    I just want to ask you guys at MacRumors because I figure you would know the most about this stuff.

    When do you think the new line of MacBook Pros will come out?
    (I heard towards April in the spring)
    and
    What changes do you think will be made?
    and
    Will the price of the MBP 2010 go down over time/will the MBP 2011 cost more than the equivalent 2010 counterpart? Probably going to have to guess this one :confused:

    It's just that I'm contemplating getting this years MBP or next years. Most people I've asked seem to think that the past few MBP yearly changes haven't been too revolutionary, which leads to the thought that it will either be the same and not a whole ton of changes or either that this 2011 MBP will be the one that the the 2012 and 2013 versions be based off of. I think it may be a better deal to wait a few months and get a better laptop that will last years longer.

    Hopefully soon, as there are too many threads about this by people who can't be bothered to properly search.


    What changes do you think will be made?

    A search engine built in, which forces you to search first before creating a new blog or website or thread or porn.

    Something will go down.



    And I agree with mulo's recommendation of a thread.

    I have no idea when the next one will be out - MR's 'Buyer's Guide' pages are as good as any.

    Apple like to build machines at particular price points, and choose the spec to hit those price points. I would expect the prices to stay the same, but the spec to improve.

    The major change I'd hope for in 2011 is for Apple to start using USB3 or LightPeak. Firewire800 is looking really slow for external drives now - and we need a faster external interface standard. If it was my money, I'd wait for this.

    I'd also expect them to start offering SSD across the whole range - not just the MBA.
