I think that Apple should refresh the 17" with more top of the line features this January to follow on the tail of Leopards release and support of things HD. It would be nice to have a computer to do top of the line HD production workflow that will last a few years. Amongs these upgrades, I'd like to see the following: 1. eSATA port built in. I've said it multiple times. But its true. If us pro's start using our macbook pros alot for HD production. We're going to need the highest transfer rate possible. 2. LED backlit screens. Hey, the 15" has them. When will the 17" get its due? 3. Blu Ray drive, reader or writer, i won't be too picky about this right now. It'd be nice for it to be HD DVD/Blu Ray writer/burner. But that'll be a while before it's invented or scaled down to a practical price for the Macbook Pro. 4. HDCP? If I eventually upgraded the drive myself thru an outside manufactured drive, would the Macbook Pro be comatible with HDCP? Or would I be pretty much out of luck when watching my HD DVD's/Blu Rays some day? 5. HDMI in. I was thinking about this. And there pretty much isn't an uncompressed way to input full HD into your Macbook Pro without using Firewire. Is it needed? Not necessary? Please agree/disagree. This is where I'll leave it up to discussion. For those that are doing alot of next gen production workflow. What would you like to see in your Macbook Pro in the future?
