    We don't know any better than you do.

    I'd never heard of Edius before, but having looked it up FCS seems like much better value for money.

    Was updated 11 days ago, so I'd say sometime in April next year.

    Just buy it now, theres nothing wrong with the current model.

    Not really, no new design, no fast bus, max processor available in the Netherlands is 2.6 and not 2.8, no speedier video card. So the only reason to buy a 17 inch would be the larger "mat" screen but I want the other things as well. Only update 11 days ago in the 17" was bigger drive (BTO).

    Comes with a larger drive standard and more RAM standard.

    Unless they got held up with the new model and are going to push it out a month later, and the spec boost was just temporary. But that would be bad marketing and would piss off quite a few people to update a product then update it again 1 month later. Again they could do this, they did something like this before with the iPhone and gave old users in store credit.

    Also if you want to wait for a new design you can pretty much say goodbye to a matte display unless you buy a current model.

    The next lot of chips from Intel is due out in April, with mobile Nehalem chips coming a few months after, so possibly no update until Q3 2009.

    I'd cut your losses and buy the 15" Macbook Pro, most of the owners on here say that the screen is far better than the old matte screen. And for things like colour correction etc. Notebook screens are crap, be it matte or glossy.

    The 2.4ghz 15" + a 20" Cinema Display or S-IPS Dell Monitor would be an excellent buy, and would save you $200 and give you a FAR BETTER screen for Final Cut.

    the 17" has HD resolution. If the 15" would have it I would buy that one since it is more postible.
