So after a long hiatus from the mac world, I wanted to jump back in and get a MBP for scientific work. After looking at the history the MBP 15 seems to consistently have Feb06/Oct06/June07/Feb08/Oct08/ release dates (every 8 months). So it would seem very strange if we didn't have a new one in June. The question is, does it get the new intel 32 nm processor? I really want a 17, but the other interesting thing I've found is that the 17s and 15s have always been released very close to each other (if not at the same time) and the biggest difference was in feb06 for the 15 and april06 for the 17. This still leaves 6 months with having the 17 on top before the oct06 15 release. However, with this october08 15 release and the feb09 17 release then there's only 4 months before the 17 will be outdone by whatever 15 comes out in june. No matter if it has 32 nm processors, it will probably outgun the current 17.
