    hello, I am interested in getting a portable mac to replace my 3 year old 12" PowerBook, I have a 20" iMac CD so getting a newer mac portable isn't a MUST cause the iMac serves me well, but when I'm away from home it gets frustrating at times with the PowerBook, so as you can see a powerful portable at the moment isn't a must, but I would really like one.

    I waited on the the C2D MBP hoping for a case touch up, like the no latch and the easy access harddrive. and a higher resolution on the screen. now this new one is released, it's nice, but it isn't that big of a deal, what I wanted is a higher resolution screen, my friend was saying that hoping for a higher resolution 15" screen is unrealistic because the current resolution is pretty high as it is for 15". is that true? and are we ever getting a new design on this machine or is Apple just sticking to this one? thanks.

    Re the screen, I think its pretty high res as it is. What is it about the casedesign you dont like? What would you like to see? Personally I love the Aluminum case and the looks of it.

    Right There --->
    Since you already have a working PB and are not in dire need of a MBP, i think you should wait for leopard and santa rosa. With that you could also possibly expect a case redesign.
    Btw, i have the new MBP and it is simple awesome. :)

    Obviously you're not a golfer.
    ever? i can 100% guarantee we will get a totally new design of the laptops eventually.

    thing to remember about any new case design, is that it bumps the machine to a revision A; the c2d MBP is now a revision B/C and it looks like no mooing, much cooler, etc... the bugs have (mostly) been worked out and now you have a very solid machine. i have a last revision Titanium PB and its rock solid for the same reason.

    just something to consider.
