Yeah, good thing I just bought a new MBP 2 weeks ago.
Apple MacBook Pro 15.4''

@cmercando - ow. that happened to me a few years back. they should give you a % refund or something.
Seems like an incremental upgrade to me. Even though Thunderbolt sounds awesome, I don't know of many devices that support it, so you'll probably not miss much by skipping this MacBook Pro.
seems like every new macbook just changes its ports so you have to buy all new adapters.
Incredible design, out of the box usage with little to no setup time. It's Apple and it's what they do. Multi-touch trackpad will increase your productivity as you're not hovering with a mouse to perform common actions.
Cons: Wish they would just increase that dedicated video to 1GB already. Not a deal breaker though.
LOVE! Stable & intuitive. Have run modeling programs on the vmware for Windows-works well. Perfect screen size for working at for hrs. Apple replaced battery with low charge (after yrs of use)
Cons: Expensive (but worth it for the time NOT spent troubleshooting bugs/fixes like with PCs)
User experience and a seamless hardware-software marriage. Great form, with attractive industrial and mechanical design. Appropriate selection of ports and peripheral compatibility. Battery life.
Cons: Comparatively expensive to many non-Apple laptops. Surcharge for anti-glare display.
Runs OS X, great construction, very sturdy, back-lit keyboard, lovely screen, light weight, powerful, you can get a matte display IF you want, great battery life
Cons: sharp edges that can hurt your wrists (depending how you type), need an adapter/cable to hook up firewire 400 drives to firewire 800 port
It's beautiful, powerful, and is quite capable of supporting whatever you want to do with a computer. It's easily fast enough to run pretty much whatever you throw at it.
Cons: I don't think it's worth the price bump over the non-pro MacBook. Also, glossy screen. ARG.
Superior laptop with an incredible design, and my main machine these days. Beautiful display but see cons. Glass multi-touch trackpad and new-type keyboard are great once you get used to them.
Cons: Display is available in glossy only and the reflections are distracting especially outdoors. USB ports are physically close together some some cables cannot be plugged in simultaneously.
The size of this unit will suit most people's needs perfectly. Great construction and materials used throughout the product.
Cons: The glossy display produces vibrant colors but has been a sticking point for some users.
Additional adapters are needed to make this product work with non Apple external displays.
Great power and features, can easily be a desktop replacement for all but the most demanding users. Great connectivity options, stability, runs Mac OS X.
Cons: Can be expensive for someone with simple needs (try the MacBook), shiny glass display is a let-down for some people.
