    THAT'S NOT WHAT WE'VE BE ASKING FOR.
    Apple is going down.
    I hate them.
    Or, at least i prefered the old one.

    Just ordered mine (to replace an antique 17" powerBook):


    • Processor = 2.8GHz Intel Core 2 Duo :eek:
    • Memory = 4GB 1066Mz DDR3 SDRM-2x2GB
    • Hard Drive = 320GB Serial ATA @ 7200
    • Optical Drive = SuperDrive 8X DL
    • Modem = Apple USB Modem
    • Remote = Apple Remote
    • Keyboard and Documentation = KYBD/User's Guide


    And AppleCare, 'cause I enjoy good ol' fashioned piece-of-mind.

    Not one bit. I was looking forward to them since I was planning on an upgrade. But no firewire 400, no trackpad button, and no full sized DVI plug was pretty much a deal-breaker for me.

    Maybe I'll see if I can get the previous gen MacBook Pro on the refurb store :eek:

    I'm so glad i bought last FEB 08

    i am so disappointed with the new MBP... on the other side of the coin, i'm just glad i bought my MBP last Feb 08, i hated those chicklet keyboards and the glossy screen..

    The glossy screen is horrible. It is the last thing I expected Apple to do. Having the option is fine, but being forced into the glossy is not. I also miss the FW400, DVI, and optical drive in the front (although that is the least disappointing). Besides those things, it's fine.

    Just put the final nail in the coffin for me, Apple is not a company that I want to support anymore.Secretive, arrogant and out of touch.

    It was a great run since the IIe and like all good things they do come to an end.

    BTW how do we close "accounts" here?

    I preferred the old style. This new model will have to grow on me.

    i don't like how the macbooks and macbook pros are so similar. the performance upgrades are nice but i would think that they would go away from nvidia since they were so unreliable with the failing graphics cards.

    I'm perfectly happy with my Penryn MBP. The changes are not significant enough to make me upgrade my 6 month old love.

    Actually, the entire trackpad is a button...like the Blackberry Storm :D. Watch the video on Apples homepage and you see them "click" it down. I am very happy about that.

    But I do not like the glossy screen or the lack of FW400...or the lack of making the 17" like the rest of em!!!!!! ****. But, who am I kidding? I am still gonna buy it and give my old one to my little brother haha

    Glossy screen = epic fail. Look at Engadgets photos - you can see, perfectly, in pin sharp detail, the guy taking the photograph. Very disappointed with that. Overall, I just don't like the look. I don't like all the ports bunched up together like that. And I don't like them not giving a proper resolution for 15" displays ( why no 1680 option?). No Blu- Ray option is inexcusable. EVERY OTHER MANUFACTURER can manage it - only Apple are thrashing about spouting crap of licences making it hard.

    Damnnit - I really really wanted this to be a good refresh, and it just isn't. Not even slightly. For £1,749.00, I demand perfection.

    Apple has the new pages up describing the system.

    Since I'm using this as portable desktop, the glossy screen is the least of my concerns. If a matte screen was available, I'd take it, but it's hardly a make-or-break decision.

    Not too impressed by the new models.

    I was lamenting how I'd have to sell my old one to buy a new MBP, but after seeing the new pics my SR MBP is looking more and more "classic" and "understated elegance". Not so with the new models IMHO.

    Not logging in would have worked, but then no one would see your outrage.
