which one will it be?
Well, I always like new and shiny things, so I'll have to vote for the new MB/P's.
One thing to add, now that the screen border is gone, and the screen is better...can you see the black letterboxed areas when you watch a widescreen movie?
I like the thinness and the unibody of the new MBPs, but I'm gonna have to go with the old one. The biggest thing is, I never liked the design of the black display bezel. I personally find it visually distracting and difficult to use. I've been using my iMac now for 3 months and I'm not yet used to the feel of it. Also, the glossy screen is something that I detest. It looks pretty while the computer is off, but once it's on, it's full of glare and it's downright ugly. So, by a narrow margin, I'm going for the old MBP.
I couldn't agree more, I am not sold on the new Black bezel.
If sturdiness/new technologies/better performance is not an issue, definitely the timeless old Macbook Pro.
I was in the 'Old' camp until I went to Best Buy to see the new one in person. Sorry old friend, but your time has come. :[
Yeah, seeing one in person...Or better yet, next to an old MBP is all you need to appreciate the design. Plus, the build quality! This new one is solid. No creaky keys when you type.
I'm in the fantasy "half-way inbetween" category. If I had to choose though, it would be new, even though I despise the gloss.
From an aesthetic standpoint, I prefer the new one.
I just don't like the glossy display.
The new 'black suit' model.
NEW. The old was great also, but the color scheme was too bland for my tastes.
black on aluminum killed it for me.
New all the way. Love the keyboard.
I think the new one is simply a very very nice design. Even with the glossy screen which aren't in my good books I'd love to have a new one.
But I do still like my old MBP and it's going to do me for another 2 years I'd say
