I think keeping the entry-line models at the same price would be fair, but I think they should reduce the higher end 15" price, as well as the 17". The 1.67 GHz 15" is 300 dollars more than the other 15", and for two fairly small feature points.

That sort of spiteful attitude is the kind of thing that causes the bull**** "Apple vs. Microsoft" hatred. The fact that someone else GAINS is no LOSS to you.

Yeah, definitely. I think the best move would be to go ahead and use the 7448 and only upgrade it to 1.7 GHz, as the rumor is stating. The real benefit here is less power consumption and overheating for relatively similar speeds. With the DDR2 RAM in place, the processor speed bump itself will be insignificant anyway.

'cause when it rains, you know it pours.
