    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!

    :D

    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.
