CNET says so... And the post's author Brooke Crothers has been a big MBA guy since the beginning. Would make sense, given that the ULV Sandy Bridge chips should be around by then, and the Sandy Bridge Graphics are at least as good as the 9400m. http://news.cnet.com/8301-13924_3-20031434-64.html Wonder if this thread will keep the "should I buy now or wait?" threads at bay at all? My guess is no. Hopefully this update brings back the Backlit Keyboard.
