Does this mean a Macbook pro update is nearing now? Why buy a 2.4GhZ MacBook "Pro" with 200GB HD, when the iMac has this beat by 400Mhz, and 100+ GB storage, 1 extra GB of RAM capability... the list goes on and on. They should call this thing "iMac Pro".
The 24in iMac is a GREAT deal. I was just about to buy the 17in. Macbook Pro, now I am not so certain.
1. The 2.8 Ghz chip is not a laptop chip. 2.4 is the best intel chip in any laptop
2. They just updated the MBP two months ago
3. It's a desktop versus a laptop. The laptop is always going to lag in terms of HD space (although I do think they were a little chincy with this revision in that regard).
