    You know what ticks me off a bit is this is the headline on the Macbook Pro section on Apples site. Its been that way since the last update hasn't it? I have seen this a couple months ago and find this to be false advertising! Its just wrong IMO.

    New is a relative and undefined term. Absolutely no false advertising.

    Well, they took off the whole "new" labels from the last update. So it's near like we knew. Patience is a virtue.

    Hmm. I just went to apples website and it says "the MacBook pro family" with no "new" in the headline. Maybe you read it wrong?

    Well this is actually good news when it comes to the MacBook pro being updated, because some people were thinking that apple will not release the new lineup until the iPad is released, because they thought it would steal the thunder of the iPad. Now, as of yesterday the only thing that was on apples main page was the iPad, and nothing else. Now, as of today, they have the mini icons on the bottom displaying aperture 3, iPhone 3Gs, the new iMac, and then the MacBook pro family. I think this is good news because now apple isn't scared to display different products on their homepage.

    It's been that way for a long time. What's the big deal? They're new until something newer is released.

    THis is just good marketing.

    Mr.noob goes in and orders the macbook thinking they updated because he doesn't know that C2D is old... then he's happy because he got the "new" gear.

    I can't belive we're so freaky dudes waiting for a new MBP like if it would be a child!
    That New MBP Family thing has been there forever, however the apple.com "New MBP and New iMac" Signs are just to fill up, you'll see in a few hours, max next week, something like "The New Faster MBP" or something like that, Not sure what apple would write :)

    I recon Apple will leave it called 'The New MacBook Pro Family' and add 30% faster or something in a button.

    Says your attachment is invalid, however going to the site itself the prices look the same to me.
