The most unfounded gripe I am hearing is "Omigosh 3MB cache that is so underpowered apple you suckz!" It is my impression that a large majority of users have no idea of what kind of real impact cache size has. The 4MB on previous models was plenty, and I firmly believe you will be hard-pressed to find a situation in which the difference between 6 and 3MB cripples performance. To those of you who are mad Blu Ray has been left out. The format war has only very recently been decided, and much too late for it to be placed in the latest product. Do you think Apple wants obsolete technology in their products? Hardly. Do you think it would be a wise marketing strategy to offer expensive HDDVD/Blu Ray combo drives? Factor X is wrong about the case. The case is likely going to be re-designed around the forthcoming montevina chipset, which is smaller than santa rosa. If you don't like the current MBP/MB, then wait. I think if you look at the spec increases given that the price has remained the same, you will realize you are getting your money's worth.
