Apple The 17" MacBook Pro has just been released. The 17" model has Firewire 800 and 8x dual layer Superdrive, both of which the 15.4" version lacks. The new MacBook Pro was presented during the NAB2006. The machine will cost $2799,- in the US, or round and about EUR 2879,- (differs per country) in the EU, or GBP 1999,- if you live in the UK.

That's what you want. ;)

A 13.3" widescreen might be fine for the general consumer, but I need a portable A/V editing machine. To be even remotely productive, 17" is a minimum.

A two-button trackpad isn't necessary. Right-click is a convenience for switchers. Besides, key+click combos take care of that.

A better video card? I suppose. I happen to prefer ATI, though. As for more disk space, I don't think that's quite necessary. DVD+/-RW's, thumb drives and external hard disc drives provide ample storage and solutions.

Under $1600? Don't we all wish. Is it plausible? Not built like this.

It does sound like you're in the market for a revised iBook/MacBook. The MacBook Pro really is a professional portable workstation, not a consumer portable.
