When are you upgrading?
Waiting for Nehalem. Still using a 2.16 CD MBP so the jump will be a large one. Plus the fact I need that much time to save up for it.
2nd or 3rd generation Nehalem
Nehalem Macbook Pro. I've currently got a Vista gaming PC that it will be replacing. Come January I'll be upgrading my G4 to the Nehalem Mac Pro too whenever that rolls around.
I may do that as well if this MBP is chugging along well.
Waiting for a new Montevina with new Nvida FIXED! GPU's then will grab on the Nehalem at 4th or 5th generation when the probs have been ironed out
There's no option for both. I'll be using my mom's 15" Montevina until Nehalem comes out, whereby I'll be getting a 17".
Since I just got this MBP a few months ago, I'll wait for Nehalem, since I doubt there will be a significant performance difference in Montevina.
I am patiently awaiting my montevina macbook.
How old are you?
18 & college bound
I feel like a fossil!
i'm going to buy the next MB if there is a good case redesign that i like.
Waiting for Nehalem is kind of pointless because it's just a 25% performance jump. But at the time Nehalem is out there is the Quadcore jump on the horizon with a much higher performance jump. At the time Nehalem is out I would then just feel I have to wait for the quadcore. So I buy now and upgrade in 1-2 years again. The plan is to replace my two G4 machines with two intel machines this way.
I'm waiting for Nehalem. My PMG5 is getting a bit long in the tooth now and my RevA MB has had nothing but niggling problems.
By the time Nehalem comes around I should be able to afford it.
16 core MacPro. Oeuf!
I vote second or third gen montevina or 2nd gen nahalem. I'm not a fan of either first gen since they tend to have more problems (in my opinion).
I will have another poll next year when it's close to nehalem.
Going for whatever comes out in 3 years... getting a MBP as a graduation gift to myself before my student discounts wear off
Also just got an older gen MBP for a really nice price, so I am pretty happy.
montevia or nahalem doesnt matter, I want an updated design.
rev. b of nehalem.
amen brother - i'm happy with my penryn til then.
I'm going to continue using my Core Duo MacBook Pro until it not longer does what I want it to do.
Early reports beggining to trickle out confirm your suspicions. Beside it's a paper launch and laptops won't be available for a month or two. Not exactly a stellar performance by Intel. This is what happens when Intel isn't feeling any heat from AMD, which announced a $1 billon loss today and the exit of that uber loser, Hector Ruiz, as ceo. What a clown.
montevina as long as the GPU is upgraded. If not, I might be forced to leave Apple for a while.
I'll be getting Montevina when it comes out as long as it has a decent GPU. Otherwise I'll probably grab a refurbished Penryn base model after they go down in price from Montevina being out.
