    www.mbp12.com got me thinking...

    And I know there are better specs available but I'm trying to be realistic. I would drop 2K on this easily. Although it would probably cost over 3k.

    I changed the color and size real quick in photshop. And the keyboard is from the apple site.

    My dream Mac would be a 17" MacBook Pro, but reality (and the wife) will probably dictate that a 20" iMac or MacMini will probably be my next system. Even then, it will probably be a year or so.

    The one sitting on my desk that I'm typing this on.

    Everyone asks this question all the time and all I want is something that can run Adium, Firefox, Mail, and iTunes at the same time. :p

    Like many others, it'd be the Mac Enthusiast, or Mac Semi-Pro.

    smaller tower. Maybe the 3Ghz "Yorkfield" C2D processor 2x6MB L2-cache, 1.33Ghz FSB, 2 internal HD bays, 2 PCI slots, blah blah blah.

    @ OP, is that 12" MBP thing real? (edit: I mean... is there actually any substance for speculation that a 12" MBP is due in the future?)

    But anyway, if you want a BlackBook Pro now in 15 or 17 look at www.colorwarepc.com :)

    No, there are a just a lot of loyal powerbook users that want one. I have no reason to believe that it will actually come to be... especially since Apple has been really cheap about using MacBook Parts for the Air... the Air should have been a 12" machine.. Footprint is more important than thickness and Apple should know that.

    But I can dream can't I? I would even settle for them just making the MacBook come in 12" and have the AIR be the only 13.3 inch.

    Thank you! I had been trying to figure that one out haha. :rolleyes:

    My dream Mac would probably the newest Macbook Pro (the most expensive one) with maxed out RAM.

    But I can't afford it. So I am probably just going to buy the cheapest Macbook or the one in the middle. :p I only need like $735 more haha wow >_<

    I love the iMac. I would love a 30" one that's a tad skinnier and got rid of the lower part of the machine. Also, they should include slots for SD cards and such, and more USB ports, oh and ambient lighting in the back, OMG and they should include light-up indicators on the black part of the glass (I will do a mock-up and edit this post later) that are touch sensitive as well.


    The things I would do if I was in charge of design at Apple....

    .... hehehe ;)

    * I know I just posted my dream Mac above, but the thread title says "ATM" so, at this particular moment, this is my dream mac.:cool:

    iBook G4 (Yes, I said G4)
    2.0 GHz
    2 GB RAM
    250 GB HDD
    Combo Drive (I do not need a Superdrive, don't give me one.)

    Essentially, the specs of a MacBook inside an iBook G4 case.
