    I want my MacPro update before MWSF. Make MWSF a super duper laptop day. Just give us the MacPro Apple!

    I tried reading the MR Guides and can't seem to get it - are the new mobile Penryns dual or quad core?

    Woohoo for new processors! It doesn't directly affect me at this point since my MBP is only 6 months old, but hey, good for the people who were planning on buying a new notebook! I'm hoping for some sort of sweet new features for the iPhone at MWSF. Hopefully we don't have to wait until February for new stuff (launched alongside the SDK).

    If true this is most excellent news!!! Well, then again, the desktop class of the Penryn has already been announced and there is not an updated Mac Pro available....

    Me = new Penryn MBP in Jan!!!!!!!!!

    Do you think that 9 days between the Penryn release and the keynote is enough time for an immediate release of the MacBook Pro's?? I'm afraid they won't start shipping till later in January....I really need a new MacBook Pro for spring semester!!

    Yay

    I have my macbook for 1 year and a half now. Its working great and all but I want to replace one with a little bit more 3D processing power. Hopefully, this new 13" ultra thin will provide that for me...otherwise...ill probably upgrade to the regular MBP. But in any case...its time to save up some cash now so I can upgrade comes january.

    Penryn doesn't even really seem all that impressive, a bit less power consumption, a bit cooler, but supposedly not much more powerful at least real world. I'm just hoping the prices of the current macbooks take a dive so I can buy one sooner.

    I'm in the same boat, been waiting for january for one semester now because I didn't really need to have a potent mac this semester. But next semester I will be doing a lot of FCP, Motion, Maya... so Penryn MBP would be awesome!

    not so bothered about it being ultra thin, I want it to be able to incorporate some decent components in there. I just want a lighter, more powerful MacBook, which this sounds like it'll be.

    Very appropriate ... Jan 6 is 3 Wise Men day, NEW TOYS!

    Mbp In January

    I really need a new MBP, but have NO interest in a smaller 13 inch screen. The ultra-portable will be great for some, but I want an upgraded MBP. ANyone truly think they will come out with both? Apple has been disappointing at past BIG announcements and needs to fix the bugs in Leopard before I get real excited.

    I'd say there is a good chance of both.

    I would not be surprised to find out apple and intel have been working together to "spin" the new Peryn line to say something like, Peryn, from sub-notebook to 17" books, we have you covered.
