    I've been looking at tons of reviews for the ProBook.

    I'd really like to get one, I don't need it for anything special, I just want something to go on now and again, a bit of web designing and some photography. I have the spare cash, so none of this "you don't need a :apple: ProBook" Please.. It's really a desktop replacement, and something to last me a few years..

    I'd like to get the i7. 4GB.

    My question was I'm a fool but not such a fool, I want a SSD but not at £1000.00, could I buy the SSD somewhere else and install it in the ProBook?

    I would buy 4gb memory extra.

    With the 330m graphics card, would I be able to play such games as Bad Company 2? (On bootcamp of course)

    All in all I have around £2300 for a ProBook (I've had to buy 2 PC's in the last 3 years costing around £2500!) so I think it's a good invesement!


    and all these rumors of the new Probook 2011, just a quick question, if it is sandy bridge processors is it worth to wait for a few months until they release it or not, or would the i7 do a good job for the next few years.

    buy the ssd somewhere else, OWC is a good place, but whatever you do get one with a sandforce controller.
    the current i7 should do a fine job for years, the real question is if the thermal works in the MBP will allow apple to use a quad core, i personally don't think so, not before ivy bridge anyway.

    Since I'm still waiting for mod to move this thread to correct section.

    Can I replace the MBP graphics card for a better one

    10 minute job but you need a T6 driver to get the support pegs of the existing drive.
