    I like the new designs and there are some nice improvements like the NVIDIA.

    Mine is still in top shape so I don't see the point in upgrading now, but those sure look tempting lol.
    This is just like that drug trip I saw in that movie while I was on that drug trip.

    I like the new design but I think Apple shouldn't have made the MB and MB Pro so homogeneous. People's perceived value of the MB Pro will be lower now that it has virtually the same design as a $1200 MB. The average user doesn't need the extra power of the MB Pro but in the past some were willing to pay the higher price for the better, more luxurious design. IMO sales of the MB Pro will go down and sales of the MB will go up, but maybe that's the plan with the economy and everything. But hey what do I know, I'm not the one making billions every year.

    Also, I'm pissed about the lack of a matte display.

    one thing i especially don't like is the lack of firewire in the new macbooks. i'd use it for mobile video editing and you can't hook up a cam now. also my ipod is firewire.

    No room on the pcb for the port/chipset.

    Yup, they do sell films to minimize the reflections.

    I ran across this image:



    The new macbook.

    They could have squeezed firewire in there if they really wanted to but the problem was probably the location of the firewire input itself.

    But not having the option of a matte screen is a huge minus in my opinion.
