    Hey
    Any body know if a new model of the MacBook Pro coming soon. I'm thinking of buying one soon and don't want to get the old model.

    If so what changes would apple do?

    Thanks

    Define "soon". Q1 2011 seems to be the time for MBP update

    Apple is done with their hardware for 2010. While many folks would love to see an update, in the same vein as the MBA, they'll have to wait as HH stated. Most likely first quarter 2011

    Wait for the new Intel Sandy Bridge processor due out the 1st quarter of 2011 probably (if you can). It's a major architectural change. If you do a search for Sandy Bridge on Google, you'll find information. :)


    This is from:http://www.appleinsider.com/articles/10/11/16/intel_confirms_ces_launch_of_sandy_bridge_processors.

    According to the invitation, Intel PC Client Group general manager Mooly Eden will show off the new processors, which will include the "world's fastest processor," at CES, Electronista reports. The new processors are expected to replace the Nehalem line of chips currently used in Apple's Core i5 and i7-equipped iMacs and MacBook Pros.

    ...and Sandy Bridge may not even be used in the MBP 13, according to some sources.

    I doubt it will be. They have yet to even adopt Arrandale...

    1 lb heavier than the 15". I have one. And it's true, I can lift it with one hand (applause).

    This. The 17" really is not the cumbersome unless you have muscular dystrophy or something...the screen alone is worth it

    Two words - college desks. My 13" fits about perfectly, and it's nice not to have to buy a bigger backpack for the 17 (mine would only fit a 15)
