    now before i say anything, this isnt a thread to criticize the mbp, but rather just wondering if apple will incorporate some of the same technologies that are in this new asus laptop

    so anyway, the asus g50v-a2 is a new revision on a 15" gaming laptop. pretty cool internals, but the casing looks like something a 12 year old would love.

    - c2d montevina 2.53ghz / 1066mhz fsb
    - 4gb 800mhz ddr2 memory
    - 2x200gb 7200rpm hdd's
    - geforce 9700m 512mb gddr3
    - bluray drive
    - external sata port
    - led displays with changable computer performance modes


    now i know the mbp isnt really a gaming comp, but i dont see why some if not most of these technologies cant be incorporated into the next installment of the mbp. i feel like it would be falling behind as an elite notebook if apple does not use some of these. thoughts???

    You forgot to mention the price difference between the mbp and the ASUS. I think it's close to $1k.
