Hey guys,

New to the forum and will be soon a new owner of a MBP 15". I hear alot of hype about in upcoming line. I need to buy a laptop by the end of Jan. and was thinking of getting the 2.8 core duo MBP 15". I am a heavy user of cad, photoshop, revit and 3dmax so i will possibly be using parallel desktop also due some programs needing windows. I need a pretty good performing laptop. I have a MacPro for home use but laptops have always been in the Windows line, HP and Toshiba Qosmio , my current one. Now is this the right choice or should i wait to see if the quad core comes out by the end of the month... is it a big difference compared to the 2.8ghz duo or should i just go ahead and buy the 2.8. I hear great reviews of the MBP but i just want your opinions since i will be spending alot of money. I hear good and bad reviews of Quad core's, whats your take? Thank you
QUOTE Thanks

If you need a macbook pro now, buy one now. The current macbook pro line is great it will perform fine for you.

My guess is as good as yours.

I would wait it if you can.

The quad cores will be very nice, but will probably come at a hefty price and may be only available for the 17 inch.. But no one knows for sure.
