    Man that integration is getting better and better, wow. So I see they did away with the 17in pro, I just got mine like a month ago. Cant return it for the upgraded one, should I just put an ssd on here? Can you upgrade the processor as well?

      You can definitely upgrade to an SSD, but there’s no real way to upgrade the processor. Now that they don’t have the 17-inch one you may be able to sell it for a lot of money to someone that really wants one.

    Ahhhh very true, think ill wait a bit. I don’t think I wanna sacrifice not having the DVD drive built in for a better screen res. This one is still damn amazing lol. You getting the new ones Gary?

      I’m a Mac Pro user. I’m waiting for a Thunderbolt version of that. I use a tiny MacBook Air as a complement, but the new one isn’t a big enough jump to make me want to get it.

    With regard to Mountain Lion, our family has three Macs and each one belongs to a different family member with their own Apple ID. Do we need to purchase three copies of Mountain Lion, or would it work to sign in with my ID on each Mac, download Mountain Lion and then sign back in to their ID?

    I don’t at all mind paying three lots of $20 to update each Mac, but wondered if like iTunes sharing, it is Apple’s intention for families to only have to buy one copy of Mountain Lion.

      Right. Each Apple ID would need to purchase it. Otherwise I’m not sure if updates would work. Maybe — but at $20 I would just stick to buying it for each one.

    Many thanks Gary.

    I have MobileMe and use iDisk. I’ve been holding off transfering my documents to DropBox to see if Apple came up with an alternative. It seems that Documents in the Cloud is that replacement. I’d be interested to know if that is your view and and also whether any iDisk capabilities are missing in Documents in the Cloud.

      They are not the same thing. Documents in the Cloud will give you a place to save/open files from specific apps: TextEdit, Pages, Numbers, and eventually third-party apps that adopt it.
      DropBox is a much more versatile solution, allowing you to put any files you want there. It is much more similar to iDisk.
      I’d just use both. Use iCloud for those specific apps. Use DropBox for everything else.
