    Next Macbook pro update how much better can it get!

    Iv noticed alot of people that bought the Oct 2008 - unibody macbook/rpro have bought the latest update summer 2009.

    How much better would the next update have to be for others to buy the next updated version of macbook pro 13".

    The only good thing about this new 13" is the FW800 Port.. No Digital Audio in, that stupid Battery, Display got worse for some models, Sata speed halved.
    A 500€ PC Notebook has better Specs. :/

    It could have all of the following:

    - Removable battery
    - FireWire 3200
    - USB 3.0
    - Blu Ray BURNER
    - Quad-core CPU
    - ExpressCard 2.0 (lack of a PCMCIA slot is why I never bought a PowerBook 12" (=> no laptop until my snatching of a prev gen 15" just in case))

    The only reason I upgraded to the Pro, because this upgrade wasn't exactly a speed bump. This upgrade was pretty big, as this computer deserved the name MacBook Pro. They also changed the architecture of the Logic Board, and that requires more planning than upgrading the processors. I will not be upgrading to the next 13" Pro, because I'm pretty sure that they won't do anything big like changing the design, etc.

    For the next Pro, I think that they will upgrade the processor, HDD, and possibly RAM.

    But others are saying this is mearely just a small speed bump.

    And next year will be the major speed bump with the new processor chip. And maybe a quod processor next year.

    How much differnce does it make having a 1.5 rather then a 3.0 sata drive?

    The macbook pro 13" is still more then 10% faster then the previous 13" unibody macbook.

    Unless you're doing serious video editing, photo editing, or anything really intensive, a quad processor won't really matter for the light-average users. An SSD should smooth over and speed issues for daily use.

    Just buy now.

    A feature that should be added which i havnt read from others which WILL be useful and others MAY also like to have is:

    Fingerprint recognition
    Simply swipe your finger over the biometric fingerprint sensor to log-in and unlock your computer.
    (similar that on a vaio TT)

    and maybe:

    With 1366x768 (WXGA) high resolution and true 16:9 aspect ratio, this new display offers the best possible digital media experience. Enjoy blockbuster movies with no or reduced black bars top and bottom.

    Any maybe even lighter

    Don't think so.

    Yay! Let's put a gimmicky unlocking system in our computer that inevitably gets dirty and locks the user out of their machine! Oh, and cut a new hole in our case for it!

    Any real movie is 2.39:1, so 16:9 is absolutely worthless in getting rid of black bars.

    LOL, I hope you were being sarcastic. Fingerprint readers are lame, and 1386 x 768? Laptops aren't portable DVD players.

    I wasnt being sarcastic.

    Also

    Seamless 3G mobile broadband macbooks should get 3g just like the vaio details below:

    The VAIO TT is a powerful communications companion. With embedded 3G VAIO “everywair”* on several models, it’s easier than ever to keep in touch with colleagues, clients and friends while on the move. Enjoy speeds of up to 7.2 mbps and experience uninterrupted mobile broadband within 3G coverage areas. Access your emails and the internet wherever you can find a phone signal.

    Reception is improved by 15 to 20% with two antennas discreetly integrated into the LCD bezel. The 3G module uses the first class local T-Mobile network in the UK. A T-Mobile SIM card is included complete with a free trial, or you can use your existing service provider. Total freedom to stay connected and in touch wherever you are.

    Included copies of Nanosaur and Bugdom

    In other words, I can't think of much...maybe blu-ray if it's feasible

    Asterisk yours, explanation mine:

    "3G speeds only available in select parts of select cities. Speeds may vary and may never actually reach 7.2 Mbps. No data service available in over 50% of the country."

    There's no point.

    And to Blu-ray?

    There's no point.
