    I would not expect these in the upcoming revision, but maybe the late 2011 or early 2012....

    Also expect to pay two to three times that for it being in an apple product.

    if lenovo seem confident enought to incorporate into their new laptop i think it would be a step behind them if apple did not along with the sb processors i think all the releases seem to be coming along at the right time for apple to release it into their next refresh i hope thats the case anything other than that i think a few people mite feel a bit short changed

    Honestly I feel like Apple is always a bit behind in their hardware. Not in phones, MP3 players, or tablets, but computers.

    Laptops are overpriced for the power you get for sure. a so so GPU and a decent processor for 2k. In a PC you could grab so much more. OSx is expensive.

    With Steam for mac here now and Mac gamers really startin to emerge (and by emerge I mean deleting their bootcamp partitions) We need some decent GPU power under the hood.That combined with SSD(standard) would put Apple at the top tier again.

    Apple is too concerned with battery life. Apple will always sacrifice, power, speed, and graphics for battery life. If the next macbook pros lack optical drive they are coming that much closer to combining their air and pro lines.

    IMHO a Pro machine needs to be as powerful and robust as a desktop. Battery life can be achieved through settings via turning off or not using an item.

    Really who plays games without their machines being plugged in...

    The tests thus far on the dual stack SSDs looks good, but I would honestly hold off as the physical size (dimensions) of the flash memory itself is about to be shrunk by Intel and it will affect the price of all SSDs. They are supposed to jump in capacity and fall dramatically in price.
