    Oh, really? Wow! I didn't know we had a physic/Apple employee who would know/Steve Jobs on the forum who knew when the new Macbook Pro's were coming out and could say it with such confidence. As you clearly know everything, does my girlfriend really love me? Or, when will the Singularity be? And what is the World solution to Global Warming?

    Thank you physic/Apple employee/Steve Jobs for coming on this humble forum and answering our questions!

    Maybe, maybe not ;)

    Seriously do we need another thread asking if apple will release an update - even if its a poll.

    Just read through the gazillion of threads already asking this and you'll see no body knows.

    I read somewhere that the 13" isn't really even a Pro, so I think you're title is wrong. Regardless, I think it depends on when we'll see the next "big" refresh. (All that comes to mind is Light Peak because I don't keep up to date on processor news). If they plan on putting those out in Aug/Sep then I bet it's safe to assume we'll see some kind of speed bump in Jan/Feb. If they're introducing Light Peak/significant refresh of the MBP line in Mar/Apr then I would think it would be less likely to see a bump.
    Not considering any of that and just making assumptions based on my guy feeling - we'll see speed bumps in Jan/Feb.

    i definately think we'll see a spec increase atleast for the 13" MBP as price wise it isnt much better than the 13" mac book its got worse specs tbh.

    In the uk its cheaper to buy a 13" unibody macbook with the same specs as the low end MBP but it has a larger hard drive.

    So to buy a lowend 13" MBP its more expensice than a MB and has a lower size hardrive

    I voted no for January but if you had said February I would have voted yes. You asked us for an opinion. It's going to happen either Jan, Feb, or Mar... Apple's historical mbp release dates confirms this. It's about 8 months on average between mbp updates and the last one was in June 09. Couple that with Intel releasing new mobile chips at CES in January its a near certainty that new mbp's are in the pipeline.

    Given the recent reported problems with the new iMacs you have to ask yourself... do you buy a new rev A upcoming mbp right out of the chute or do you wait to see how the early adopters fare? That I think is the real question.

    A rose by any other name would smell just as sweet. I own the June 09 13" MBP and I absolutely love it. It is a swell machine. The nay sayers need to remember that all laptops are compromises between size, weight, and features.

    While I may be a 15" MBP owner, the 13" looks to be an awesome machine. I think most of the stink about pro/non-pro comes from arrogant or elitist owners who got their nose out of joint because the 13" model started sporting the pro name.

    To me its a tool and I don't care what its called as long as it does what I need it to do.

    Why? Will new ones somehow make your MBP less awesome?
