I feel for everyone wishing for a better MP, but frankly I'm still pretty happy with the performance of my 2009 Quad. Now, I'm starting to think a new retina display MBP with 2.6GHz->3.6GHz Ivy Bridge, Nvidia 650M, and 512GB SSD with dual TB and USB3 ports, would be a nice upgrade... I could replace my Mac Pro and my Mac Air and have it all in one very portable but capable laptop. I could add a TB RAID array for my photo storage and be very well equipped! Hmm. Anyone else considering this?
