Apple announcement

No thread for this?

So far a new Macbook Pro 13in., Maci Mini, and iMac.

I have to say, the iMac and Macbook Pro are very sexy computers. Mmmm

Yes. And in the cloud. Generally the rips come out around 1GB or so. Encoded at 720p h.264. The audio is what takes up the most room and will make the biggest determination of overall rip size. I usually don't encode with the best quality audio to keep the size down. Just enough so that it still sounds awesome through the receiver.

I may start doing this. How long does it take to rip a movie?

The one I use the most though is Furk.

I have an account on Furk.net that allows me to upload files, or copy files from torrent/newsgroup sites to Furk. And Furk allows for the streaming of files directly from their site, including directly streaming torrent files.

Depends greatly on your hardware and how you encode it. On my Mac Pro, it zips along pretty quickly.

We'll see what happens with Google. Many rumors that this week they'll unveil a 10in Samsung Nexus. If it hit's the iPad mini price, and goes on sale at the same time...

wtf is the 4:3 on the iPad's? Nothing more awesome than having black bars take up screen when watching a movie in HD.

He won't be able to give you a definitive time without knowing your optical drive read speed... Let's say that your read speed is 16x --- you could probably rip a 1 1/2 hour dvd in 30 to 45 minutes... Again, this also depends on how you're encoding the video and the audio mix (and how many audio tracks - spanish, english, etc).
Total work - I'd say you'll do a hour of work per 1 GB.

Well it's still really hard to say just by looking at the specs. There are many different factors involved that determine the speed. Mobo bus speed, and how many pipes it has, SATA interface, HD speed, DVD drive speed, etc. Most of that is not specified in the specs for that machine. It also depends greatly on how you choose to encode the output, how many channels of audio you retain, what codec you choose to use for video and audio, etc.

The best bet is to just give it a try on that machine. I'd expect something between 30 minutes to 3 hours. I know that's not much help....
