iPod nano, Mac Pro reviews

PC Magazine has posted a review of Apple's second-generation iPod nano and its recently released Mac Pro, giving each 4.5 stars out of 5. The review notes that the black matte surface of the iPod nano still picks up fingerprints, the new music search feature, but that it has a significantly longer battery life. "When all is said and done, the second-gen iPod nano is an excellent product. It is slim, attractive, sturdy, and easy to use, not to mention the excellent integration with iTunes. But more important, the sound quality is very good (until you push the volume near the limit), it supports lossless compression and gapless playback." In addition, the publication reviewed a "totally tricked out" Mac Pro workstation worth nearly $8,000. Despite scoring some of the highest benchmark scores of any Mac or PC, the review notes a bug that slows disk transfers when running Boot Camp/Windows (but not running the same config on other Intel-based Macs or when running Mac OS X natively).
