    I purchased a dual g5 last year and apple went and did an upgrade a few months later - I know its always the case that apple will constantly be updating their products but I want to purchase a macbook pro - thinking about the 17" - is there likly to be a 3Ghz flavour in the near future or is the current MBP about as quick as they are likly to be before the next intel upgrade??

    can anyone help?

    Wait until 3rd quarter for the Merom. Lower power, so better battery life, cooler and, therefore, QUIETER.

    My friend stil uses a G4 iMac and he is happy with it. I dont mind apple upgrading there computers to be honest i will only change computers when i need to.

    If you buy a MBP it will last you a very very long time, it can run ALL games on the market and would probebly run gaming for the next 4 years just fine. Apps should be less of a problems, you will have and enjoy the MBP for a very very long time.

    You already have a great system, so I would hang in there for the Merom
    based models if your workload permits.
