    Sorry if this has already been posted (I couldn't find a post on this yet, though):

    Apple has posted (hardware) developer notes on the new MacBook Pro. Thank TUAW for pointing that one out.

    Also, major point #1 is that it looks like the processor bus is in fact only a 32-bit bus (is Napa64 just a rumor?). I'm no hardware expert, but it seems to me that it's unlikely that the 64-bitness of the processor is even going to be utilized on a bus like this. (or does it chunk up the data, and wouldn't that effectively slow down any 64-bit apps?)

    Hell, can we even run 64-bit apps? Has anyone with a C2D MBP tested this yet?

    As you can see - Brian got a 64bit response...
    Therefore, I think it's safe to assume the processor is 64bit Enabled.

    Firewire 800 and 400 are on the same PCI bus

    SO audio people take note, you wont get best performance from a FW800 drive and a FW 400 audio interface
