With every new macbook pro version that comes out, i get on my knee's and thank god that I was smart enough to buy my Early 2008 17" MBP. Benefits: Easy upgradability Good graphics card, (Aside from the NVidia debacle) DVI out! No massive HDCP issues. Express card! Hey, i can use my OWN card reader adaptor, Esata Card, and pretty much any other card i want. And I got a multi-touch trackpad. Oh, and did i mention that this version has ROOM inside to install STANDARD sized drives and parts that don't cost a fortune? 500GB, 1TB hard drive? No problem. And how bout and internal blu ray drive? No sweat! I just look at the new unibodies and aside from some external cosmetic stuff, (Which i think is terribly ugly.) it's a lot of bad moves on Apples part. Making the computer a few mm's to short to install standard sized drives?! Display port? What a pile! As a pro user, i know exactly why display port sucks major ass. I feel sorry for those who are handicapped with it. And, now with the exclusion of the Express card slot?! Seriously. I know there will be unibody fans. But aside from some fancy marketing gimmick about how the design is more sturdy and has better battery life, I think the new designs are terrible! Any thoughts?
