    Please update the MacBook Pro with the Penryn CPU and a taller LCD. No need for the onboard speakers to be as big either.

    MBP should be updated for sure, though it will be minor...won't get a non-16:10 LCD though.

    If you look at the inside, the speakers are really quite small, the two rectangles are for aesthetics mostly.

    I could love a better desktop without a screen and more powerful than a mini, but I really don't think they'll release one. My bets is on a sub-notebook.

    Not impressed. I like the new trackpad, and remote disc. However, I was hoping for at least a normal MacBook/MBP refresh

    iPhone 1.1.3 gets some features I'm surprised weren't already there (Maps updated...Home Page modifying....). Looks like a good update.

    Not a huge fan of iTunes Rentals...but I Netflix so that's probably why.

    Time Capsule I wish was out a few weeks ago when I was in the market for a new 802.11n router and a simple wireless network HDD. Definitely want that!

    About MBA...the initial novelty hasn't worn off, though I know I won't replace my MBP with it. Don't need thinner than this or much more battery or less power or HDD space. Maybe if it were priced well, though considering the form factor, that's not likely at all.

    Haven't heard much about the new AppleTV. If it can play my own H.264 .mp4/.mkv/.avi files then I might consider it....but if it's still an iTunes-exclusive, nah. No, I don't really want to hack it.

    BTW, iTunes 7.6, QT 7.4 and a new Front Row update are already available via Software Update.

    I do want to watch the keynote when it's available later...want to see Jobs sell the Air.

    MBA has all-new processors in it...1.6/1.8GHz C2D 4MB on a new package that's 60% smaller.

    Thought it was kind of cool

    The time capslue is perfect, I need a new router and was considiring an AirPort Extreme. If I didn't already have one of the original 17'' MBPs I would get an Air but I can justify $1800 for another laptop.
