I'm pretty sure you cna get an internal blue-ray burner for the 17" from of course I think that in addition to a 1920x1200 screen brings the total cost up near 5k, which, uh, is a lot.
I have a dream that one day canon will release a 35mm ef to xl adapter and I'll have iris control and a 35mm dof of all my ef lenses, and it will be awesome...

I'd love a quadcore MacBook Pro.

I'd have to disagree there. My Dell Inspiron 5150 which is about 4 years old now has a 15" screen that's 1600x1200. Much the same as a 1920x1200 15.4" widescreen. It's a very high quality screen, and to be honest the text is no more difficult to read than any book or newspaper. But having that extra resolution really makes a difference for video, audio editing or graphics releated programs.

and if u are buying the 15" model, do you really want to pay extra $420+ to get 128 meg additional VRAM? All macbook pro should come stock with 256 VRAM.

Quad-Core Laptop would be nice but finding a place to put a 2nd CPU would force them to redesign the entire MBP system. I think they'll wait a little bit. While the new MBP's are nice, its not that much faster...not enough to feel bad if you own a previous gen. one. I think I read on macrumors forums that the speed difference is like 6% and maybe 10% in extreme cases.

HD DVD vs. Blue Ray

Is Blue Ray going to out do HD DVD? I have not been keeping up.
I know with cassettes 8 tracks went out and were obsolete real quick.

If I were 2 invest in a $600 Blue Ray DVD burner to go with my MacBook Pro 17 in, would that be the same mistake as buying an 8 track player back when they came out?

By the way that would be SWEET if they had a blue ray burner in the MacBook Pro!!!!
