    Am I the only want who couldn't care less about a redesigned MBP?
    I still think the current design looks great.
    (Only thing I'd really like is replacing the optical drive with a SSD Boot drive and Ivy Bridge)
    And even at that, for 200-300 cheaper, I'll take the 2011 Refurb over 2012.

    :rolleyes:

    I am kind of in the same boat as you. I could really careless about the redesign. I just picked up a late 2011 MBP and love it, I love the design, form factor, features, just everything about it. I suppose if I was in the market I would be interested in the redesign but I am not.

    I agree, there's not much you can really improve with the current design and still be a laptop, unless you want to offer different colors.

    The current MBP's have a very minimalist design. I'm curious as to how Apple will change the aesthetics with the next generation MBP's.

    True, you don't want to over-do the design haha.

    What a silly American phrase - "could care less". You therefore do care an unspecified amount.

    If you said "I couldn't care less" I would understand.


    Regardless, I think a redesign would be a bonus, not essential. I'd be more interested in a better screen pixel density, power and battery life. If they're gonna throw away the ODD, then chuck in a dedicated GPU (13 inch).

    I'm sure you're not. I'm hoping there isn't a redesign, to be honest. Although the prospect of a slightly better battery is tempting, I'd prefer to keep the current design over a thinner, or God forbid even a tapered design like the Air.

    If they could reduce the bezel around the screen and change to a 16:9 ratio (I hope they don't) it would reduce the size and change the look

    To your first statement, I'm sorry my "American phrases" bother you.

    As to the relevancy of your post, I agree, greater pixel density (Atleast on par with the MBA) and dedicated graphics would be nice.

    The second phrase is the correct one, and has been corrupted by the masses who don't pay attention to what they're saying hoping you will divine the correct meaning from the situation. I grew up hearing the second phrase, not the first. It's like the word "irregardless", which isn't a word. People seem to think it means the same thing as "regardless".

    I like the current design, but new designs are fun. I think the current options are kind of weak and over priced on the MacBook Pro 13" (the only one I pay attention to). They definitely needs cheaper SSDs and to lose the optical drive (and hopefully get better ventilation to let them run at full throttle without becoming super hot and throttling the processors). I assume if they eliminate the optical drive that will probably lead Apple to try to make them thinner. I'd prefer they stay a similar size and add a discrete GPU and a second and or better fan! I wouldn't mind if the design were the same. Although the glass screen is difficult to see outside, it's really nice in terms of being able to clean it easily, and I like the black border.

    It's like how some Americans will just drop random syllables as they say certain words - it's perfectly acceptable to just drop random words as well. :p

    Regarding redesign, on one hand, if they keep the same design my current macbook's resale value won't drop as much, but on the other hand... redesign and potentially thinner!

    Personally I think they are thin enough, maybe instead of making things thinner they could try something else to add to mbp taste.

    The new MBP 13" should have 1440x900 pixels, like the MBA. This would be even more awesome than thinness.

    Dont cry little one:D

    Any way yes I would MUCH rather have an SSD instead of the optical drive who even uses that?

    hopefully they redesign them with proper cooling.
