    Hello everyone.
    I've been reading a bit about apple in 2011. I read about the macbook pro's, and about OSX Lion. And I really can't for it to get out. But then I wondered about, if I should upgrade my 2009 Macbook Pro, to the new 2011 versions, since it sounds like that they are having quiet a lot upgrades/updates.
    - Do any of you think it worths upgrading it?
    Thank you.
    Btw sorry for bad english, I don't live in a english speaking country.

    I would say no. If your existing macbook pro does what you need it to do than the upgrade doesn't make sense. Unless there is a new feature (such as usb 3, better screen, better battery, etc) that you want/need.

    The best upgrade in my opinion is a solid state drive.

    You won't see much of a difference between what you have now and what is expected to be released. As the other person said, the biggest speed improvement you can get right now is with an SSD. That is something you can do yourself on your current MBP too.

    If it runs fine for now and you aren't having major slowness, then its an upgrade you probably can pass on. I'm keeping my 13 for this update (same one as you have except a solid state drive) as history has shown that the MBP line does hold up for the long run and I have to agree.

    Hard to say since the new MBPs have not been announced yet. These "big" updates are just rumors, there is no guarantee that we will see most, or even some of them. Rethink about it when the new ones are actually out
