    they look pretty sweet. I've never heard of thunderbolt before though. I wonder what the ipad 2 will look like.

    I want a mac mini pro model. Like a macbook pro without the integrated peripherals.

    What's been updated? I looked at the link a month ago and it looks the same to me.

    Well they're great machines if you don't have to deal with the still unresolved and by Apple ignored screen blink problem (MBP model 2008, not sure if it's present in newer models). Otherwise well worth the money if you can afford it.

    My cousin just bought the old model macbook pro. He would have waited if he knew that the model was changing. Daang.

    BTW, don't buy an iPad or iPhone right now either. New versions are on their way.

    Definitely not going to get an iPhone this time round. The next iPad will need to ooh me, before I even commit to clicking on the Buy Now link.

    new iPad should be first, followed by iPhone in late June early July IIRC.

    It's not really a big surprise that not many folks went for the iPhone 4 on Verizon, not with the iPhone 5 being so close. :)

    The new MacBook Pro lineup looks very impressive, in addition to the much improved cpu and the new IO system being twice as fast as USB 3 is awesome, though getting peripherals that use it might be tricky. ;)

    Can you carry that hardcore gaming rig like a large clipboard?[​IMG]

    I agree that the top of the line is overly expensive, but that's always the case. There's always a premium on the top of the line, you always get a much better bang for your buck by going down a couple rungs on the product ladder. We homeschool too, so we always get 10% off Mac products anyway, but they are still expensive. The build quality is superb though.

    I have no need for such thing's :D but I see you'er point but I would still by a cheap 200 gpb one if I ever needed one :)

    Not everyone wants a hardcore gaming pc... MBPs are just very nice laptops which are really a pleasure to work on, for that reason people buy them.
