Apple SMP & Aqua White

August 13, 2002

Apple introduced a new case and three new dual processor systems today. I saw the case on a couple of the Apple rumor sites, and while I like having the speaker at the top of the case, I actually like my Quicksilver case better.

I think Apple going SMP is a good idea. They’re having to compete with x86 systems on at least the workstation level. And a PowerPC SMP would seem to work better using OS X/BSD Unix that a system on x86.

Also, it appears that they’ve changed their navigation graphics to be more in the white aqua style, instead of the gray-ish scheme they’ve had for a while.
