    Nehalem Mobile is almost a year away, I'm waiting for Snow Leopard ( June-July 2009 )

    What IF Apple decides to stick with nVidia for it's chipset? I like to think highly unlikely but won't we be waiting forever? :eek:

    umm

    nehalem is the CPU not the chipset

    they can keep the nvidia chipset, the dual GPUS seem like a pretty neat idea, but nehalem is a replacement for penryn, not santa rose/ montevina

    I'm buying a REFURB Late 2008 Macbook Pro in January and selling it for Nehalem next October? Is that timing accurate?

    That's the way to do it!

    I'm most likely doing the same when the 4 way mobile CPU's come out.
    :D
