    I bought a MacBook a couple of weeks ago and had been regretting not spending the extra $ on the MacBook Pro. Luckily my wife started complaining about how much nicer the MacBook was than her old Dell laptop. A light immediately came on in my head. I get the MacBook Pro, and my wife gets the MacBook that she was drooling over. :D

    To be honest we had been a PC family for years. I dealt with all of the security issues and frankly was looking for a better way. :apple:

    Congrats! I went from a MBP to a MB and back to a MBP. The screen size was the clincher for me.

    Congrats on the new computer! Don't get too consumed with it and start neglecting your wife though...

    In the market for MBP...

    ...now that I am ready to go shopping, pictures of the new MBP 2009 form factor appear, also talk about some overdue improvements... What shall I do? Here is my solution, I buy now the MBP 17" high res. glossy, 4Gig Ram, 200GB, 7200rpm HDD. When the new one is in the shelves the shop exchanges old for new for a small extra payment.

    Does anyone think the new 17" MBP's are going to be out by Jan./Feb. 09??

    What is going to be new in August?

    I read on AI that there will be some upgrades on MBPs in August. What would we be able (realistically) to expect?

    I think most people think that since Montevina is being shipped on July 14th that :apple: will hae the MBP update within a few months. Seems realistic to me.
