    Hi everyone!!!
    Just a couple of quick questions? I am soon to be a new user of Mac (looking at Mac Book Pro 17" and the Mac Pro).

    First question:
    Are there any video capture cards that I can have installed in the Pro that I can connect both analogue and DV camcorders directly to so i can use for video editing and use as a desk top cam for conferencing?

    I currently have a Turtle Beach Video Advantage PCI card that is hooked up to both types of cam on my clone Windows XP PC.

    Second question:
    Does anyone have any information on the new models of the MacBook Pro laptop17 inch model please? I know they have updated the internal hardware. I was reading on a few sites that there will be a similar case upgrade like the new 13 and 15 inch MacBook Pro models etc..

    Thank you!

    They actually haven't updated the internal hardware. Not the important parts, at least. MacWorld 2009 is the most likely time for an external/internal update for the 17" MacBook Pro.

    And the Mac Pro will get Nehalem soon thereafter. Wait for both if at all possible.
