Este excelente Redpaper (el redbook saldrá a finales de 2010) nos vale para ir echando un vistazo a las nuevas máquinas anunciadas en Agosto de este año, libro recomendado para todos los profesionales del mundo "i", bueno también es válido para otras gentes un poco más raras, pero ya sabéis que a mi solo me interesa el Power pero con una "i" inside.
