    Do you think the new MBP will have the new type of keyboard, the one that MB has?

    Or is it considered "none-pro"? I kind of liked the MBs keyboard.

    A Reasonable timeframe to expect an updated MacBook Pro is september-november.

    i'll be surprised if it will be earlier or in 2007.



    Small overview of Powerbook and MacBook Pro announcements and updates in recent history:



    Powerbook G3 (3500/ Kanga): nov. 1997

    Powerbook G3 (Wallstreet) : mar. 1998, updated aug. 1998

    Powerbook G3 (Lombard) : may 1999

    Powerbook G3 (Pismo) : feb. 2000, updated sep. 2000

    Powerbook G4 (titanium) : jan. 2001, updated oct. 2001, apr. 2002, nov. 2002

    Powerbook G4 12"/17" : jan. 2003, updated sep. 2003, jan. 2005, oct. 2005

    Powerbook G4 15" (aluminium) : sep. 2003, updated apr. 2004, jan. 2005, oct. 2005

    MacBook Pro 15" : jan. 2006, updated may 2006

    MacBook Pro 17" : apr. 2006



    As you can see a reasonable update cycle is 6-7 months.

    There are some exceptions like the introduction of the powerbook G3 pismo (9 months),

    the powerbook G4 titanium to aluminium transistion (10 months) from november 2002 to september 2003 and the last incarnations of the powerbook G4 which took an average 9 months to update.



    With the introduction of the Intel based MacBook Pro we can expect shorter update cycles though.
