The reason I ask, is simply this. I have always brought pro, purely for the metal casing and backlit keyboard. I am just wondering if they are trying to save money and use the same parts then may be it is possible. If it does happen that I will happily get macbook. My almost here new BTO Macbook pro will be going back on the 20th of october when it arrives. Because I will have already ordered the newest whatever comes out. Hopefully new ones ship ASAP, so I can compare both together.
