    Next gen processors.
    Next gen graphics.

    Can't you just go to Apple's website and see for yourself ?

    It's not very 'next level' if all the other notebook manufacturers were already at that level months ago.

    I think it's the iMac that is most likely undergoing a drastic change. Any industrial design change for Macs always happen to the iMac first.

    Apple doesn't care about what you think is next level. What do you want ? A super computer from mission control in NASA ? They put the latest industry standard hardware upgrades in their latest computers and are offering upto $200 price drops on higher end models. Please don't hag about it anymore, seriously.

    Clearly the 13" was not allowed to proceed to the "next level".

    They're on "the next level" for the simple fact that they now have the same technology as other manufactures, but run a much superior OS.

    +1 - Do you really think Steve would have said "You will want to wait for the second refresh of the MBP's in the fall and don't buy the first one in April. That's where the next level comes into play."

    What sorta pipe you been smoking???

    Oh, the graphics to Apple to the next level meaning beyond 9600 GT (I mean 8600 rebranded), to the 330 which is roughly two years behind ATI's offerings... so next level doesn't mean something one would expect to get today in a $700 PC notebook like an ATI 5830 or even 5XXX... it just means it's beyond the nearly four year old 8600 GT graphics!!! Now we know.

    What a JOKE this "non-update" was... not. If one wants a 13" MBP, they waited for nothing. If one wants a 15" MBP, they got what they should have got for their money a year ago.

    Steve Jobs definitely smokes CRACK! Him and his "next level" can piss off!

    The year isn't over so there's still reason to hope. I recall the relatively disappointing early 2009 iMac update followed by the fairly large late 2009 update. I'd say there may be a chance of that happening with the MacBook Pros. I'm not saying that's likely though.

    Another interpretation of that statement could refer to those rumors of touchscreen Macs later this year, assuming those rumors are true.

    I don't think he actually said that. I'm not sure he included "Macs" in his sentence.

    Didnt Jobs say "apple is going to take macs to the next level in 2010" or something?

    I dont wanna be one of the guys who talks ****. But im kinda disapointed by this "update". It lacks so many things

    Since when did you speak for 'everyone' you douchebag.

    Stop abusing those that criticise the refresh, it's a discussion, argue your point but don't come out with a load of bullcrock.

    Jobs is very tall. You have to understand for HIM to reach the next level isn't very hard compared to the average person. You see, he bases all production upgrades and innovations on his height. Thus the lack of features in the iPad as well :)

    What does it lack? We got new CPUs and GPUs, bigger HDs, better battery, more RAM in low-end... What were you hoping for? Quad core i7 + ATI 5870 in low-end?

    Maybe we should take the civility on this forum to the next level.

    Lets see its only April so don't give hope yet. You are honestly ignorant if you expected blu-ray, usb3, and other crap like that this update. I believe the next one will be awesome, so lets check out what happens later this year. I believe 2010 has more to hold for Apple and the MBP and Mac its self so be patient and if you don't like it don't buy it. No one is forcing you to buy a computer and a Mac at that
