Yes I WILL CALM DOWN SOON.
BruceP where are you we need your sage (though borderline incomprehensible) take on things!
i laff hard on that one i am playing borderlands for 4 days now
apple now has a system humming along quite fast right now
an incredible apple design team that morphes each new future type tech>>like thunderbolt into each new item for sale
so ball these new fangled wild stuff will be moved to all the other magical apple stuff
on and on so no one can ever catch apple
wow and my verizon I-PHONE
it does fucking everything
the flashlight app is so bright .
any way i regret waiting so long .
i reccomend everybody buy the ipod touch and the iphone and put different media on each one , so if one battery goes out you have a great back up
as for the new apple MP line up well they have a weak i/2 from all the 13 inchers to the bottom of 15in ones
these lack of decent graphic cards made me buy the 2 chip 3.02ghz 15 in 2yrs ago
and i will buy again the top-o-line 15right now . and sell the old one
but apple really has to get some real graphic crads on all machines and stop hoping for a cloud rescuse .
aapl will be $ 600 in 18 months and still be cheap
the world only now is finding out how cool apple can be
i hope i did nvida right here ,
my real name is lostplay

I'm actually pretty hard to impress, but I have to say "Well done, Apple."
I'm interested enough to take an external to the store and see how it performs vs my current (2010) MBP 17. It may well end up that yet another family member gets a surprise gift this year.

Because Blu-Ray sucks, for both content authors and system integrators due to the licensing. But let's not get back into the HD-DVD vs Blu-Ray argument. Do you really think they keep Blu-Ray out of the Mac to protect their iTunes revenue stream? Please. Blu-ray sales do not compare well to standard definition DVDs, the players are klunky and slow, and Apple's iTunes HD videos not only look excellent (even though they are at 720P), but they're $10 cheaper than a typical Blu-Ray disk. I never want to buy a darn DVD again.
It's your choice, but I personally feel the Vaio (I use one at work) is a poor shadow of even my 2-year-old MBP.

The only thing is that a 256GB SSD is a 500€ option, a bit much if you ask me. Will probably get a 7200 RPM Harddrive and upgrade to an SSD when they become a bit more affordable.
apple of course for all my bitching has again hit super home runs with this fast new line up of MBP
AND MBA will merge soon enough
