Two MacBook Pro Features Worth Waiting For

November 28, 2010 Leave a comment

I’m keeping my 2008 MacBook Pro until Apple releases one with two features that I’ve decided are essential if I’m to upgrade [writer crosses arms and points chin upward and off to the side in a defiant stance].

SSD internal storage. I’ve gone through two hard drives on my current MacBook Pro because I toss the thing around like it’s notebook, as in a paper notebook.  Ya know, the ones that won’t break when you drop them onto the floor?  I don’t actually drop my MBPro, but when I’m done using it, I close the lid, grab it, and drop it into my laptop bag.  I don’t have time to wait for the drive to completely spin down and get its shit together.  I’m ready to go when it’s time to go.  After losing two drives, probably because of this habit, I’ve been forced to give it a few seconds before I yank it into the bag, or at least be extra careful while that drive is still spinning.  I’m ready for a solid state drive, not only for the quick startup and performance enhancement, but also because of the reliability.  Mechanical hard drives are leftovers from the industrial revolution.  Let’s move on.

Retina display. I’m still enjoying my iPhone 3Gs, but when I look at the screen on the new iPhone 4, I fell like I’m looking into the future of the MacBook line.  I don’t know how long it will take for this technology to become affordable enough to include on the MacBook Pro, but I’m ready now. Oh, and speaking of affordable…

I’m gonna go all dreamy now and say that I want all of this for $1600. I wonder how long I’ll be waiting?

Thank You, T-Mobile!

Looks like T-Mobile in the Netherlands spilled the beans on the specs for the iPhone.  Found this on Wired’s Gadget Lab, and it’s already been pulled from the T-Mobile site.  Here is the graphic that has now been edited to remove specific chip speed and RAM:
