Hey all,

I'm pondering a MBP 13 purchase. I understand that the Core 2 P7550 processor was retained while the GPU and memory received upgrades.


What I would like to know is, can we expect a processor refresh to take place in fall of 2010, sometime before late August when school starts? I understand that there were some engineering obstacles that may have prevented Apple from installing mobile i3 processors into the MBP 13? Is there any chance we might see the P7550 processor get replaced?

LOL ... They only just released the new MBPs so you are definitely jumping the gun here!
All that anyone can do is speculate, but if they were to release a new line of MBPs any time this year, it wouldn't be until the end of the year!

Well, can ya blame me? I haven't ever seen a computer manufacturer use the same processor from the previous generation for a "refresh."

Buy one when you need one... period.

If you need it now, buy it now.

If you don't need one until August, then don't buy it until August.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.

Don't get greedy. They just released new MBPs, you're going to be sitting on your heels for a while if you really want to wait for the next release. Like bobtomay said, if you need a computer now, get it now. If you kept waiting for the next Apple release, you'd never end up with a computer. It's a simple fact that they will continue making new stuff that you may want. However, that by no means means that the previous generation is now "bad." Apple makes great computers, and any one of them in any iteration will serve you well.

Just a stupid kid with a computer, so take my advice with a grain of salt if that makes a difference to you.
