    What do you think?

    To me it suspiciously looks like an ASUS and ACER laptop.

    quite dissappointed with the specs though. after such a long time the only things that is upgraded is the graphic card. but price is better now. hope there is some promotion this weekend on the macbook. free apple care would seal the deal.

    just the new graphic card and an easier option for upgrading HDDs is enough for me. damn my 12" managed to survive until now.

    You do use a lot of aluminum.

    The new MacBok is a bargain! Was just watching the keynote. Too many new toys to entice limited means and cash

    The look of the new machines reminds me so much of the electronics of the 1970s, cheap and flashy. Of course, the iMac and the new 24 inch display shares the look.

    One thing that truly bothers me is the lack of a matte display option on the MacBook Pro.

    No FireWire 400, on both the MB and MBP. Something important to note for those currently using FW 400 drives...I'm one of them, so I'm sticking to my aluminium I guess.

    i got my old version of macbook pro for 600 bucks less original price plus free upgrade to 4gb ram.

    if you ask me, that's a real bargain and its powerful enough for any photog work already...

    The new 1 looks just as thick as the old 1.
    Why can't they make it thinner?

    My understanding is that the MBP includes a FireWire 800 -> FireWire 400 adapter.

    I just tried it. The unibody design is really very solid. The new trackpad is actually very usable and functional. In fact, it is very nice to use.
