    1. It's not Core i7.
    2. It'll either be Clarksfield or Arrandale, and it won't be October (more November/December).

    This article is from February and is already outdated... Arrandale had been delayed to Q1 2010, for one.

    Isnt i7 being phased out by Intel at the end of the year? To be replaced with a new platform, i5?

    Uhh... NO.

    i7 is Bloomfield, ONE SINGLE CHIP in the overall line called Nehalem.

    i7 is desktop enthusiast.
    i5 is normal desktop.
    i3 is laptop (Clarksfield).

    Arrandale is from the line Westmere, the die shrink of Nehalem.

    Apple has very stable update cycle.
    February 2006 - October 2006 - June 2007 - February 2008 - October 2008 - June 2009 - February 2010 - October 2010.... etc.

    It'll likely use dual core 32nm Arrandale with interated GPU and GT 240M or GTS 250M as discrete GPU.

    Even if there was some Westmere chips out, seeing as Apple isn't attending MWSF 2010, they could do 7-8 month cycle and have them come out in January-February. Well, i'm hoping anyhow...

    For what it's worth, I don't forsee another update to the MacBook Pro line until at least early next year; this year's WWDC caught me off guard, as I was thinking September/October for the next MBP update.

    Model numbers across lines make SENSE compared to this (nothing on you, Eidorian; more power to you naming your chips by model number instead of clock in your sig)

    I've always gone by codenames; that gives identification to each type of chip in each family at each release. It's GOOD, and they really should just keep them for consumer release.

    It'd probably be funnier that way. "'Scuse me, sir; seems I'm lookin' fer Clark's field; can you direct me there?" :D

    if your not in a hurry, then wait until you need. I want one now myself, but probably going to wait and see what hardware is available in 2010 before i make the splash. I would like to wait for BR on a MBP so i can make my own home movies, but i have a feeling i will be waiting a while for no reason for BR:mad:

    I have reason to believe Apple is building a robot that wipes my posterior. His name will be "Poo-pon-me". It's face will be modeled after Jobs but it'll move more like Woz. Best part is it's only 0.15 inches thick! Oh and he'll have a diamond encrusted apple logo...

    ... but no firewire.

    There will always be something BETTER around the corner. That is just how technology works.

    you've forgotten the non-removable battery

    and it will come in glossy (+$50 for a matte option 2 months after the product's introduction)

    other 'features' may include cracking at the edges

    ....and spontaneous explosion, preceded by a funny buzzing noise in some cases.

    Not going to be i7. It's going to be i5 for notebooks. i7 are too powerful (thermally and power consuming) for a notebook of Apple's design to handle.

    [Edit 2 - i7s are going to be for notebooks also, but severely under clocked from their desktop counterparts. Core i7 - 720QM @ 1.6 GHz wit 45W TDP albeit larger 6MB L3 cache & faster DDR3 1333MHz. The fastest i7 chip I can find is the Core i7 - 920XM @ 2.00GHz with increased 8MB L3 cache, same DDR3 as the 720QM, but has a higher 55W TDP]

    Edit 1 - I strongly feel Apple will use the following Core i5's for the MacBook Pro line:

    Core i5 - 320DM @ 2.00 GHz 4MB L3 cache with 25W TDP | Turbo Boost Clock 2.80 GHz
    Core i5 - 420DM @ 2.13 GHz 4MB L3 cache with 25W TDP | Turbo Boost Clock 2.93 GHz

    Also, for the high-end MacBook Pro:

    Core i5 - 520DM @ 2.66GHz 4MB L3 cache with 35W TDP | Turbo Boost Clock 3.33 GHz

    All of them have Dual Channel DDR3 1066MHz Memory Controllers.

    These Intel chips will pack quite the punch. Take into account Nehalem based chips have a 22-28% efficiency over equally clocked Penryns. Talk about crunch powah!

    You might want to look at the Core i7 6xxM/LM/UM.

    Its funny to see Eidorian correcting everyone's incorrect and misinformed posts. If you read the Arrandale thread, you might learn something.
