Yes, I looked at the buyer's guide (http://guides.macrumors.com/MacBook_Pro_Buyer's_Guide). While it says "mid product cycle", it seems like updates have been issued every 6 months on the dot since the early Macbook Pros. Background: I currently own a late 2006 Macbook Pro. It's my travel laptop of choice, so I use it for everything from internet to Warcraft. I don't do anything professional on it (besides VPNing to work) but I like having a fast machine that can reasonably game. From what I'm seeing, the current Macbook Pros get about double the speed of my machine on 3DMark06 benchmarks, so it might be time for a good upgrade. Worries: a little more than 30 days until next product cycle and a fear they might introduce 3G on all notebooks (not just this new "mystery product" that's been talked about).
