    I got the 15" 2.66Ghz MBP, June 09 I got it, and your post persuaded me not to upgrade it. I guess I'll keep it as Modern Warfare 2 runs pretty smooth on Windows 7 Bootcamp
    But then again the Core i5 processors look sweet but no Blu Ray drive, 2011 I guess it is

    The price increments seem a bit too high between models for what your getting really. I only got my 15" MBP in September so I'm good for another few years.
    I think Apple should drop the entry level 13" to $999 and do away with the plastic unibody macbook, they're just gonna upgrade the plastic macbooks to the GeForce 320m anywho.

    Also, I've had this question in my head about any computer manufacturer.....for example are the i5 CPU's in the 15" models actually different, or are they the same CPU, just over or under clocked? Whats stopping you from buying the 2.4Ghz i5 model, and overclocking it to 2.53Ghz?

    I bought the top of the line 15inch MacBook Pro 6 days ago!! So I took it back today and said I wanted to upgrade to the new 17 inch because it is now the same price and totally worth the $209 restocking fee. Greatest part about the whole thing is that they waved the fee and I got it for a straight trade!! They might be a little expensive but lets see you get that kind of customer service at best buy or one of those crap retailers!! Two thumbs up Apple....Stay Classy

    Any way of modding that inertia scrolling to the rest of us? Looks like a cool feature.. Apple did say it was not available via a Software Update, although they said the same thing about multi-touch on the older MBP's and someone hacked it, then Apple released it in Snow Leopard anyways so I'm sure it's possible. We just need someone with the new models to find their trackpad kernel (or whatever .kext files are lol) and pass it to someone else who can then install it on their older MBP. Just like when people hacked multi-touch (and by multi-touch, I mean more than 2 fingers)

    no. they come in different i5 models. there are like 5 different types for each iX processor

    I think that i'm going to breakdown and buy a 15in in 2.4 ghz. there goes my money.....

    Ordering the 15in 2.4ghz i5 now!!!!

    Macbook pros last a long time. No need to upgrade until something epic comes out.

    Or you could sell on ebay and eat $200 or so and buy the new one

    I just bought my 13" MBP on the 5th of this month, I think I'll take it back to Best Buy and exchange it for the newer model. Anyone see this being a problem?

    I feel your pain mate, I had the wife bring me one back from the US in November, to use in the lounge room.

    Upgrade my tired G5 to a nice new iMac 24" in July - I wish I had of waited. But then again you can never tell (that's what I keep on telling myself) at the end of the day they are great machines & will do what I want them to do.
