    Okay, I know the new Macbook Pros just came out, but as someone who will be waiting until the next generation, I'm very eager for certain features. I can't be the only one. What do you want to see in the next refresh?

    I would like...

    Liquid Metal Design
    Optical Drive Removal
    Flash Storage Implementation
    High Resolution Screen (Retina Display?)
    Thunderbolt Ports (Removal of USB and FireWire Ports)

    That's it!

    the only one I doubt there would be retina, and maybe they will include at least one usb port.

    NYC, or thereabouts
    The swappable bay with SATA III.

    Rippers get ODD.
    Savers get HDD.
    DJs get SSD.
    Explorers get 2nd battery.
    Video editors get 2xeSATA.

    The only person who isn't happy is Steve and his "clean lines" campaign -- I say the good of the many....

    Really if all they did was make SSD standard next year, they could make an event out of it and show off how ridiculously fast it is, or already is :p.

    I thought the entire purpose of Thunderbolt was to unify ports, as in making a USB-esque port that works for both?

    I think the retina display is very possible, what with the independent resolution rumor from the other day.

    I hope 2012 is the year they make several things standard. Flash storage, no optical drive and thunderbolt.

    Is there any chance the MBP could be updated later this year? I recall this a couple years back.

    So, everything missing from this refresh and a retina display? Nice...

    Side note: I'm guessing you're being ironic with your sig?

    Blu-ray disk drive and SSD out of the box, but it will never happen, such a shame :(

    Bluray, probably not. But SSD will become a standard.
