Apologies to those of you not interested in Mac-related posts. I expect the current flurry to die down soon!
I noticed a subtle but interesting change in the graphics specs for the new Intel-based iMac:
For the first time ever, iMac lets you use a second display in extended desktop mode, in addition to simply mirroring the first.
In the past, the iMac and the iBook have supported external displays but only as a clone of the main one, unlike the PowerMac and PowerBook. This was never a hardware limitation, only a marketing decision and there’s a good reliable hack to get over that foolishness. But it’s nice to see it won’t be necessary.
