We've all speculated on what Apple would do with the 13" MBP once it upgraded the 13" MBA to Core i5/i7 processors. Although the 13" MBP still (theoretically) offers more performance in terms of higher clock speeds, larger hard drives and greater RAM expandability, the lines are definitely blurrier today. I'm not ready to take the MBA plunge because of its limitations in those areas, but I'm hoping the next step for Apple is either: 1) Introduce an even higher-end 13" MBA [unlikely as they would have done it today] 2) Offer a higher-res 13" MBP. It makes ZERO sense that the 13" MBP is stuck at 1280 x 800, and it's the reason I had to buy a 15" MBP when they did the refresh a few months back. I'm assuming that Apple will go the second route along with a design refresh. I'm hoping it's this fall (eg October-ish)...I love my still new 15" MBP but I'd love something smaller/lighter. Oh, and I don't need an optical drive - you can get rid of that!
