I was wondering if anyone had any info on when OS X Leapord is comming out and if Apple will be comming out with new computers to go along with Leapord. Do they have DX10 systems in the works? Quad-core iMacs? Whats the skinny?

They will probably just update the iMacs with whatever processor (they use mobile ones in them) is out at the time. So if there is a low power consuming, cool, quad-core processor they will undoubtedly use it.<br />
I believe Leopard is coming at the end of January but don't quote me on that one. *Supposedly* it will have a built in windows kernel so you will be able to use windows programs directly (without rebooting) it is just a rumor though. But I doubt that there will be DX10 unless you use vista through boot camp. They announced that the openGL 2.1 will double performance under leopard so games that use that will be better on macs I suppose...<br />

I don't know if you looked at the site for leopard but they have this cool thing called the time machine and you can pretty much get anything back that you ever deleted. it looks delicious <img src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" class="inlineimg" /> <a href="http://www.apple.com/macosx/leopard/index.html" target="_blank">site</a>

</div>I know OS X would not have DX10 built-in (since DX is a Microsoft product), but I was wondering if they would update the video cards to DX10 compatible ones. Also, do you have a source for your rumor about the integrated kernal?

Oh I misunderstood your question, Apple doesn't normally use the top of the line graphics cards, the x1600 and 7600gt are the fastest cards you can get right now as far as iMacs go. They will probably upgrade the video cards as long as there are mobile versions of it, and maybe implement a way to upgrade your own video card. <br />

<a href="http://macdailynews.com/index.php/weblog/comments/9324/" target="_blank">link</a> again, it is speculation and it was written a while ago.

I can't wait for leopard since Revision B of the Macbooks will probably be on it and I want a new laptop!

Do you have anything more recent? Or is anything related to this going to be 100% speculation? Do we know anything for sure?

Well, I know that Apple likes the parallels type system more than it's own boot camp. I am pretty sure I read that apple is pushing it more also (I can't find the link but if I see it again I will post it). So it would lead one to believe that they would either buy up the parallels creator or make their own version.<br />
<br />
But it is basically 100% speculation as of now. But hopefully apple will get together with the Parallels creator and make something great. <img src="/images/smilies/grouphug.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Grouphug" class="inlineimg" /> <br />
<br />
I have found a bunch of articles saying they are updating bootcamp and whatnot so that a better version of it will be in leopard, but I personally think that a parallels system or integrated windows kernel would be much better. If it isn't leopard that gets the windows integration it will be the next version for sure.<img src="/images/smilies/thumb.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Thumb" class="inlineimg" />

I see new Macbooks when Intel can pump out more Merom cores. Leopard is Q2-Q3 '07. Anything else is 100 percent pure speculation.
