    I've just read this article suggesting that the mobile Penryn CPU's were released on 12th January. Any thoughts?

    As far as I know they are available to system builders (for example Lenovo are already selling X-series ThinkPads with Penryn chips & have been for some time now) but they are not yet available to individuals to purchase retail/OEM separately.

    So as I see it, all the rumours of Apple not releasing new MBP's because Penryns are delayed, is untrue then.

    Well all I know is that you can buy a ThinkPad X61s right now with a Penryn chip. Of course Intel may not have enough stock to supply all the system builders so only their biggest customers have already had deliveries or something, I don't know,

    Me the same ;)
    I was even thinking about waiting for summer when Montevina goes out, but I can't really wait that long for a laptop :(

    I don't think the Montevina will offer many benefits unless it comes with even faster CPU's which it possibly will do. I will buy the MacBook Pro after the update to Penryn, and then I'll start saving my cash and I'll assess the situation when Montevina comes out.

    Can you link to a Thinkpad X61s because I just looked on Lenova's website and couldn't find one with a Penryn CPU. Thanks

    Ah, looks like I was misinformed; you can pre-order a penryn X61 but they won't ship till next month. Still, that's better than other system builders (including Apple) who aren't even taking pre-orders.
