    I bought a 2.33ghz MBP about two weeks before the update and am completely satisfied. Although its not the newest thing on the market it is in no way obsolete. Be happy about your purchase. Remember that there will always be something newer or better than what you have so dont worry.

    Me too... this recent update is pretty incremental. MacWorld seems to be getting about 2-5% faster speeds depending on the task; nothing to get concerned about.

    The cases are the same, same ports. Perhaps I'd have liked the opportunity to upgrade to 4gb of RAM instead of 3... but 3gb is enough for page layout and Photoshop, and 2gb modules over here are still really expensive relative to the marginal gains.

    This will keep me going until 2010-11 when we'll see some amazing machines.

    I agree, but it all depends on each owners needs.

    If that extra 1GB of RAM, or that new video card, would make a significant difference to an existing MBP owner then new definitely does matter.

    For the vast majority, though, the previous model of MBP will remain a powerful and useful tool long into the future.

    I've heard a lot of people talking about obsolete technology here during the last few days. Floppy drives are obsolete. CRT monitors are obsolete. Computers often quickly become outdated, but it takes many years for a system to become so outdated that it is no longer useful to its owner - and only then can it really be classed as obsolete.
