    What is the most likely addition that will come to the 15" MBP in the coming months? Based on the conversations on this forum it looks like screen resolution would be top of most people's list - is the resolution likely to change?

    I would love to get the 15" but the low res is a put off. The 17" is just a bit big for me.

    Screen resolution is definitely what I want the most before I purchase a Macbook Pro. The 15" is the model I will be getting, I doubt they will put it at the same 1900x1200 as the 17" , I am expecting an upgrade to 1680x1050. That would be a great improvement over 1440x900.

    Yeh as the first poster said. I really want to see USB 3.0 in every companys computers by september. USB 3.0 is much better than 2.0 and can support really fast speeds.

    I also really want to see the superdrive made removable, e.g you can either slot an hardrive or Superdrive in there.

    Screen resolution is a good upgrade and perhaps a 3.0USB and a few more of them would be nice.

    I laughed at that so much but what would be the point if it couldnt support snow leopard.:D

    I would like to see better processors in the macbooks, especially since we have had 2.0Ghz-3.0GHz dual core CPU's for the last 3 years.

    USB 3 would be neat, as would bluray, but who wants to pay the price premium for those? Not me... I'm hoping for the screen res bump.

    I didn't think about USB 3, that would be amazing. It would future-proof my computer for a while.

    If the 15in Macbook Pro gets 1680x1050, will the 13in Macbook Pro get 1440x900?

    Arrandale and the 240M aren't significant enough for you?

    Hell no
    We want a new OS, updated CPU, GPUs, USB, FW and antiglare screen option... ;)

    Can't see why USB 3 isn't feasible by February 2010.

    Feature less the optical drive.

    Air shape.

    OLED display.

    3G card.

    BluRay - exact opposite of my first idea - probably not with Apple.

    USB 3.0.

    eSata

    I do like the bay idea. Put a module for extra battery, optical drive, extra drive, or maybe something else. Would be very cool but not like Apple.

    Anti-Glare display would make a lot of people happy.

    Liquid cooled CPU and Graphics to make a Quad Core Scream without heat.

    Nice thread.

    1680x1050 should be pretty sweet. Especially for that work with graphics and spreadsheets and don't want to carry the massive 17 inch.

    +1 for resolution boost. I used to not care about blue ray but then I realized that Star Trek would come out on blue ray and I want to see the Enterprise in high res.

    USB 3.0 will be neat and I'll have to get a new computer next year sometime

    I had an optical drive bay on my old dell laptop that could be swapped with a battery (never mind that the battery didn't take up every last cubic centimeter like the new ones) but it goes against the main purpose of the unibody construction method.

    Quad core if the battery can handle it.

    Finally the PowerBook G5.

    I expect Arrandale and a new GPU.

    Arrandale
    USB 3.0
    Optional Matte Screen

    BlueRay won't happen... I think Apple will ditch optical drives before they pick up a new standard. Apple is all about digital content... it's part of their business model and BlueRay contradicts this.

    Just opinion.
