MacBook Pro first look

Computerworld has posted a new first look at the MacBook Pro, offering an overview of the new features along with some real-world observations, including overall performance gains, improved AirPort reception, the lack of an internal modem and FireWire 800, the high-res built-in iSight camera, and Apple's innovative MagSafe connector to avoid damage caused by the power cord connection. The article also notes forthcoming adapter cards for Apple's new 34mm ExpressCard slot, which replaces the PC card slot currently found on most PowerBooks: "But for those who need the faster data transfer speeds available with FireWire 800, other offerings are on the way: I saw a prototype Belkin FireWire 800 ExpressCard 34 model that should ship by the time the MacBook Pro does. I've also been in contact with the ExpressCard standards group and am waiting for a list of manufacturers that will have cards in the 34mm flavor for the MacBookPro. I've heard from sources that several manufacturers are readying GPRS/EDGE and CDMA/EVDO cards for road warriors."
