    Right... there's an official "waiting for Montevina," but I'm willing to bet that some people are skipping Montevina + Penryn and waiting for Montevina+Nehalem. Me personally, I have a laptop that can last until either upgrade, but I'm just waiting first. If I think Montevina+Penryn is a substantial upgrade, then I will. But if not, I'll wait for Montevina+nehalem. But, I'm also waiting for a case redesign. So whichever one comes first on that, I'll take. Right now, 2.6GHz and 4GB RAM ought to last me.

    Now, the other thing is, it seems through a popular consensus that people are actually considering either the Montevina+Penryn upgrade, or the Montevina+Nehalem upgrade would be the staging ground for the new case redesign, after 5 years(I still have my old PowerBook G4 sitting in the corner of my room as a memory of that). Now, opinions?

    It's not really only a "waiting for nehalem" thread, in my opinion. The reason that I started this thread, is that I believe from past consensuses, either the Montevina+Penryn, or Montevina+Nehalem versions of the MBP will be the staging ground for the case redesign(long needed). Maybe I should rename it to the Nehalem/redesign thread.

    So what do you all think? I'm thinking that either Nehalem or Montevina will bring about a case update, but a gut feeling(don't trust me on this, my gut feelings have never proved to be either wrong nor right) says that it's gonna be Nehalem. If it's Montevina, I'll get Rev. A of the new case, meaning the Nehalem. If it's nehalem, I'll get it instantly. Either way, I'm getting Nehalem :D Any one of you waiting for the redesign, or nehalem in specific?

    Guys, in case any of you need clarification, here is a good guide I found. looks like evidence points to only Montevina, or a stronger pointing to Nehalem for a case redesign. Seems like Nehalem it is for me... Hmmm... But I need a new battery methinks... My battery started only giving me 3 hours as of today... Normal charging routines... nothing changed... but it just did...

    The guide:

    I decided over the weekend that I'll be waiting for Nehalem. My 2.16 C2D MBP will be ~2 yrs old when Nehalem is due (got it in March '07). I am hoping for a case re-design, but it won't be a dal breaker....I'd love to have a magnetic latch at least.

    I want a redesign and hope it comes with the Montevina update...

    Yeah it will be Rev A, but the MacBook and MacBook Air seemed to have faired pretty well so far...
