Why is his chin so super shinny? >_<" It was kind of distracting. His advice on waiting is good. However his comparison of the MB vs the low end 13" MBP is not very accurate.

Didn't address the fact that the Pro versions have backlit keyboard, sd card slot, and firewire.

Noticed that too. It was SUPER distracting, and really bothered me.

Good advice though, yes.

Sounds like good advice - the shiny chin didn't bother me, but the voice and the occasional bursts of 200 words a minute speech did. But, hey, the guy's doing everyone a favour and he doesn't have to!

i was about to splurge on a macbook pro now, but willing to wait, where i can either get a faster i5/i7 macbook pro or one of the existing range a lot cheaper...

He has a very good point. I hope the price will stay close to the same as the MBP now.

His chin and crooked picture frame are distracting. haha I don't think he blinked the whole video.
