PRO DUAL COMPACTFLASH ADAPTER
EXPRESSCARD 34

DUAL-SLOT COMPACTFLASH (CF) MEMORY CARD READER & WRITER FOR MACBOOK PRO

Two Slots, No Waiting
Sonnet’s Pro Dual CompactFlash Adapter ExpressCard/34 enables you to transfer files concurrently from two CF memory cards to your MacBook Pro on-location or in the field, studio, or office. Pro Dual CompactFlash Adapter ExpressCard/34 supports the fastest available CF memory cards and future CF cards up to 886x at full speed, making it a superior alternative to USB memory card readers. Not only is it fast, its compact size allows it to fit into a gear bag, with no dangling cable.
Unlike common CF adapters, Pro Dual CompactFlash Adapter ExpressCard/34 uses the 2.5 Gbps PCI Express interface incorporated into ExpressCard® slots, so it delivers performance superior to adapters that depend on the ExpressCard slot’s slower USB 2.0 interface. If you’ve been using CF cards for a while, you may even have a Microdrive in your gear bag—Sonnet’s adapter can handle it. Pro Dual CompactFlash Adapter ExpressCard/34 accepts two Type I (flash memory) cards or a combination of one Type I and one Type II (hard drive) card. If you’re a photographer or videographer using equipment that relies on CF cards, this Sonnet adapter will save you time and improve your workflow.

Key Benefits

* Transfers files concurrently from two CF memory cards—creates a significantly more convenient and efficient workflow

Apple Announces New MacBook Line

October 15, 2008 Leave a comment

At their Notebook Media event yesterday, Apple announced new 15″ MacBook Pros with improved graphics performance, and glass Multi-Touch trackpads.

Starting at $1,999, the MacBook Pro uses the latest Intel Core 2 Duo processors available, running up to 2.8 GHz, and a new graphics architecture that allows users to switch between the NVIDIA GeForce 9400M integrated graphics processor for better battery life and the powerful NVIDIA GeForce 9600M GT discrete graphics processor for higher performance.

Features include:

  • Unibody enclosure
  • Mini DisplayPort for Video out
  • Two NVIDIA graphics chipsets: 9400M and 9600M GT
  • Instant-on LED-backlit displays
  • Glass Multi-Touch trackpad with new Multi-Touch gestures
  • User accessible hard drive

The new MacBook Pros will provide the following price points:

  • $1999: 15.4″ Glossy Display, 2.4GHz, 2GB RAM, NVIDIA 9400M + 9600M, 250GB HD.
  • $2499: 15.4″ Glossy Display, 2.53GHz, 4GB RAM, NVIDIA 9400M + 9600M, 320GB HD.

Apple also provided a quiet update to the 17″ MacBook Pro:

  • The updated 17-inch MacBook Pro keeps its original aluminum design, and now comes standard with a high resolution 1920 x 1200 LED-backlit display and a larger 320GB hard drive or an optional 128GB solid state drive.

And also upgraded some of the features of the MacBook Air:

  • MacBook Air, measuring only 0.16-inches at its thinnest point, 0.76-inches at its maximum height and weighing just three pounds, now includes new NVIDIA GeForce 9400M integrated graphics and a faster architecture to provide robust support for 3D games and enhanced performance. Starting at $1,799, MacBook Air is available with a 120GB 4200 rpm hard drive, a 50 percent increase from the previous generation, or a new 128GB solid state drive.
