    i have a system with these specifications

    2.66GHz Intel Core I7
    8GB 1066MHZ DDR3 SDRM - 2X4GB
    500GB Serial ATA Drive @ 7200
    SuperDrive 8X DL
    MBP 17"HR Antiglare WS Display

    i like keeping up with the technology, and sell my older mac to upgrade to latest and the greatest one. but looking at this new upgrade i am not really sure if its worth an upgrade..what r your thoughts.?

    There's a 10 Gbps port on the side of the new one.

    But no peripherals yet that use it, unless Intel has something up it's sleeve for today's presentation.

    This is a spec bump for the 15" and 17" models. It likely isn't enough to prompt replacing a 2010 model. The 13" has a bigger upgrade from a CPU standpoint (Core 2 Duo to Sandy Bridge i5/i7), but apart from the Thunderbolt port, the other hardware components are the same (screen, storage, etc.).

    Don't. Unless you have a totally legitimate reason for doing this in under One Year , Wait until you need to.
