    I bought MBP 2.5Ghz early 2008 model. And after three and half years, our wonderful relationship has sadly ended. The authorized repair shop in my country said it’s something in the BIOS and he can only replace the whole motherboard for 800$.

    Now I have one question and once concern:

    -Should I buy the current MBP or there is something new in the horizon, I heard about new model (MBP thin!) is it worth waiting? Or just buy the current MBP (or even repair my old MBP for 800$)?

    -I’m really concerned about my itunes (music/playlists/music count), Safari bookmarks and iPhotos. Can those be exported to the new MBP from the old HD?

    Many thanks :D
