So, I have decided just recently to buy a MacBook Pro. I have the budget for the $2499 one and I have just test drived one at the Apple Store in Mall of Louisiana, Baton Rouge. My problem is deciding when to buy. Most people advice me to buy just after the MacBook Pro refresh. However, here is what comes to me. The next revision of the MacBook Pro is promised or expect to come with the new Montevenia platform. This platform is able [to what I know] to support the future Nehalem and current Penryn processors. However, I have heard that the new Montevenia platform is more beta hardware than anything else. I personally don't want to be a test subject of new hardware that may crash or have hardware bugs. On the bright side, Montevenia platform promises faster speeds. If I am not mistaken the current platform of the MacBook Pro is Santa Rosa, which I've heard is good, but is already maxed out in speeds. I would just like some advice which to get: Montevina (a new unknown platform) or the Santa Rosa platform. Also, this can be a n00b question, but can you update a processor, for example, switch a Penryn to Nehalem in a MacBook Pro? or is it soldered to the mother board? Any opinions or comments are welcomed.
