I've been saving up to buy a MBP for some time; but now following the doubtful future of the Mac Pro and with the speculations that the MBP and Macbook Air may be merged, I'm back on the fence waiting to see what Apple does next. Apple really does not seem to be too keen on keeping the professional/prosumer customer base despite how good the sales of MBPs are. As much as I would like to think that Apple will likely just remove the optical drive from the MBP to bring its weight down, I have a feeling it will be "consumerized" to the extent the iMacs are when compared to the Mac Pros. I suppose Apple's thinking is that Thunderbolt will address all of our needs. Anyone else who is caught in the buying cycle a tad frustrated at all this uncertainty?
