After seeing the way computer technology is goiong today, it looks like these new MacBook Pros and MacBooks are the "half way there" models. I saw that HP has brought out a new laptop with a "glass touch screen" and the iPhone technology is the same technology being used by most phones today (touch screen). It looks like these new MBP and MB are the transition to eventually becoming touch screen computers (touch screen is actually old technology). I have been reading most of the comments on here regarding the new MBP and MB and there are lots unsatisfied people with it's "lack of features (features that have been out already and still not used on the new models). Maybe most professional who use MBPs would not want a touch screen but I am sure that if only the MB and iMac were the ones with this technology, MBP people would complain that there computers should have it too. Also, why is the 17" still using the old model design. I feel that these computer are the "half way there" machines and we are in a transition to what is yet to come. "I am not saying we should wait but isn't Apple the leading company in "breaking the norm" when it comes to computers? I do like the new MBP and MB, they look beautiful. These are just opinions, please go easy!
