Does anyone have an idea when we will see quad cores in the iMacs and MBPs? I don't really know much about TDP of current intel chips and the upcoming roadmap. I really need a new mac, and will probably buy a whitebook to tide me over, but as I can't afford one for a coupla months, a more permanent solution might have be just around the corner by then. I was wondering when ppl in the know are expecting quadcores to trickle down to the mobile/consumer line. I have thought about buying a MP but its way out of my budget, especially now they seem to come with less cores but cost more (in £, at least), besides 8 cores is prob overkill for me (unless I could pick up an 2008 model secondhand on the cheap). I had a dream the other day that Apple made the Mac Pro smaller, less powerful and with a cheaper desktop chip option and suddenly realized that I didn't need a midrange tower anymore because the mac pro had effectively become one. Definitely the lamest dream I've ever been annoyed enough to remember in the morning.
