1. Of course, I would get some serious heat from my brothers at The Federation of Mac Blog Workers Local 114 if I did not mention the New Macbook Pros, now with the power of Thunderbolt, which you and I both know is simply a paid product tie-in for the upcoming Thor movie (kidding). 
Put simply, these things are beasts. Intel i5 and i7 processors, faster graphics, Facetime HD camera, long battery life, and… Wait! Is that a 5400 RPM hard drive? I’m with Shawn Blanc here. Anyone who has used or upgraded to an SSD can tell you that no other performance enhancement enhances more than a solid state drive. Apple missed an opportunity here in my opinion. 
Don’t get me wrong, these are very nice and powerful machines. More so than most need. But if you are among the crowd that do, consider dropping the coin for the SSD option. You will be glad you did.
