    This is my wishlist for a MBP upgrade:

    1. Blu-Ray Drive /w HDMI output
    2. Better heat management (my uncles mbp...gets too hot...even macbooks)
    3. Upgraded video card and memory
    4. Penryn
    5. Casing redesign (the current one if fine...but, the look hasn't been changed in so long...)

    In front of my MacBook Pro
    Sounds interesting. I guess a case redesign is possible. BR drive sounds like a stretch though. Video card I'd fine now IMO. Heat management is tricky with such a thin thing. BTW, hdmi isn't a computer thing, we have dvi.

    1. Apple is part of the Blu-Ray association. They are long overdue to include Blu-Ray drives in their products. Time Warner and others making public announcements as of late to become full fledge Blu-Ray only is more than an incentive as well. :cool:

    2. HDMI is included in ALOT of laptops that I have seen in stores...so why can't Apple add HDMI to their "high resolution" models? Makes little sense to have a display that can output 1080p but, no HDMI output? Awkward in my opinion. :confused:

    3. Video card yea...can live with the current one, but the heat issues really have to be addressed. It feels like I have an Xbox 360 on my lap...:mad:

    Out of all of those...I really hope for Blu-Ray support and at least a change in heat management. The processors and graphics card are fine for what I need to do...even in the next few years.

    Blu-ray is only on high Sonys that i've seen.. Apple currently support both formats.. If Apple decides for BR the first Mac will get is MP then MBP

    But Apple is on the board of Blu-ray commission

    Same for HDMI on high Sonys..

    Better keep that laptop off your laptop,if you wanna have lil kids later on .. ;)

    HDMI is offered on Toshibas as well on top of other laptops I've seen...

    And may I ask how many HD-DVD Pixar movies have you seen? ZERO. Apple better offer Blu-Ray drives...*shakes fist in air*

    btw...i already have kids...so no worries i guess...

    HDMI would not be a smart move at this point. There are not enough displays supporting it. If Apple moves the ACDs to HDMI, sure. Of course you can always get a converter to go back to DVI, but what is the point of that if most people would need to do that if it had HDMI today?

    HDMI is not needed to output 1080, DVI can do that just fine.

    I can see display port taking off on notebooks once it hits the mainstream. Intel is now supporting display port.

    Well the Sony units were the only ones that i've seen lately .. I'm not saying that toshibas have them also @ this point ..

    HD-DVD is region free.. :D

    Blu-ray is still region locked .. :p
