Since Apple releases updates to their products on an 8-10 month cycle I am putting off getting a MacBookPro (that and the “accounting department” has not approved the purchase.)  I’m happy that I waited because it seems the next release of the MacBookPro will have the new LED technology.

For end users, the new technology translates into improved notebook battery life and displays that will maintain their initial levels of brightness longer into their respective life-cycles. Come this spring, LED-lit displays will also deliver a more vivid canvas for the various software user interface enhancements and animation techniques that will be included with Mac OS X Leopard.

So, you get the new OS 10.5 (aka Leopard) and a new screen that consumes less power.  Yeah!
