MacBook Pros shipping with faster processors

This morning I was pumped to read that the MacBook Pro is shipping with faster processors. Of course, since there's a 2.16 GHz version available, I called today to upgrade. It's $300 more and it would delay my order by 3-4 weeks. I had to pass - I've been waiting long enough for a faster laptop. I'd gladly pay twice as much for an upgrade if it was shipped on the same date.

I think the best thing for the end user would be if Apple decided to go head to head against MS on the Intel platform and just let users buy the OS alone. I don't think the prices of their hardware is worth that much even if it is of excellent quality. Then again it's Apple's choice to make and I can understand why they might not do it.

I am guessing you hear about this possible tip? You might be able to get your order to ship even sooner if you opt for the 7200 RBM hard drive. I have the 7200 hard drive in my PB G4 and I actually think it has made a noticable impact on performance. Then again with the new MacBooks having a much faster bus speed, maybe it won't make that much difference.

In delayed 4 weeks Apple will release faster memory. In next 4 weeks they will release faster HDD. Ad infinitum. So You will never get your fast laptop :-)

I was dissapointed to find that they bumped my shipping date by another 8 days when they upgraded. Hope you're enjoying San Francisco!

Sheeeiiiit - they did that to mine too Todd. Estimated ship: Feb 28, 2006, Estimated delivery: Mar 7, 2006. I guess I might as well upgrade.

28th Of Feb - mine too, and then an additional 2 weeks for good measure.

Youch. After the upgrade to 2.16 GHz, here's my new dates: ship by Mar 17, 2006, arrive by Mar 24, 2006.

Question for all of you. Will you have all of the necessary development tools for the new MacBooks? Like a compatible JVM and Eclipse (with universal binaries)? Any target dates for these? thanks

Posted by Hugh lang on February 20, 2006 at 09:11 AM MST #

Hugh - yes, the JVM will work and Eclipse 3.2 M5 supports Mac on x86.
