As u can see I have a 17" mbp and had it for a few months but after the nvidia announcement, Im seriously thinking about selling the mbp and using the which will cover for a 2.8ghz 8 core mp. One of my fears is that the gpu will die over the years on the mbp and when apple care runs out or even if the mbp is covered by ac knowing that one day I would need to get it serviced.. I know I had the mp before and know what to expect and while the 17" mbp is a desktop replacement it is portable. Damn nvidia! Sorry this is more of a venting thread than anything else. Also curious anyone else on the same boat as I am with selling their mbp fora mac pro?
