    Has anyone heard about new announcements coming soon? I was about to purchase one and I wanted to make sure I wasn't blind to an obvious update coming in the near future. Thanks for the help!

    sorry for the n00b post. :eek:

    It is HIGHLY unlikely. The MacBook Pro was last updated on February 27 with many people receiving their orders a week or two ago. They were updated with the latest Intel Core 2 Duo processor.

    Go ahead and buy.

    A little advice, don't get the 4GB of ram directly from Apple. You can get it for 1/3 the price somewhere else, like OWC (they'll even buy back your old memory).

    Based on recent news, it looks like the Intel Montevina update has possibly been pushed back until Q1 of '09, so we might not see redesigned MBPs until then.

    February 26!!! :D

    Don't buy the 4GB from Apple. It's over priced. Instead buy the RAM from NewEgg or something and put it in yourself.

    Also what's this accessory kit?

    oh well, already purchased. i would've had to find 2X2GB sticks anyway, since it would be 2X1GB otherwise. so it's just easier that way, even if it's a little more. student discount ftw.

    I know you already ordered it, but if it helps with any future purchases, check out the "Buyer's Guide" tab towards the top of the screen (under the "Search Forums" box).

    MacRumors does an awesome job of tracking when the last announcements for Apple hardware were, and even tell you when it's a good time (or not a good time) to buy.

    The handy-dandy MacBook Pro Buyers guide link at the top of this sub-forum will tell you that information. :cool:

    Good idea, I was able to get 4gb from OWC for about $100. Try to shop around, you might be able to buy it for less that that. :cool:

    i dont think there will be any updates soon, i mean, it's barely 2 months since the Penryn is out

    prolly in the mid 2008 tho, i'd say around July or maybe September then

    If you really wanted blu-ray, dells got some pretty nice laptops that they just rolled out with blu-ray. very competitively priced too.

    ...But they don't come with OS X.

    Looking on the bright side, if something breaks they can't just blame it on the third party RAM.
