    It dawned on me that iSight resolution has been stuck for years, and I think its time to complain, and see if someone hears me. lol

    I have come to expect innovation, not just faster processors o more powerful graphics cards and this seems to be the trend right now.
    And I agree when people say "what do you use your laptop for that requires more than an i7?"

    Nothing, but that desn't mean we can't get a better isight, usb 3 or even slight cosmetic changes. I think it would be nice to see a little bit more progress on new macbook pros. Back in the day powerbook were known for their advances from the last generation, like powerbook DVI or powerbook gigabit and stuff like that. Now it's just mid 2010, late 2010... Seems a little bit dull.

    Anyways, im not bitter, just wanted to know if anyone else has thought about HD iSight and shares my point of view.

    The iSight has been updated. Nothing takes advantage of it though (iChat, Photo Booth). I think it was updated with the Early 2008 MBPs.

    I know they are at least capable of 1280x1024 stills though Photo Booth only uses VGA.

    Isn't it only 0.3 mp or has It improved since then?

    You can't really do anything with this unibody design. The fact that it's so simple and elegant is the selling point. I'm sure a new design will pop up eventually, but I don't really see how Apple can improve it.

    I think they've raised it to 2MP

    I hope they do redesign, mine would become "more special" :D

    I would love an isight that did 1080p !

    Would really make me consider replacing my Santa Rosa MBP.

    As it is right now, I don't see much allure. Although Unibody design is very elegant.
