150 apps with Exposé: A Mac user decided to open 150 apps on his MacBook Pro, launch Exposé, and screen grab the process for all the world to see. The user stated that he noticed no slowdown after opening all the apps with 4GB of RAM.



Robbie tried the same thing with 2GB of RAM on his MacBook Pro. It took 10 minutes to open all the apps, and there was some slowdown. If someone wants to send Robbie two more gigabytes of RAM, he'll try again.

This is an interesting move that Apple is making. It could definitely bring gamers to their platform, since Nintendo has a lot of experience in that area. The technology in the Wiis might even turn up in Apple's computers. However, I just don't see Nintendo being that cool compared with the Playstation 3 and the XBOX 360, but then again those two both are partnered with each other in the PC field.



the apple/nintendo headline is a hoax/joke. don't lose sleep over it. no ... lose sleep over your gullability and poor business acumen.



Hey Robbie, probably the 150 Aps didn't slow down your MB. Google Earth by itself did that. Try again with 149 without GE and see the difference!!



When you say slowdown, you mean beachballed to hell and back or just not as nippy as he'd like? These things help certain Senior Editors get a free 2GB of RAM yknow.

Ok, it didn't beachball. But what if I want to run 160 apps while rendering effects in Final Cut Pro. I can't do that without the most RAM the computer allows. I also need a 42" plasma TV for when I work at home. Oh, and a PS3.
