Like I said back when this was said: "This just means a bigger standard HD people."
lol people get so overexcited sometimes and want to believe this means more than it sounds.
I predicted these EXACT specs earlier this month on the 8th.

So far my apple predictions this year for the most part have all been coming true!
I love this, only $100 off!
I can't wait for my 3 macbook prediction+specs to come true now!
But that was the obvious part, except for the price.
You just had to look at the specs of the various incarnations of the 15"PB compared to the 17" PB and extrapolate the specs of the 15" MBP the same way.
- biggest BTO HD
- largest GPU
- processor 1 step ahead.
I would have been surprised if you would have predicted the following specs also:
- 1 x FW800 and 1x FW 400
- 3 x USB2
- 8x double-layer SuperDrive
- 1 inch thickness
And sticked to it during the heavy debat that would have followed @FH
That would have been really cool.
The pricetag was pretty good though.
Much lower and more accurate than I expected.
Due to the fact that the 15"MBP 2,16Ghz has a $2,799 pricetag I expected the 17"MBP to be at least $2,999 maybe $3,099.
