The updates at WWDC to the MBPs and MBs were some of the worst ever. 1: Why are the MacBooks now called MacBook Pros? Since when does a "pro" laptop have such a crappy GPU. I have also never seen a "pro" laptop that only has a 13" display. They have merged an entire product line into one big category. Why? They probably did so because they thought it would be a good marketing strategy. This way they can advertise that you can buy a MacBook Pro for only $ 1,200. Now there is nothing to distinguish the "pro" users from the "non-pro" users. I don't know about you, but I feel sort of proud bearing the "pro" name. Now the "pro" name has been diminished into meaning nothing. I know a lot of people that have the unibody style MacBooks, but they are definitely not "pros" so why should the next gen of MacBook buyers be able to bear the "pro" name. I know that it's just a name and that most people won't even care, but consider this: the word "pro" is usually used to say that someone is above average. However, if apple is now making the majority of people a "pro", "pros" are now just average and not above average. So what are the above average pros going to be called now? While apple is making the "non-pro" users feel special by calling them pros, they are also making the actual pro users feel diminished. 2: Apple made a huge mistake when they replaced the Express Card slot with an SD card slot in the 15" MBP. This goes back to the "pro" user. Many pros needs the flexibility of an Express Card slot. The only people that use the Express Card slot aren't the people with 17" MBPs. With Apple's SD card slot you can only do one thing: read and write to SD cards. With an Express Card slot you can use it for an infinite number of things. For example, when USB 3.0 comes out I am going to get an Express Card that allows me to use the new USB version. You can't do that with a SD card reader. Also if apple REALLY wanted to put an SD card slot into a laptop in their pro lineup, they should have conducted a survey to find out who actually uses their Express Card slots. For all they know, maybe the people with 15" laptops use their express card the most and people with 17" laptops almost never use it. In that case, it would be logical to have the SD card slot in the 17" not the 15". They should have at least made an Express Card slot an option for the 15". BTW, for all I know, Apple could have conducted the survey mentioned about and concluded that 15" users don't use their express card, but I am guessing that they didn't. And finally, the new SD card slots don't support the new SDXC. They only support up to SDHC which means that they're limited to 32 GB. Now for the things I thought Apple did well... 1: The MBPs now have a nicer screen with a better color gamut. 2: The MBPs now have a longer batter life. Although it is not user replaceable or replaceable on the fly, it makes up for that fact in its extended power. However, I do think that Apple could easily include an option for buyers to choose either a non replaceable batter, or a replaceable battery. 3: The 15" and 17" MBPs are now a lot cheaper! Only $2,000 for 2.66 GHz! 4: Up to 8 gigs of ram is now supported in every MBP. However I do think they could add support for the 2.4GHz MBPs if they wanted to. Ok, that was my rant. I just needed to get it off my shoulders.
