What do you expect of the next generation of MBP's? I think no optical drive is a given, at least for the sub 17" models. I'm more curious if they will ditch the drive bay like they did with the MBA's. I think the next generation of MBPs will have IPS displays with black frames, built-in SSD, very long battery life and strong specs. Imagine a 13" MBP without a drive bay and optical drive could have room for more battery and discrete graphics card, and probably even be thinner than the current crop.
