    I don't want to get my hopes up that this new one will be perfect but I'm guessing it'll be a lot better. C2D, LED hi-res screen, 2.6GHz instead of 2.16, 200 gigs of storage, 4gb of RAM instead of 2. Has anyone here upgraded in the same fashion and how different, realistically, was it?

    You're notice the better battery life as well.

    Does the stick come with it? I can't see it in the Apple store.

    please share your experience once you get your new one.
    I currently have the first generation MBP, and thinking of the same upgrade.

    There's a HUGE difference in:

    1) *Speed*
    2) *Heat*
    3) *Screen quality* (led screen)

    Minor difference in:
    1) Battery life (maybe 45 min to 1hr and 20 min more battery life).
    2) Multitouch trackpad 3 finger swipe is awesome!
