All of the MacBook Pros have had upgrades halfway through their life cycles. They were all CPU bumps that are mostly negligible. This year, however, the CPU was bumped a slightly higher amount and they actually put in a 6770M that has about an 82% higher memory processing capacity and a 15% faster pixel-pushing capacity. Does anyone else think that this marks a change in Apple strategy, one where they will start shipping decent video hardware in MacBook Pros? I was hoping the Intel-NVIDIA dispute would be worked out for next year or at least 2013, so that an NVIDIA GTX 670M 2GB (2012) or an NVIDIA GTX 770M 3GB (2013) could be added. I know that those cards are slightly over Apple's TDW, but perhaps an option could be added to trade the optical drive for a more powerful GPU. If not, they can add an HD 7770M 2GB (2012) or an HD 8770M 3GB (2013) for an AMD card. Does anyone else hope/think this will happen? I got the feeling Steve was opposed to putting a more powerful GPU into the MacBook Pros. We can all hope!
