I'm curious to where everyone stands.
I'm definitely here. I'd much rather have a bigger battery and at least the option for dual HDs than an optical drive I rarely use. Plus 45 W CPUs (cheaper and more powerful) would be good too.
I'm not voting since I won't be getting MBP anyway, but I think they'll keep it in Pro until they decide to ditch optical drives completely, or at least from all laptops.
Give it a bigger battery and making smaller and more rigid. The superdrive can be external. It could even be a nice brick about 2x the current external superdrive size and include: USB hub and a few ports, superdrive, ethernet all in one brick that wirelessly (WUSB?) connects back to the new MBP.
Definitely not. Internal drive is a must.
Curious, what do you do that makes having the internal drive essential?
I've had the same PB G4 for about 3.5 years and I have used the internal drive about a dozen times. It is a waste of space. If I want movies, music, etc. on my laptop I usually rip it on my desktop and then transfer. Hard drive space is so cheap and CD/DVDs are so slow that I can easily do without it. In fact, once there are updates I might just end up with an MBA, but I'll have to see what the new MBPs bring.
No way, my 15" Macbook Pro is my only computer, and I use it for my DVD-Player. I also boot-camp Windows XP and play games quite often. Not to mention, there really aren't enough USB slots on the system as it is..
