That new Thunderbolt chip is going to be huge though. I can see a new market for external graphics being as large as the laptop bricks themselves.
I do not know what the chance of thunderbolt(light peak), being utilized as a GPU input is....

However It would be great if even something decent could be created. I would definitely buy an external GPU for my 13" MBP.

Never had a fundamental problem with a windows machine that I would not have encountered with an OSX box. This lousy build construction makes it worse to even consider a mac. My friend's mac has experienced problems that were unheard of on any machine I've ever dealt with. Low quality parts + shoddy build construction is just garbage. Apple should really pick up their game as the only difference between them and the low end market is just an OS. I'm not paying over $500 dollars more for an OS that restricts me to begin with.

They mostly share the same parts, including gearboxes and engines, yet you pay a price premium for owning an Audi.

I personally would be happy to pay that price premium as I have the disposable income and I really enjoy the looks and design of Macs.
My saying is not "You get what you pay for." It's "You rarely get more than what you pay for, but plenty of companies will charge you more for less."

In this case and most other cases involving Apple purchases over the last decade any extra cost has very tangible benefits to the interested party.

i had this problem on my macbook and was told i was improperly shutting my macbook and it was in no way related to the two corresponding pieces of plastic on the lid of the macbook. i was also told this wasn't a design flaw.

guess what the new macbook doesn't have....

i also still have the burn marks on my legs from the bottom of that thing. it is a great feature for the winter though.

I don't see the low quality parts or shoddy build on their recent stuff (or in a lot of the past stuff).

There will always be someone out there trying to get dirt on Apple. This is probably a isolated incident and we have people here blowing it way out of proportion.

In reply to an early post about alternatives. I kind of love my HP Envy 14, too bad they ran out of 1600x900 displays (for other people). My girlfriend has a 13.3" MBP and really, despite clearly being "inspired" by the MBP it really does offer so much more for so much less. I wonder if HP is going to do an SB refresh to compete with this?

My sister's touchpad on her Macbook Pro stopped working.

Why? Apple technician sez:

"Thur's a grain of rice in there. I've opened the machine and instead of not charging you for it, since it's such a tiny fix, it'll cost you $200 extra for me to get it out."

Sister sees $50 Bluetooth touchpad, goes "NVM" at the technician.

Cool Story Bro.
