Apple finally pulls the curtain back on Macbook Pro notebook refresh.Apple finally pulls the curtain back on Macbook Pro notebook refresh.

Said notebook refresh brings the 15-inch and 17-inch MacBook Pros over to speedier Intel i5 and i7 chips. According to some early benchmarks these machines are about 50% faster than the previous generation. Sadly, the 13-inch model is still stuck in Core 2 Duo land.

Ten creative and geeky hoodie designs for your viewing pleasure.Ten creative and geeky hoodie designs for your viewing pleasure.

I added 'geeky' to the headline mostly because all of these hoodies are of the Star Wars, comic book or video game variety (not that there's anything wrong with that; I just felt it had to be clarified). Source link also contains purchase links for those who are so inclined. By the way, that R2-D2 hoodie will set you back $92 bucks.
