    There isn't anything faster on the market (short of Quad core Intel, which would have a 20 minute battery life and feel like an open fire on your lap), so no, there won't be a faster Macbook Pro in the near future.

    Buy it now.

    the MBPs available today are amazingly fast. the first ever MBPs available were amazingly fast, compared to their predecessors.

    buy now.

    Dont buy it unless you want a world of problems. Buy a PPC Mac and wait for them to fix all the bugs. If you consider it slow, weigh your options; Do you want a fast POS laptop. Or do you want a bullet proof slower one? Choice is yours friend. ;)

    There is nothing immanent. You have to ask yourself why you need one now, what you are using it for now, what you plan to use it for in the next little while. Getting the newest computer sucks because you're basically beta testing, and the applications aren't optimized for them.
    Apple will always come out with something better, faster, and cheaper, usually on a Tuesday:D .

    umm I have a PPC so ur not really making any sense.

    I want to wait because when I bought my Powerbook two weeks later the MBP came out. I got screwed haha.

    Yeah I don't need it now. I meen it would be cool to have one now but.

    I've used a Core2Duo MacBook Pro, and it's really great. There are loads of problems with my MacBook Pro, tonnes of them (see other thread), but the Core2Duo one felt miles faster, cooler and generally much better refined.

    That'll teach me for buying a Rev.A computer again...

    i have absolutely no problems with my CD MBP. Apple is good about support - especially now that they've made the switch to Intel. they don't want to leave any of their customers in the dark.

    don't be scared off by tales of bad machines. yours may be flawless. mine is.

    It took every ounce of self control to wait until I got my C2D MBP in Nov.06 rather than the earlier ones. Ahh, delayed gratification really works;)

    there is nothing wrong with the current C2D out right now. All my machines i have are intel and they work great. Seems like you've had this attitude for a long time considering how old ur machine is.....you'll probably never upgrade.
