    What are the chances that the next revision of the MacBook Pro(whether it comes out at WWDC or a sometime after) will get a decent graphics chip? For example, an ATI x1800 or something similar? This would really sell me on the high end model...come on Apple...

    I don't think it's going to happen. I'm thinking the intergrated graphics is here to stay on the consumer based notebooks.

    I think you need to re-read the OP.

    Wishing for a magic bus.
    Last I checked the Macbook Pro doesnt have integrated graphics.

    As for the x1800, I'm no graphics card guru, but I don't know if space and cooling restraints would be able to handle a higher end graphics card.

    Sure, it's definitely possible. The mobility version of the X1800 wasn't quite shipping by the time Apple were ready, so it wasn't an option the first time out.
