Chip

May 16, 2010 in Uncategorized | Comments (0)


Seems odd. I guess they’re standardizing on the fifteen inch model, which you can get in i5 or i7, but they only have i5’s in the seventeens off the shelf. The web site is the same way – i7 is an upgrade for the seventeen inch machine.

Actually I did find one store that had one, but it had the matte display, which is also an upgrade. I wonder if someone ordered it and didn’t claim it.

Anyway, if you want a seventeen inch i7 with a 7200 rpm disk, better get on the web site. You won’t find it in the store.

Things for iPhone

Things is my favorite GTD tool for the Mac. It will be even better now with Things for iPhone. They got their iPhone version ready (sans a few features) in time for the iPhone 3G release, and even hit the top 25 apps list. I already paid the money for the app – I’ve been using Things on the Mac ever since it showed up in beta, so I was happy to throw them a few bucks in support. I’ll license it as soon as they’re ready to take my money.

The iPhone application looks pretty good, although it is pretty much a straight up iPhone list management tool. It will be better once they get tags implemented, and of course synchronization with the Mac version. I will wait patiently. Things is a fantastic tool.
