Hello. I will be starting college in September and will need a new computer. I had always wanted to try a Mac, but was never able to talk myself into getting one because of certain Windows-centric needs. With boot-camp, though, I think I am finally ready to take the plunge. What I am looking for is a laptop that will last me all four years in college. I plan to have, in addition to OSX, a Linux distro installed (either Ubuntu or SUSE) and XP (eventually Vista). I plan to Boot Camp to XP and Parallel to Linux. (Linux is just my playground where I mess around on the latest and greatest open-source stuff) Aside from the general college stuff, I plan to game a little bit (Oblivion + HL2, etc.), along with creating/editing some home movies. As such, I think at this point my plan is to buy the new MBP when it comes out to increase the amount of time the laptop will support the latest and greatest software goodies, including new games... (Hopefully, all four years of college!) I have some questions before I splurge on such an expensive piece of hardware. Some of these I think I already know, but most of what I could find was a little vague, so I am just making sure straight-out so there is no confusion on my end. Forgive my newbieness, hopefully it won't last long. 1. The new Macbook Pro will come out sometime in August/September, correct? 2. Will there likely be a price increase from the current high-end model of the MBP to the updated MBP? If so, how much can we expect it to rise? 3. How upgradeable will the new MBPs be, especially in regards to the video card? 4. Is it possible to use the built-in iSight camera in XP either with Parallels or Boot Camp? 5. A USB two-button mouse w/scroll wheel will have full right-click functionality in OSX, correct? The same with the scroll wheel? 6. Are there any suggested mice around $50? 7. Is it possible to hook up the MBP to a TV and stream movies/photos to it? 8. The only difference between the 15" and 17" (besides the obvious screen size) I could see was the Firewire 800 slot. Is that slot really necessary for large external drive if you plan on often transferring large files to and from it, or will the 400/USB 2.0 suffice? 9. That being said, it is possible to read and write to the same external drive in both OSX and XP, right? 10. How hard it it to right click on the MBP without an external mouse in XP? Its just a CTRL click? 11. Am I going completely overboard in wanted the new MBP as opposed to just a Macbook for what I want to do? Thanks for any help!
