    Now who wishs they could afford this, I know I do. My Unibody MBP 15" is amazing but I would love up to 8 hours battery life.

    What about you's then. Would you sell your soul, to Steve?

    Hmm.. my soul, eh?

    Anyways, I just hope a 3rd party or Apple could bring such wonderful battery technology into the Unibody's... I'll pay THAT premium instead of going through troubles of getting rid of my MBPro and paying $2800 for that thing.. (More like $3000 in Canada for me :()

    Looks great, but $2800 is way too expensive for a notebook in my eyes. I'd rather build a more powerful windows desktop for half the price.

    it wouldnt be more powerful, but yes for the same specs it could be half or even quater the price.

    The only thing I like on it is the "anti-glare" option. It'll cost $50 more but you get less glass and a silver bezel so, IMO, that is exactly what a Macbook Pro should look like.

    This image demonstrates what Apple SHOULD have done with the design of all of the current laptops. That silver bezel is so much nicer looking than the ugly black one, and then all they'd need is a silver keyboard and we'd be set.

    It would have been truly awesome if they could have finagled a quad core CPU in there...

    upto 8gb of ram and 320gb standard drive thats pretty nice.

    though i couldnt justify 2800$ for it right now.
    id have to sell off my MacPro for that but then id have useless display iunless i forge down 100$ for that dvi-minidp ugh

    hopefully some prices will drop for the refubed MBP17" those are still nice quick machines.

    :rolleyes: Which would do you a whole lot of good if you need a notebook. These machines aren't aimed at consumers, they're aimed at professionals who need mobility. Those kind of people can justify the costs involved...

    Nice machine, but the RAM and HD are not user-upgradable. And Apple charges $1200 to upgrade the RAM. :eek:
