d'oh. Hopefully the MBPs are released at WWDC. That is a nice speed bump, though.

Wow. These updates stink. I'll stick with my original macbook with 2gb RAM. Well, until new MBP machines come out :)

Also a drop in Power on the power supply from 60w to 55w, which is odd, but good, i think!?:confused:

Why are Apple making the MB so processor powerful while making so pathetic in terms of it's GPU?

Because they want to sell more MacBook Pros.

The UK and US Stores are now up!

And all the MacBooks on the UK Store are £50 cheaper!

So so update.

Now, will Santa Rosa differentiate the MacBook and MB Pro models?

Otherwise, got to wonder when these processors are coming?

Apple MacBook: Yesterdays technology at today's prices.

EVERYONE would've been happier had they stuck with 1.8 and 2.0 and gone with Santa Rosa. Now the graphics, CPU and chipset on the MB will be a generation behind every other laptop for the next 6 months.

Good work Apple. Idiots.

As someone waiting to buy their first Mac I am FURIOUS with Apple and their continued raping of MB buyers.

The MBs are the line of computers that will benefit most from SR and Apple do THIS? I actually cannot believe it. They are absolute bastards.

As someone who has been waiting for about a year for a decent GPU in a MB to buy his first Mac I am severely pissed off.

Why are Apple making the MB so processor powerful while making so pathetic in terms of it's GPU?

For the next six months the MB will be poor compared to every other laptop, as every other one will have SR. Heck, the SR CPUs are cheaper than the old ones so they could've put in a 2.0 and 2.2.

I think most ppl (I do!) feel the same way about the Mac Pro's and their 17 month old GPU selection.

In my imagination
So, wonder how long it will take before we start getting "Why didn't they put Santa Rosa in the MB" threads, or "How long until Santa Rosa is in the MB" threads?

Yeah and those... "I hate Apple because they didn't make my dream come true..." posts as well. Glad I went out and bought my MBP and started having fun with it, so much for those fence sitters.
