    According to AppleInsider:

    Turbo Memory is an optional feature, unique to Intel technology, that can access frequently used software applications twice as fast and reduce the amount of time it takes to turn on, or boot-up, a laptop by as much as 20 percent. In turn, this NAND flash-enabled feature lets users save on power consumption and increase battery life.

    I haven't seen anything to indicate that the new MBPs we're all anticipating will be equipped with this Turbo Memory option. Am I wrong about that? It seems like it would make a great addition to the MBP lineup.

    It's just a part of the Centrino Pro platform. Optional though.

    Dell is selling a 1 GB Turbo Memory option for a scant $49 bucks. Hopefully we'll at least be given the option to add it for a similar price.

    It'll definitely find its way to the MBP, whether it'll be included in the MBs is a good question. I'd hope so, but who knows what Apple is thinking.

    It's a mildy deceptive name, however. It would be better named "Turbo Hard Disk Cache"
