    Hi All,

    Lately I have been considering an issue and couldnt quite come to the right answer. is it true that certain programs cant be installed on flash memory? I have been looking at the 15" i7 but i hear that there might be an upgrade due around 2011, does anyone know anythng about this and what it is likely to include? Reason is i would not like to spend the money on the 15" only to find that a later greater upgrade is avail. in your opinion, is the upgrade likely as soon as april-may next year and is there likely to be any significant improvements?

    MB Air has been touted as the "next generation of macbooks" so i was thinking that MBP might have something along the lines of flash memory and thinner design..what are your thought?

    Flash storage is just different kind of storage, it doesn't change the way how apps work. I've never heard of issues with installing apps to flash storage.

    I can see flash storage in MBPs but making them thinner would more or less kill the idea of MBA

    right. they will more likely keep the size and work on the specs instead.
