    Read post #20 of the link above.

    Is this true? I'm entering college and have been wanting to get rid of my TANK of a Dell XPS asap. I was really looking forward to a MBP release soon.

    I guess we'll just have to wait and see....
    I'd love an updated MBP too :)

    I'd be happy with the current stuff in a new package, if that package is better.

    I will totally agree with him, because we are talking about MBP not MB.

    if, it is MB case it will be different as MB uses X3100 (intel GPU) and the current had problem with GPU, seems some delay in MB's not MBP

    Make it so, number one. :D

    I always expected that Apple would have some sort of special deal with Intel.

    i hope that happens in june, i would love it, i am sick of waiting for my pro for college, but if they do switch platforms, does anyone know what the 15" processor speed would be? would it be 2.66? like the imacs, or what?

    It's not that the chipset won't be ready for release, its that the centrino 2 platform won't be...but Apple doesn't use the centrino platform so booyeah.

    But as long as I have it by august I'm good.

    I like your thinking. WWDC is only a couple of weeks away.

    This looks promising, one thing i dont fully understand is 'The other was a clerical error on Intel's part when filing certification paperwork for the chipset's wi-fi component, which has delayed FCC approval.'

    Does the whole montevina platform need fcc ( whatever that is lol) approval (therefore delaying the whole thing) or just the wi-fi chipset?

    Also, is it likely that intel would release montevina to just apple and not the other competitors? Companies like Dell would surely cause a fuss over this...

    But... i am new to this and am just as keen to get a MPB asap ass everyone else.

    I dunno, to me it seems like Apple is content with the silver aluminum look for now. I mean, the MBA looks just like a MBP but thinner...the only difference is the keyboard really.

    Like others have pointed out, the MBP doesn't use integrated graphics, and Apple so far uses non intel wi-fi cards. So there is a chance they aren't directly affected by this delay from Intel. We may see new MBP's with updated CPU's and a new GPU at early June (June 3 maybe) if we are lucky. I am assuming the new CPU's are available without problems though.
