Apple Ars has reviewed the new MacBook Pro. "The latest MacBook Pros are a solid upgrade from their predecessor, thanks to the new Santa Rosa platform. If you already have a 17" MacBook Pro and aren't dying for the higher-resolution display, don't bother upgrading. If, however, you have been sitting on the fence with an old G4 or Core Duo laptop, this is a worthy upgrade. If you like your laptops large and in charge, I strongly recommend the 17" MacBook Pro."

thanks for the reply; but I'm a typical technology nut; going for the highend product (17" is too big).

I'm not going to use it for video editing regularly, but maybe here and there; but I wonder if 256MB video memory is going to the minimum for video editing 2 years down the road; since I'm planning on keeping it for about 4 years.

Ideally? You would have more than that. In my opinion, especially given the acceleration technology that Leopard will have, the more video memory, the better.

Agreed, I think what we need is a Dell XPS laptop running OS X to be the ideal laptop really in terms of shear graphics horsepower. That thing is a beast.
