The Last Apple Keynote at Macworld is Over

It's over. No dramatic announcements. New versions of iLife and iWork. A new 17" MacbookPro with the rumored non-removable battery. Very interesting. It comes with 4GB of RAM. If you want Apple to upgrade the RAM to 8GB then it will cost an extra $1200!! Ouch! Don't do it! I'm sure macsales.com will have a much better deal. Also announced, music from the iTunes Store will be DRM free and said music can be purchased using an iPhone in 3G mode (previously only available in wi-fi mode).

Not announced... updates to the MacMini, the iMac, and the MacPro. Hopefully those will follow soon.

For some odd reason, they always charge more than an arm and a leg for RAM. With my Imac, the stepup was $700 to go from 2-4gb, but aftermarket cost me $100 total. Strange really!
