I've been debating endlessly in my head about when to buy my first Macbook Pro. I've settled on the Macbook Pro 17". But i'm disappointed in the lack of an LED backlit screen. I would like it to have an eSATA port built in, (the external express cards are pretty cheep. But I like a clean look to my computing.) Now that the Mac Pro Penryn chips are pretty much confirmed before the end of the year, the rumors of the Macbook Pro Penryn are likely to come at Macworld in January. I want to buy my Macbook Pro to run Final Cut Studio 2 and work on building my side video editing business, (it's been a long time comming.) My fulltime job has really kept me busy at the moment. So even if I bought it this month, i'd still have to probably hold out till Xmas to really get into working with it. So my questions are: 1. Does waiting for the Penryn Macbook Pro thats likely in January make sense for me? Seeing as I don't really have the time to devout to playing with it till December anyway? 2. Do all the Final Cut Studio 2 applications work well in the current top of the line Macbook Pro 17"? I was shopping around in August but decided to wait. The time flew by, so i'm considering putting my purchase on hold till January so i'll get a top of the line model for my money.
