    Ok this is just a little humor with all the posts and whining and waiting. I do work as a consultant for Apple and I haven't heard a thing. My opinion is their will be maybe a slight refresh and in the late spring early summer a few major changes. Lets face it us professionals are just a small part of the market that APPLE cares about and unfortunately thats the bottom line. Hope none of you are offended by my little bit of humor

    I see spelling errors, but no humour.

    I think the humour is the rumour here.

    This may be a joke or whatever, but it did get me to thinking about MBP updates. If they do actually go to the Core Ix processors, is it a big enough update to warrant an event, or do they just slip it onto the website? This isn't just a speed bump to Core 2, it is an entirely new line of processors.

    Apple should also take as much care with us Pro users too. I know they sell more of the bottom line products now a days but us pro user are what gives them the real cash and to spend 1000 to 2000 on a laptop or a workstation should be taken care of

    The service i do get though is brilliant form apple, just think we should see a update soon with these i7's

    Maybe the update is inside us all, and once Apple announces it, we'll realise that it wasn't enough just to want to see Uncle Unibody and Auntie Backlit-Keyboard, and it's that, if we ever go looking for our heart's desire again, we won't look any further than our own backyard. Because if it isn't there, we never really lost it to begin with!

    SadlyI HopeThisIsn'tTrue

    While Adding The new i Series Chips Would Probably Do Some Amazing things To The Computer I JUST Bought My Mac This Past Summer And Would Hate For It To Already Be "The Old MacBook Pro" Already But I'm Anxious To See When They Do With Them Though

    Your machine is still usable.

    And considering your logic, an update should only come every two to four years, when your Mac is ready to be replaced by something new.

    If you are so keen on getting the latest, sell your current Mac now, and buy the updated model. You will loose some money, but you can sleep better.

    And also what is the deal with capital first letters? I'm curious, as I see that quite often.

    Welcome to the technology world. Buying an Apple computer already gave you a long amount of time for having the "newest" model since they update less frequently than other brands. As many say, "Technology is out of date by the time you take it home," or something along those lines, haha.

    I am still quite content with my Early '08 MBP. I would love to have that new battery they put in those uMBP's and the curved bezel to pick them up easier, but I haven't seen a speed bump large enough to justify another $2000 purchase.

    On a side note, if the new uMBP's have i7's and provide a decent speed bump, my pristine condition '08 MBP will be for sale on eBay or anyone who has a good offer on here.

    The i5/i7 in the iMac are quad-core Lynnfields. The new MBPs are expected to use dual-core, four-thread Arrandales.
