  • Live: Apple laptop event

    We're live blogging from the Town Hall at Apple's (AAPL) Cupertino campus today as the company shows off new laptops. Refresh the page for updates.

    The event has begun. Steve Jobs comes out (he looks pretty good), and says we're here to talk notebooks. He says we'll first go over the state of the Mac, and Tim Cook, Apple's Chief Operating Officer, comes out to do that.

    Aaron Levie runs his own online storage and collaboration company, so he sounds a little sheepish when he admits that, before he founded Box.net, he didn't back up the files on his computer. He's not alone. Recent studies show that at most, 17 percent of MORE

    To recap: On Tuesday CEO Steve Jobs took the stage as he always does in September, and instead of unveiling shockingly innovative MORE

    For Nvidia, it's showtime.
