    From now until June, will there be any changes made to the MacBook Pro? Any announced changes?
    Possible price drop?

    Price drop - No
    Spec increase - Likely

    Plus the Back-to-School promo will probably return and that means free/discounted iPods.

    No. That's how Apple have been the last few years. Hold the price but upgrade the interior - bigger HD, more RAM, better processor....

    You must be new to apple.

    1. Changes = Speed bum, at that is only a possibility before June.
    2. Price - "Drop"......they do not have this term in their business model...
    3. Announced changes = Rumored changes, heaps of fake claims and alot of wishful thinking, apple never announce. And all this hype ends in people bitching that they did not get the next "dream machine" and that apple got it wrong....

    What is guaranteed, 17" MBP sometime next month.....

    I hope sooner and add USB 3.0

    If Intel had a 90% loss in 3rd quarter of 2008...then I believe they may release this chip earlier than the date of 4th quarter 2009 to push revenues up.

    people are not going to buy a new computer for just a minor upgrade of processing has to be a signicant noticable change from current core 2 duo power.

    The nehalem mobile chip has been in testing since 2007 so I'm sure it's just a matter of time...

    Maybe no price drops on the apple site but why on earth would you buy from apple? Full retail price plus tax?

    I have watched prices drop on the new unibody Macbook pro 17". Not a lot so far but at this point its down to $2,639.99, shipped and the price keeps dropping every few days.

    Apple will sell this same laptop to me for 2,800+6% sales tax, so $2,968.
