Let me start by saying that I've been a dedicated PC fan for many years, but Vista finally has converted me to the Mac. In december I sold my PC laptop in hopes of an upcoming update but now that the update is here, I'm going to wait a bit longer and here's why: 1. When Santa Rosa was released back in '07, PC makers started shipping the new versions in May '07. So how long did it take for Apple's genious marketing team to jump on board? 1 month - new updates to the MPB in June '07. 2. Intel is set to release montevina, which they are branding "Centrino 2," June 3-7. But did you notice what happens the following week? WWDC!! Apple is brilliant when it comes to marketing. They couldn't schedule WWDC for the week intel releases the new chip b/c then they couldn't update the MBP. Apple isn't going to let PC makers in on the new Intel marketing of Centrino 2 but leave their computers on core 2. Apple is too much of a marketing genius to do that. 3. Montevina is going to have the integrated support for Blue-ray. Why would Apple have spent R&D money to get blue-ray today when they can have intel do the work for them in terms of hardware in June? 4. Apple pretty much had to release an update today for two reasons: A. Dell and other PC makers are going to be selling Penryn and thus Apple's marketing team couldn't let them be left in the dust and B. It had already been 9 months since the last real update. While it could take apple until August to get the Centrino 2, I'm going to predict June (based mainly on the fact that WWDC is the week after the Intel announcement). While the video updates, Hard drive, and processor today were ok updates, I think Centrino 2, Blue Ray, and perhaps a new case design (considering the smaller form factor), would make an even bigger splash in June. And for that reason, I'm going to wait. Thought's anyone?
