The new Macs are here! New iMacs with i3, i5 & i7 processors. New MacPros with single and dual six-cores!! We'll go over the specs and try to help you decide which one might be the right one for you.

The Magic Trackpad is out and it's really really cool. We'll have one on hand to show and you can try. Since we're a portable group and most of us are already familiar with trackpads on our MacBooks, this is a great addition to our desktops.

Last month, we gave a preview of Safari Extensions but there were very few to show. Now that Safari 5.01 has been officially released and a bunch of extensions are available, we'll review this great new feature.

We'll also go over some cool iOS apps for iPhone & iPad this month and, of course, we'll have some time for Q&A.

Our meeting this month will be at the same location as last month. We thank Jan Chesne for allowing us to use the rec room at her townhome.

Here are the directions:

Address: 2700 Pearl St. in Santa Monica (Pearl & 27th). 

27th St. going south from Pico ends in the entrance to the complex (In front it says Village Park Townhomes).  Go in the entrance, turn right, go over 2 speed bumps (street curves to the left) and park in the parking spaces or anywhere along the road where it doesn't say "No parking."  The rec room is across the road from the parking spaces and slightly south.  The rec room is off Unit 60 (please don't bother any of the residents).
