    ^^^should be up on 1st page rumors here on MR later today or tomorrow.

    So if true, will it be like the iMac G5>Intel transition?

    You buy the new style MBP 17in, shortly thereafter the Nehelam + BR + better GPU + 18in 16:9 wide-gamut LED screen., higher-capacity SATA 6Gb/s standard faster SSD option (come on, don't you think the TOL MBP should have a higher-capacity SSD option than the friggin MBA), MBP is announced for the same price :D ?

    If you consider early 2010 to be "shortly thereafter". Mobile Nehalem CPUs are scheduled for Q4 2009 and Q1 2010, so I think it won't come earlier. It'd make it a year, and then there's no reason for redesign just because of a new processor. Also why do people seem to think Nehalem will make your computer faster than light? It seems it'll bring improved performance mostly to servers and high-end desktops, less so to laptops. Surely it'll be better, but is Intel marketing enough to make you expect wonders?
