    I'd strongly recommend you get the current MacBook Pro's as if they are to be replaced with a new design, you know the current design has reached its maximum performance. I've just bought the current 2.5Ghz mid MacBook Pro and couldn't be happier.....far snappier than my iMac G5 2.0Ghz I had before. Plus I won't be too disappointed if Apple do launch a new MacBook Pro.....if I need to upgrade in 18 months, then I will.

    My golden rule with Apple is to always buy the rev B products since they will iron out the little niggles and bugs when first launching anything.

    I would buy the current version...Apple is likely to refresh the MBP in sept-oct with the new chips. The most recent upgrade was at the end of Feb. and a June update (especially in light of the 3G iphone) is highly unlikely)..

    If you listen to the people on these boards, you will never upgrade your computer..you'll just keep waiting until next tuesday..

    I'm typing this on a new MacBook Pro 15" 2.4GHz. And I have to say it's fantastic! A wonderful upgrade from my previous 12" G4 1GHz PowerBook! That said, there may be an announcement in June but I wouldn't hold my breath. And if it is a new design please remember that it will be a rev A, and therefore you will effectively be a beta tester.

    I can't see that any new design would be radically different, considering the MacBook Air is not so different to the MacBook Pro in terms of design. It may get thinner, but then part of that is hardware constraints - look at all the compromises that had to go into the MB Air! - and it's not as if the current design is a brick either. I love mine.

    Still, you might as well wait a month or two if you can afford the luxury. I can't see that they will be considerably faster until 2009 though.

    Indeed you are correct, I just saw that now that I took a closer look. Pretty Powerbook regardless. Haha!
