    Putting a quad-core on the current mobile chips isn't worth the energy demand. Wait until the ~20nm chips.

    It might as well be never. Keep holding out until 2012/2013.

    Apple would more than likely rather have you buy a desktop for that.

    maybe in the next desktop. not in the notebooks for a while, cuz i don't think they can workout the energy efficiency yet.

    When are they going to nano engineer two pounds off the thing? You can buy two 50" Panasonic Plasmas for what one 17" MBP cost, yet it weighs almost seven pounds.

    I guess Foxconn can't do nano engineering yet, and Apple won't sacrifice their 60% plus profit margin.

    There is also that one person that has to point out the "spelling Nazi" like they are the one at fault. If people typed properly in the first place.

    2012 onwards. So just buy the dual core. Apple aren't stupid enough to put a 1.5ghz quad in.

    Oh and you sound like you're young, like 13 as you cant spell, mentioned your father etc... I highly doubt you will even need a quad core.

    No you don't... there are professionals still using their powerbooks to edit national programs and commercials. If you want quads then get a desktop.

    ^ Listen to that. It's the best advice. Really, I still don't see the point of having a quad core processor that has each of it's cores clocked up as an Intel Atom :mad:
