I held off purchasing a new laptop due to the new lineup being near. Now that it's here, I'm underwhelmed. I could still buy a previous generation 13" MB, load it up with 4G RAM and a 250G HD w/ 2.1 core duo and it's $1,347 or: Buy a new one, add to equal RAM and HD above, with a 2.0 core duo and it's $1,549 or: A 2.4 core duo, add the RAM and its $1,749; The big difference, looks aside, is the Nvidia graphics but how much of an impact is that really going to have? I'm not a gamer. I would use Adobe PS and Illustrator on occassion if I'm traveling on business and take some web site work along with me. Rarely essential. Down side, for me anyway may be the glass touch pad. I have the iTouch, I'm not proficient with the gestures and I'm not sure I want to be. No Firewire? Won't that make back ups significantly slower? Glossy vs. Matte....Not sure about this. I see a lot of objection to the glossy screen, but don't understand why? The pricing structure seems to be $200 for a feature, plus aluminum...and a backlit keyboard with the 2.4 MB. What to do, what to do?
