new iPod touch and upcoming MacBook Pro

iPod touch

Apple has released new iPod touch with 32GB capacity. The new 32GB capacity is just right for me. However, it is a bit pricy - 32GB for US$499 or AU$629. The prices of 8GB and 16GB models remain the same. Something I am thinking about.

Why do I need (or want) an iPod touch? There are two main reasons: the only iPod I have is the first generation iPod shuffle (1GB), which is sort of outdated and can't play movies/TV shows.
And, unlike Don, I don't have a PDA. iPod touch seems to be a good PDA to me. (I don't think iPhone will be available in Australia that soon, and Apple also updated iPhone to 16GB capacity from 8GB.)

Also thanks to applewoods, the upcoming MacBook Pro specifications look good to me. Faster CPU with upto 6MB shared Level 2 cache and NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT with 512MB GDDR3 memory. (No, I can't tell you more detail.) The best thing is that MacBook Pro will be in the same dimension as current one, which means that I can get new Crumpler bag for the upcoming MacBook Pro first.

A while back, I had a tough decision on whether to get a MacBook Air or a MacBook Pro. Currently, I am more inclined to towards a MacBook Pro, as Don suggested that it would be better off to get “decent mobility and superior power over superior mobility and decent power.” The spec of upcoming MacBook Pro looks good to me.

I'm sure you know that I've been trying to sell my PDA, and just haven't been able to find a buyer yet.
