    Yep. If you don't need a new computer right now, then wait.

    1. It's not called Core i7.
    2. October at the earliest.

    They will be coming to the Macbook Pro range

    Not until Q3/Q4 2010 (August)

    You may see them in other computers by Q1 2010 though.

    Yeah I totally agree. Apple has been lagging on updating processors it seems by a couple of months at least behind their initial release.

    No... mobile Nehalem won't even EXIST until then. Apple will release at the same time as everyone else.

    honestly don't wait for i7 if you need a computer. It is really only better than the older architecture in few set of applications. I would wait till apple actually has a 64bit os (oh BURN!!)

    Uhh Toms says mobile i7 will be out end of this year. I doubt Apple will have them in a portable for several months out after that. Especially with no pressure to show something at Macworld since they are no longer attending...

    Ownage. TSkil knows what he's talking about though, you won't see quad-core for a WHILE. I just waited 7-8 months for the unibody MBP and I don't think I can wait for quad core. Not being a "professional" I don't think it will make that much of a difference to me anyway.

    They wont go into production until Q1, and i'd love to agree but Apples been hardly keen to adopt mobile Quad Core, and we all know why.

    Its going to take a whole refresh of the Unibody lineup to integrate i7 due to higher heat issues, well actually less heat but more concentrated, anyway I think they're looking into new cooling systems for it now, but Q1? its too soon, Apple refreshes its notebook lineup completely every 2 years, so August 2010 makes sense.
