The 13" MBP and Intel's dog IGP.
Can't blame 'em. It was just too embarrassing.
Having actually used the 2011 MBP tonight alongside the 2010 MBP, I'll take intel's dog IGP plus a far, far superior CPU than an MBP with an antiquated near 6 year old CPU architecture!
Funny how people on the internet feel that they can offer an opinion without actually trying something themselves first?

Well kid, fess up. How does she purr? Give us some comparisons to ol' bessie.
Nothing fancy - just put it through some paces and note the temps.
Is that a synonym for trollin'? (Actually, this guy should be arrested)
btw, the answer to the "No Formal MBP Event" is so simple you'll want to troll even more. Steve Jobs is sick.
Anyone who knows anything realizes that the CPU upgrade alone (discounting COMPLETELY everything else, which isn't even realistic) makes these THE Macbook Pros to own. They're the best ones they've ever made.
Any dissension from an obviously CORRECT statement will be interpreted correctly as "I don't want to admit the truth".
and the terrible battery life that they can't advertise anymore.
+1 for the reason being Steve's health right now.
What are people's update schedule anyway? If you have a macbook that is 2 or more years old, this is a great update, no?
Respectfully, it's _not_ his health, it's * HIS MASSIVE EGO * which prevented him from _allowing_ anyone else to present.
Technically it was simply a speed bump and a new I/O port so more like a refresh then a major update.
HUGE CPU overhaul
nVidia -> AMD
1066Mhz -> 1333Mhz RAM
Quad cores for 15"
i7 for 15"
i5 & i7 Dual Core SB for 13"
1GB GDDR5 on high ends
Camera is now 720p (not 1080p HD though)
Battery life is now measured in real-life usage
I'd say, including the battery life which I heard was, in real life on the 15", around 5-6 hours, this is a solid upgrade for anyone.
I don't think they've done formal event for any of the Mac refreshes for quite some time.
"Back to the Mac"
A formal event for a spec bump does not make sense. Come all, look at the higher numbers we're including in this update.
I think you're right. Not since unibody, right?
That was only for the MacBook Air which in the 11" form was a new product.
True, I never said that it was not a solid update - it is. It was simply nothing out of the ordinary that would merit a big event.
