Apple's first again with the iMac upgrades (Santa Rosa, mild speed bump, shipping with 667Mhz RAM when they could have started with 800Mhz from the get go since prices were already falling on the faster RAM at the moment the SR MBP went on sale), but a true laggard in the laptop arena . No SSD option, no 7.2k 200GB Hitachi HD option, no BR optical drive option...the list goes on. I wouldn't expect a 512MB NV Quadro, or 256MB Quadro FX 1600M in a MBP, but something higher-end than what they currently offer (I guess it's that age old heat issues problem with the thinner MBP frame) should be coming soooon, yes? The 2.8Ghz is overclockable, but you'd never expect Apple to have a user adjustable CPU, not even in a pro model. I suspect, do to heat issues, the next MBP 17in or full line mini-update in September?, will use the next speed bumped standard Merom 2.6Ghz CPU. MBP seriously needs to keep up with the competition, now that Intel is the only supplier, and all the other manufacturers get their chance to obtain those at the same time. Given Apple got the 2.8Ghz Extreme 1st for the iMac, why can't they come out with the latest and greatest on their laptops...they always trail the competition in raw performance power .
