OK, i've decided that im getting a 15" MBP (the high-end version w/ a 100GB 7200RPM HDD). is there anything i should know or look for? for example how can i tell if i have the "whine"? and what is a good case for it that is small but has room for the power supply? thanks

You can't tell if it has the "whine" until after you've used the Macbook Pro and listened for it.

I think it'll be announced at WWDC or around that time. As for why a lot of us are postulating a release near there, the new CPU to replace the Core Duo in the MBPs (codenamed Merom) is set to come out in August. :)

I heared that intel switched the merom release to end of july. (23rd as far as I know) this extra week maybe lets us see a MBP2 with merom around september, originally october was in the discussion. I would really appreciate it, as I start to hate my Bronze-Keyboard. Its nice to surf with it and use office, but the time has come to donate it to my girlfriend :D

Hi, i'm new here but hoping to get a MBP soon.

Just wanted to say thanks very much for the info -TiLT-. I hope it's true!! I'm dying to get one, but not spending that much money on a potential disaster! I hope the Merom will be everything I'm hoping for.

Fingers crossed. :)

I'm waiting for Merom - I think we'll see a lot of the bugs get worked out. B)

If Apple keeps up with their current rate of processor speed bumps and announcements, I think we'll see it in August or September.
