    It looks great. It has a Firewire 800 and 3 USB ports so that is an improvement from the G4.

    The only thing I heard about FCP is from JVC, from Press releases and the DP of 24 that say Final Cut Pro will handle the 720/24P HDC codec Nativly very soon.

    This is what is even better and will soon be a common complaint from 15" MacBook Pro owners:

    17" MacBook Pro 2.16ghz Core Duo w/ 1GB RAM, 100GB/7200rpm HD (Optional from the 120GB/5400 wihtout an extra charge), 8x DL Superdrive, 3 USB 2 ports, 1 Firewire 800 port, and 1 Firewire 400 port sells for $2599

    15" MacBook Pro 2.16ghz Core Duo (Built-To-Order) w/ 1GB RAM, 100GB/7200rpm (BTO cost of $90), the same ole' 4x DL Superdrive, 2 USB 2 ports, and 1 Firewire 400 port for $2659!

    No joke! The 15" costs more more than the 17" when you build-to-order it to match the 17-inch's specs, and the 17" STILL has: a largeer screen, and additional USB 2 port, and a Firewire 800 port.

    I think this partially should be expected. The chips are coming to Apple at a discounted rate they (apparently) didn't have before with the PowerPC chipsets. In any case, dropping the 15-inch's cost more than what they did would've been the right thing to do. When you factor in the educational discount, or those who work for companies that get a special rate from Apple, the 15" BTO is still too close to the 17" in cost.

    Sorry. I was using my EDU discount in the pricing. Thanks for pointing that out. This just proves my point even more.

    The 17" is $2799 and the 15" is $2899 with the same configs, minus the 8X DL Superdrive and FW800. So it's not $60 more. It's $100 more.

    yep, checked it out, the 17" with FW800 and 8x DL superdrive is CHEAPER than the 15" without those features
