    i7, or even the arrandale i7? A better mid-ranged GPU too maybe.. Any rumours at all?

    There are always rumours and there are always upgrades coming. That's how the tech world works. Buy today and you are obsolete a year later. It doesn't matter if you buy now or later, it will be outdated soon.

    Anything solid, no. But if you go with the patterns, there will likely be a refresh in Q2 of 2010.

    You are correct - though we must admit the current specs of the macbook pro's are pretty out of date. You get C2D and 9600 GT - while other laptops are already on i7's (some even on desktop i7's clocking 3.33ghz) and up to 4870/280 SLI, with newer GPU's coming into January.

    Not that I expect a MCP to have the top of the line GPU as it isn't intended to be a gaming laptop, but would be nice for it to have either i7, or at least the arrandale i7 - it would be a huge leap - and I won't have to worry about another leap for at least 2 years (for the 22nm processor anyway ;)) Also, going to something even like an ATI 4670+ would be nice, from its current position.

    Yeah, they are lacking a bit in the processor department, but with the GPU you have to keep in mind heat and space limitations- those laptops with 280 SLIs aren't .75" thick. :)
