    No matter what apple does, people will be disappointed about what's new. I doubt the MBP will be updated at all. It'll probably be a small disappointing update. Eventually after all the ranting, since most apple buyers are impulsive, will drool over it in person and buy it.

    It isn't that great of an update. They didn't update the CPU. The added hdd and bigger graphics card is nice.

    Yes they did, they now have Penryn Core 2 Duos (2.4 GHz base model and 2.5 GHz for the upper-range).

    yeah, because my mid-2007 macbook pro has penryn.... :rolleyes:

    the update isn't trade-in worthy, but it sure is a nice bump for anyone waiting to buy. just because it doesnt apply directly to you doesn't mean it isn't a 'great' update.

    Anyone who thinks this is a major upgrade needs a reality check. It wont be much faster at all since its still plugging away with 667 DDR2. Hardly anyone will benefit from a bigger cache.

    It might run cooler though.

    If you get one, do yourself a favor and get the cheapest hard drive possible. Then go to newegg and get a fast 200gb 7200 spin hard drive. It makes a world of difference.

    Dont get me wrong, its a decent upgrade, but not earth shattering enough to wait 300 days for an update.

    Sorry, you are right, I didn't notice the bump up cache from 4mb to 6mb. I think it's a nice mid-yr update, but not trade in worthy.

    There always will be disapointment ...
    Learn to live with the wait for new products and during that time do not built up expectations that are too high ...
    You wanna know my disapointment today ? No new displays ...
    I look at it from the positive side : I am a bit short of money at this very moment so I happily wait until som weekt from now.

    I've always been hesitant to upgrade hDD myself, because I assume apple voids the warranty.

    If you have a last gen model, ones with the Merom processors it will still continue to work, just because new ones are out doesn't mean it will self destruct or stop working, Mine still works, I will get a new one either when this baby craps out on me, or when I think the time is right.

    The Penryns are going to give a bigger bump than people realize.

    No envy here as my 2.33 if fantastic, but buyers of the new MBPs are going to get significantly faster machines. Don't be fooled by the clock speeds.

    Speed

    I have the original Intel 2.0mhz Core Duo MBP, (i.e. NOT Core 2 Duo), from 2006. What do you think the difference in speed will be IF I was to upgrade to the newly released models?

    Probably just long enough to for you to continue to enjoy the products you already paid for.

    Please... a 12" MacBook....

    Well, yes, I am disappointed as well. Because I had expectations, and these were that Apple brings us back the 12" MacBook (Pro).

    I'd really need a small MacBook, which is light, and fully featured. Like the 12" was at that time!

    The Windows world PC laptop makers offer a wealth of choice of these small laptops. Why not Apple? The MacBookAir is nice, but it's features really don't appeal to me.

    Phew, what should I do. Try to make Mac OS run on a PC?
    Forget Mac OS on the laptop and go with a Windows laptop (sigh)?
