    I've been doing just about the same thing but I think I'll need a imac with the video power which means I'll have to ditch this 24" widescreen I have now. :(

    I bet Apple announces the addition of the hardware encoding/decoding chip for H.264 for all their products with this...

    My dad's looking at the 17" MBP, this would probably seal the deal :o

    still going on...
    if you don't work in media/video, then so far, nothing will appeal to you.
    since I work in media/video, the new FCP thing sounds interesting, and they just started talking about Motion 3, and since I work in Motion basically everyday at work, I'm all ears...

    ProRes 422: some media codec to make working in HD easier (HD resolution with SD file size, you can work on 4k HD files on a macbook pro)
    [​IMG]

    FCP: better HD workflow, easiler timeline management, Motion templates in FCP without having to open Motion, watch timeline without having to render the "unrendered" parts
    [​IMG]

    Motion 3: new bahaviors, 3d work flow, retiming/move matching....
