A professional MacBook Pro user is no different than a Nikon or Canon pro user. It simply means that we need this gear to make money. It doesn't make me BETTER or my needs stronger. It simply means that my gear is connected to my income. Because of this I'm VERY careful about what I purchase. It's not a hobby for me. It's not for games and web surfing as a primary use. As a working photographer, I find that the tMBP is the best laptop to date. The superior screen, precise keyboard and beautiful design all fit my needs as well as suiting an image required for client contact. As a working screenwriter, much of the same applies. No aspect of the new design has a negative effect on my workflow. So...to all you professional owners of these new machines....let's hear about your actual workflow (good AND bad)! R.
