x86mac 02

OK, I’m in trouble now. I want the MacBook Pro, and I want it bad. Help me out by buying both my little laptops and not only will you make me a happy man, but you’ll get more writeups on hacking the Intel Mac. This sale will expire on Sunday; that’s when I’ll have to turn to eBay. Details for both computers after the jump…
