    i don't really know apple's track record,
    but have they ever only updated one model of Macbook Pro?

    i'm going to buy a 13" Macbook Pro, and I know that it's still running on Core2Duo.
    I know they decided Core2Duo because it's better performance than i3 or whatever.
    But the update to the 13" wasn't that big compared to the 13" MBP before it, right? Not like the 15" and 17".

    So, here's my two questions.

    1.) is there any chance that Apple will update the 13" in the near future?

    2.) is there any reason I should opt for the new 2010 13" compared to buying a pre-update one?

    Apple has updated only one model in the past, e.g. in MacWorld '09 they updated 17" MBP but not others

    1. Unlikely, they would have added iX already if they wanted

    2. 2010 has better battery and graphics card, but if they aren't important, previous gen is fine

    For your main question the answer is yes and no. Yes because in the past when unibody was introduced Apple has updated the 15" model and a few months later the 17" model. The no answer is because these particular models have updated once but in different times. The current models have been all updated so there is no possibility to update only one model!

    1. YES, they will have to update the macbook pro eventually...technology improves, we move forward,we get better specs every year. (Most recent update took 10 months but thats because they added the graphics switching thing and core i5 processors), maybe we can get a new 13" before christmas.

    2. The 2009 is great if you can get it cheap :)
