    im dying to buy a new laptop

    anyone have any news on when these things will be released? or if the specs are even worth waiting for?

    It's kinda at the end of it's update cycle. 240 days since it's been updated (normal cycle is 200 days for it). I'd wait for sure unless there's a big reason you need the additional specs the current model offers over whatever you're using now. Then again, it may mean waiting til WWDC in June.

    I can't see there being a big update. If anything just a processor bump up. I was looking into this because I'm looking at getting a MBP15 really soon. I'm not too worried about Apple reinventing the MacBook Pro in June.

    im hoping they will use core i5 or core i7 or something
    instead of just faster c2d processors

    Change in processor is fairly likely. I think I'd wait for that.

    Ugh, I wish they would hurry up and release the new update. Got my refund and i'm ready to buy a new laptop. I'm still working on my my g4 powerbook and it's just gotten incredibly sluggish now. Really need to upgrade.
