New MacBook and MacBook Pro

It is Tuesday again. This time Apple announced some very nice updates to the MacBook and the MacBook Pro. They include processor and hard drive bumps. Likewise, the MacBookPro 17″ is now getting an LED display and the MacBook Pro line is getting the MacBook Air gestures on the track pad. You can see the product details here.

I know several people who have been waiting for this update (including my friend Victor from the Typical Mac User podcast) and I expect we’ll be seeing reviews of the new hardware in no time at all.

I’m still quite satisfied with my slightly aged MacBook Pro. If any readers are buying one of the new machines, chime in on the comments.

    Well, while I am very pleased with my Santa Rosa MBP, I definitely want to upgrade every time a new one comes out.

    This one looks like a minimal upgrade, but still one that would be good for people that are on a Powerbook or 1st gen MBP. I’m personally waiting until they release a better video card, a stock 320GB (or higher) HDD, and a higher res on the 15″ model.

    The next significant bump will likely come when there is an option to add a Bluray drive. This will require a significant boost in the video card capability and likely RAM in the 3-4 range. Next jump will also be required for improved support of dictation and voice commands. If you have a laptop that is doing the job now – I would wait, until the next leap happens. Best guess on this likely late 2009 or 2010.
