    Just wondering if the new MBP's that will be released with leopard will have isight included because I remember reading somewhere that it may not...
    Will the new MBP's be the same price as the current MBP's right now...or would its price be bumped up since it is a new product...I asked a sales person at london drugs today and he said it wouldn't but I am not sure he knows what he is talking about.
    any help is appreciated

    I would have opted for a price cut over an iSight for sure but I don't see that happening because it seems like they've committed to the design (all screen-integrated Mac's have the camera) and the Macbook Pro is supposed to have the most features anyways.

    No one knows for sure.

    I haven't really found a use for the iSight camera but there are times when it really does come in handy for doing stupid things (look at this picture of my can of coke!)

    I can understand the motivation behind some wanted to have the MBP without the built in camera though, some workplaces have rather restrictive policies. Even if presented with a choice, I'd still pay extra to get the iSight.

    I would rate the rumor of no isight = very low.

    Price points... who knows, but I would expect them to stay within $100 of where they are now when the new hardware is released.

    I doubt they would take a feature such as the isight away, they just got done adding it to all their products 6 months ago (about). As for prices, I can't see them changing all that much either.

    Now that they have researched on the most effective way to add an iSight and implemented it successfully, does not make sense to take it away, unless theres some problem I have not read about with them.

    The only reason I could think of for removing the iSight from the MBP is to try to produce a machine that would be allowed into secure areas, where cameras are prohibited.
