While all the other Mac worshipers dance in the streets and shout their hosannas at Apple's leisurly introduction of its Core 2 Duo-packing MacBook Pros, the rest of us surly chip watchers sit in the dark and dank back rooms wondering wtf Apple has been doing, taking two months just to swap out a processor.
