"Great notebook, but no real change in this "new" MBP's"3.0 starson by CrunchDude
Pros: Best battery life in the industry; Core i5/i7 (dual-core only, though) upgrades, nice LED-backlit screen, Mac OS X 10.6.3; runs Windows 7 as well
Cons: No USB 3.0, No eSATA, no CPU upgrade for the 13" MBP's, only two USB 2.0 and ill-placed at that; no improvement of the LCD (no IPS/no RGB LED); weak graphics with a max of only 512MB dedicated VRAM; NO option for higher-spec'd Core i7's
Summary: Core i5/i7 at long last but NO option for a quad-core, and NO option for a Core i7 Extreme edition; it should be up to the user, not Apple, if battery life or an Extreme Edition Core i7 is what we want. Same everything as the Unibody Mac's from TEN months ago. Lame.
CNET/potential buyers: The Core i7 that is in the highest-end 15" and highest-end 17" MBP is *not* Quad-core as your specs would have users believe. It is the Core i7-620M, a 2.66GHz DUAL-core i7
