Ok...first it was new macbook pros at WWDC. Then it was September 5. Now it looks like the week of September 12 or bust. I really would like a new, merom version of MBP, but there are drawbacks to waiting. For one, more RAM to power this new processor will mean a more expensive computer with minimal performance increases. It's even possible that if you do not upgrade the RAM past 2 gb, the comp. might actually be slower on some apps. than the current generation. The new form factor isn't that big of a deal because really, who gives a crap about a latch and other minor adjustments? And remember all of the issues with the old week 1-10 versions of the MBP and all of the major problems? Who's to say those wouldn't come up with merom and its almost guaranteed that this would happen with a new chip ANNDD form factor. So I have come to the decision that if the new MBPs aren't released by next week, most of you waiting should go ahead and buy it because, if I'm not mistaken, if a new notebook comes out within a few weeks, you can exchange your previosly purchased notebook for a new one anyways. And if it doesn't, you can be satisfied with Consumer Report's top rated laptop for a long time despite 32 bit.
