I'm on the edge of buying a new MBP, but before I go for one of those quad core 17 inchers, I would like to know what to expect from the announced/rumored update this fall/xmas might bring to the (big screen) pro line: Complete new design? - yes, that might be nice, but the form factor and weight is not so much of an issue for me and for the 17 inch built. New processors? - Are any new processors in the making? Aren't the current quad cores still the hottest chips around? New internal architecture? - Could there be some kind of new voodoo architectural update that would make everything better, snappier, more energy efficient etc.? New/different main components - Ok, optical drive might get dropped, and that might make room for more battery/second hd or ssd /slimmer design .... I think many of the new things are mostly beneficial to the Airs, but I cannot see If they would make really sense in the pro lineup, especially the 17 inch which is my favorite format by far. What do you guys expect? If there is no big step to be expected performance wise (but only in design) I would gladly get one macbook pro of the current lineup. If not, I might hold on to my SantaRosa for a little longer... Thanks for your input! Herzliche Grüße from Berlin, J.
