New MacBook Pros

Apple recently unveiled a new line of MacBook Pros, absorbing the 13″ laptop model of the previous incarnation.  This means that the 13″ MacBook Pro has FireWire, an SD Card slot, and an improved display.  The laptop battery is also not (normally) user-replaceable: it costs $129 to replace it, about the same cost as a removable battery of the previous MacBook.

There still is a MacBook.  It is the white non-aluminum laptop with upgraded graphics (Nvidia 9400M).

As usual, I feel like upgrading but I am waiting for Snow Leopard and the next refresh of the MacBook Pros, given that Nvidia recently released new integrated graphics chip sets.  Let’s see how I fare resisting the temptation.
