    Yea, I think I would like to put my 2 cents in.

    I am very impressed with the snow leopard only being $29 for leopard users and being launched in september, and the iphone os 3.0 being released next week. I am very excited for both those.


    But for the iPhone. I was looking forward this summer to the new iPhone with having a matte backing so no finger prints and being different.

    But no, its almost the exact same as the other iphone except with a few new features, and faster. I was really expecting a big updated to this one, and also the price drop in the current models are going to have people pissed off.

    Now for the macbook pros. I am really upset because I just bought a 15" MBP a month ago, and now they are $300 less, and you get a FREE ipod touch plus updated graphics, battery life, 2gb MORE ram.

    Also they renamed basically all their macbooks to macbook pros and just updated them a little bit. And they took out the express card slot. Which is kinda dumb on their part.

    Idk, but I am extremely mad about the new update to the macbook pros. There not even pros anymore there just macbooks.

    like seriously how can a 13" macbook be called pro? I think only the higher end 15" model and 17" model should be called pro.

    Matte plastic? Or Matte metal?

    You set your expectations way too high. There really isn't much at all that can be updated in the device without keep it's form factor and price.

    Your fault completely. You knew a huge Apple event was coming up. You didn't wait.

    Faster is big. Good camera is big.
    Why are you complaining? If it was a month ago, return it (30-day policy) and get a new one.

    So the name's different. Big deal.

    You would've been lucky if you would've gotten a MacBook cause the old plastic ones are damn ugly.

    when you think about it tho, this was always going to be the iPhone 2,1 not a brand new iphone but a small upgrade from the 3G (2,0) when we start getting leaks of 3,0... thats when we should get excited

    Regarding the MBP, it's your fault for not waiting for WWDC.
