This isn't a particular criticism of the new macbook pros (I've put those elsewhere), but am I the only one who feels like Apple could really use a portable that is optimized for performance at the expense of battery life, if not thinness? I don't expect them to create a new chassis for a thicker mbp (unrealistic, though I'd be happy if they did), but I find it weird that they demo the new mbp in a dual monitor editing setup while at the same time limiting the graphics cards, RAM, and possibly processor configurations for the sake of battery life and heat. Don't get me wrong, for those who use their laptops on battery a lot, battery life is important. My issue is that I need portability, but I barely use the battery unless I'm on an airplane. I need a mobile workstation, but I don't need 10 hours of battery life. I'm plugged in 95% of the time. At the very least, I wish they'd offer a CTO machine that compromises on battery life in exchange for raw performance. Basically, I use my macbook pro like you'd use an iMac, but I travel with it. In my experience, there are many of us who work this way.
