Stuff a 2010 Mac Pro (with dual hexacores @ 3.33 GHz, 32 GB RAM and 4x2TB RAID 0 array) into a MBA, plus give it 4 USB 3.0 ports, 512GB SSD, 1GB ATI card, and a battery that lasts 12 hours while rendering HD video.

...or I'll just keep my aluminum MacBook :D

- 15" 1080p OLED glossy display.
- 2TB SSD
- 32GB RAM
- Graphics card able to run Crysis on ultra high.
- BluRay reader / writer.
- 3.33GHZ Hexacore
- 4 USB 3.0 ports.
- 24 hour battery
- As thin as a Macbook Air yet somehow still has an optical drive.

Now that would be perfect.

If a Macbook were that perfect, Macrumors would have no reason to exist.

I LOVE my new 15" MBP i7....I wish it had more ram though and a 1TB HDD.

PERFECT MBP would be:

13"
Core i7
1GB video card
1TB or 512gb ssd
8gb ram
REAL speakers.

You guys have some interesting ideas about your perfect macbooks!

I'm pretty happy with what I have, though I'm toying with the idea of upgrading to 4GB of RAM sometime in the next few months.

There's one thing that I've noticed about my usage, though, and I'm sure I'm not alone in this, which is that I hardly ever use the battery! I mainly use my macbook at work, home or the library and carry it from place to place, plugging it in each time.

What do you reckon about this?
I don't think leave it plugged in all the time is very good for the battery.

My perfect MBP (physically impossible in the immediate future).

2TB HDD
12GB RAM
13" 1440*900 display
Dual 320M 1GB (SLI!!!)
Blu-Ray (If they insist on Optical drives)
If no ODD, I want a read-only USB key for my OSX install - repair disc
4 USB ports
Mini HDMI
Mini-Display
Optical/3.5MM audio
SD Card reader
WWAN
Wireless N
Gigabit Ethernet
On-board iPhone/iPad dock (fold out from side or palm rest)
Optional 3" colour LCD on top of lid for stat/email notifier etc so can be checked without being woken.

This at $1200 AUD would be AWESOME!! but very unlikely even when possible.
