That i7 Processor is tempting!

    Well I got the previous version of the MBP 13", let me just say it is great!
    However I am tempted to upgrade to the 15" with the i7.

    The size of the 13" is great, though the laptop is a bit heavy, it is very portable. Upgrading to 15" would probably not be as portable.

    The 15" has a hi res option and also the very powerful i7 processor.

    Or the sensible thing would be to just use this machine for a bit longer and wait till the new models with USB 3.0, light peak and an oled screen come out!

    Do you need the power of i7? If you're going to upgrade with every update, you must have a thick wallet. I would keep what you have unless you really need the i7

    BTW, as Bloke said, we won't see those anytime soon.

    USB 3.0 - 2011
    LightPeak - 2011 at the earliest
    OLED - Maybe 2013 or something, it really has some serious disadvantages as well

    You never know...considering how ground-breakingly innovative Apple is with their product releases.
