    No chance in hell of a FW400.

    Maybe some extra USB's but don't expect too much. It will be exactly the same as the 15.4", just bigger obviously :p

    It looks like FW400 and matte displays are a thing of the past. It's really unfortunate that Apple snubbed the people that supported them and helped build the "Pro" reputation. We Photographers, Graphic Designers and other creatives prefer those matte displays for color critical projects. Although my unibody 15" MPB is outstanding, it is a challenge to make sure that my images are delivered at the standard that my clients are accustomed to.

    I imagine the 17" display is going to be a major challenge to keep in the vertical position. Others are commenting on weak hinges so imagine the added weight of the 17" display.

    Not for nothing but if the new MBP is affecting your work this way then maybe you should have stuck with the previous model which is still a great computer and had the Matte option.

    You are a fool if you do color critical work on a laptop screen, matte or gloss.

    Ain't that the truth. Invest the thousands of dollars you have laying around on an Eizo.

    I think Apple may potentially create a solution for the matte problem. Possibly just a form of treated glass? I think that's the best you can hope for if it bothers you that much (I've used it in a variety of places and it simply isn't a problem for me)

    i think anyone is kidding themselves if they think it'll be anything more than a larger 15'' with maybe 1 extra USB port.

    high res screen.. one extra USB port

    i hope the bat life isn't horrible and the screen stays up!

    Honestly, I don't see why they can't just make the expresscard slot the wider 54 version instead of the 34.

    Lol @ OllyW, I had no idea why you said that (but i get it now)...a 204 inch laptop screen is a bit on the big side.
