    Just wanted to know what kind of mix the forum users have.

    I own a 13" MBP that i bought this past July for my birthday. I sold my second generation White MacBook and put it towards the MBP. I was originally going to settle for the 2.26GHz model, but ultimately decided that the extra 300MHz would be worth it for the life of the machine.

    Never owned a Mac before. When I decided to buy one, I opted for a MacBook Pro and would have gotten one last month were it not for me accidentally stumbling across this website. -_-

    I have the 15" Unibody, coming from a white MacBook. I really didn't like the looks and especially the keyboard of the pre-Unibody ones, but really really love this one.

    Still rocking the one in my sig; early 2007 (bought in March that year), pre-Santa Rosa. Have the RAM maxed-out & it still does pretty well. Likely won't upgrade for another year, so it'll be plenty long in the tooth by then.:D

    Back in September, I bought the low end 13". I sold it two weeks ago and bought the 15". Very happy with it now.

    I like the faster processing speed and more memory and the bigger screen of course. :)

    I have a 2 year old 17" MBP C2D (2.5 Ghz, 4 GB RAM, 500 GB HDD), but I just ordered the new i7 27" iMac. Going to sell the MBP to help pay for the iMac.

    I've got a MBA now which has become my travel computer and don't feel the need to have 2 portables anymore. Looking forward to the huge new screen! :)

    I have a few that if disclosed would show my true age so I will simply say this 2.4 Ghz pre unibody model from Feb 2008 is my go to mobile machine and still has a real keyboard (not a fan of chicklets).

    I am throwing around the idea of "handing down" this model to the Mrs. if the new MBP prove to be significant upgrades and there are no first rev hardware issues. I'd love a decked out high res 13" but will stick with this tried and true (yes with the original 8600 GT) warrior until the next "new" models are not so new, or at the very least are released with no mass reported issues.

    I have a 2 year old 17 inch 2.4Ghz Core-Duo pre Unibody MBP. I have been very happy with it and became happier still after I upgraded to 6 gig of RAM last month. My MBP is my primary machine. Although I still have a desktop PC on my network, it goes mostly unused these days.

    I think it's remarkable that the distribution among the poll choices has been so even so far.

    I don't have any as yet. I'm waiting for the new one, but the wait is becoming incredibly boring.

    I'm actually PC user and wanted to jump ship, but PC laptops are looking more and more appealing as time goes by.

    Yeah, if I were just now considering switching from Windows to the Mac camp, I would have to think twice, too. It appears as if Sony and others are offering PCs with faster processors and better graphics than the MBPs have these days. Many of them are just as lightweight.

    Seven years ago the calculus was much easier. When I bought a 17 inch Powerbook G4, in 2003, both the size and resolution of its display represented the state of the art. Apple simply doesn't have that kind of an edge anymore.

    macbookpro 1,1

    The one with the terrible whine. But it's been all around the world and served me well.
