It might be a long wait.

You think so? I can get a 100$ discount through the education store so I may go ahead.

PostPosted: Sat Feb 06, 2010 12:13 pm    Post subject: MacBook Pro 6,1 in the wild Reply with quote

A geekbench test has been posted for a MacBook Pro 6,1 with an Intel i7 processor, giving a mark of 5260. This compares to current models with ratings of 3700 to 4000 for a 2.66 gHz processor. The processor is listed as an Intel Core i7 M 620 running at 2.66GHz. The OS posted is a non-shipping build of Mac OS X 10.6.2 (Build 10C3067). This could indicate a refresh of the MacBook Pro line may not be too far off, possibly within a few months depending on how fast this new Intel processor inventory can ramp up. OS 10.6.3 is also been reported seeded to developers. Posted on MacRumors.com.

^ thanks for the info, definitely waiting now!

In the meantime, I'm trying to find a solution to "move out" of the mini so that I can officially sell it. TC would kill two birds with one stone because we're still using my ancient dell "g" router. hmmm

I went ahead and got it. I don't think I would notice the difference in the processors for what I do (listening to music, school, watching movies). I sold the iMac and picked up a G4 1.5 GHZ Mac Mini. It may not be as fast as the iMac but it will work just fine for what I need it to do.

So you picked up a 13" MBP and a G4 mini?

nice

I sure wish they would go ahead and update them, I'm itching to spend the cash I have saved for it. I'm probably going to pick up a Time Capsule while waiting. I'm still running an old Dell wireless-g router, wanting wireless-n before I get the MBP...
