    I've seriously spent hours each day in the last week just hoping to see some new article about Macbook Pros and future updates.

    This suspense between the update is literally playing games with my mind :confused: and EATING ME ALIVE

    AM I THE ONLY ONE?

    I go through MacRumors News Discussion, MacRumors News Discussion 2, and this section about 20+ times a day looking for a 'New Macbook Pro Released'.

    This probably is going to continue until about mid March when I cave and decide to buy the current Macbook Pro model. I can wait, but only until then.

    Well I cracked. The day after the keynote. I wanted to see what Jobs would pull out of his hat and the Air was just not for me....I got a Macbook the next day and I do not regret it one bit. This thing is soooo fast and will easily perform well for 3 years, and frankly anyone complaining about 5 pounds should go to the gym, this thing is NOT heavy at all! My old 11 pound Sony was heavy.

    If I were you I would go ahead and just buy the MBP, it is a fantastic machine as it is and if the thing isn't updated till May you just spent 5 months waiting after probably waiting for many more months before.

    You're all not alone. I check this website scanning the forums, front page, page 2 rumors and buying guides just hoping someone somewhere has some new information. No one ever does:( And I definitely check this website WAAYYY more than 20 times a day......it's really sick.

    I just know that as soon as the Macbook pro is updated I'll be the first one to order it, Highest specs possible, NO QUESTIONS ASKED, no hesitations!

    I'm on my way to the Gym right now! The heavy plastic garbage is too much for me! :rolleyes:

    Stick to the Air or Pro, plastic Macs will be outdated shortly.

    I cracked and got the cheapo macbook. Just so I won't feel so bad when the new macbook pro comes out. I will sell the macbook and get the new one. I needed it too bad.

    I'll bump this post (or any similar one from this time period) whenever the Macbooks are next updated, if I can find it. I'm pretty sure the Macbooks won't lose the plastic any time soon. :D

    This section of the forum has practically been my home page for about the last month now. I'm quite sure that I've pretty much lost it, and have gone completely insane.

    I don't feel so alone anymore! I'm running a Ti powerbook G4 and it has truly been good to me. I'll continue to run old faithful until I see what I want in the MBP. How many years was the Titanium out before it was redesigned to aluminum? The aluminum came out in October of 2002 or 2003? I had just bought my Titanium when the aluminum came out. No real complaints about that since my powerbook has been so good to me...but this time I am more aware of my surroundings....so here I sit, now content to know that I am not alone, crouching, waiting to pounce, when updates have been made, when people start saying thank GOD it is finally here, when the time is right. I hope I will not have to stay crouching until Oct.

    Hahaha, I'm checking daily as well for new MBP updates.

    Although I'll probably end up skipping it, unless it's a major update (read: redesign). :(

    Yeah, I've been using a 17" Powerbook G4 for four years now and I still love it and it runs great but with it having the old PPC chip, it's time for an update.
    I've been waiting for a while now to get one and it's truly painful to watch Macworld 08 go by and see no updates to the MBP at all.
    At this point if Apple makes any changes to the MBP no matter how small I'm buying the best one they can make. :D I just hope they do it soon. I don't know how much longer I can use this Powerbook as it's having all kinds of hardware failure.

    I'm about to crack. Got out of bed after midnight.

    I'm about to buy an Air. The fully loaded one.

    Heh, I have a basket waiting for me at Apple.com with a Mac Pro and a MBA in it. Not very expensive too :p

    But I am a student and my MBP serves me way better. There's no way to justify buying above items with a year left on campus. :mad:
