9to5mac claims they've been sitting on this list for several weeks but didn't want to out the inventory people as a source of the leak so they didn't post it til now.

AU$2,499 and 3,149 are pretty freaking expensive prices for a MBP according to the list from 9to5.



Edit: Sorry for reposting this 9to5 list again. I didn't realize it was posted on the previous page

"Ultimate" means "last". This should re-boot the "Mac Pro is dead" rumors!

And all the other models are "better" or "best". Where are the "good" models? Or does "better" just mean it's better than a PC?

That also makes sense. We can only wait and see. These better be Mac Pros, if only for the relief it will bring from the incessant "Apple does not care about the pros!!" posts.

Well all are meaningless marketing words anyway. Ultimate and Best for example are definitive terms, not comparative, and mean exactly the same thing.

Of course, but speculating is more fun than work.

3149 Australian dollars = 2 005.44362 British pounds

The 2011 17" MBP currently starts at 2099 British pounds. Don't forget the rest of the world gets shafted on the prices in comparison to the US.

They won't. This list, if true, just adds to the idea that they won't be keynoting hardware. It's 90 minutes. The bulk of that will have to be iOS 6 which they have to preview to set up every iOS panel for the rest of the week. otherwise what's the point of having those panels. Then there's any remaining Mountain Lion features to disclose, also vital to the whole conference. Those two are easily 60 of the 90 minutes if not more. 30 minutes to talk about that whole list in any kind of detail. Not even Steve could pull that off. Any mentions of hardware will be quick and cursory. They will talk in broad strokes focusing on details that will directly effect the software and require changes in existing apps etc. Oh speaking of apps, if they have anything new on that front to discuss like say a new version of iWork for that native iCloud document syncing everyone is screaming about being vital, that's even less time for hardware.

If those all come out at WWDC that will be unprecedented! Really looking forward to next week. Maybe they have all received redesigns?

So this is when Tim Cook doubles down on product secrecy Alas, I couldn't justify a $3000 single socket computer as an upgrade path from the 2008 dual socket model Mac Pro. I may as well switch to a notebook, or see what the iMacs will be like. Anyway, good to hear about Mac updates!

Everything but the Mac Mini! But that's fine, since I just got mine a few weeks ago. Nice to know it would be obsolete just yet.


I can't wait to see what the new Airs have to offer.


Also, maybe a new TB display with USB 3.0 ports?

I'm really hoping for a quad core 13" MBP. I don't see the 13" MBP and MBA being redundant; I think the MBP should be what it's labeled as, "pro." I don't want to have to get a 15". I want a portable (<15") powerhouse, and at the moment, Apple does not offer one.

I think the MBP line should basically contain the same internals, just catered to those who want screen size options. The higher screen sizes could obviously hold more parts, but there's hardly anything "pro" about a 2012 notebook still using dual core processors IMO, let alone on board graphics.

don't just convert dollars
down here in Aus we pay 20-50% more than the UK and US for everything, AFTER converting.
i bought my ipad in the states while on holiday and it was like getting a $200 discount!
last song i bought on itunes from my australian account was US$2.50
if i had an american account it would have been 0.99US OR AUD $0.90

Those MBA prices look delicious -- I just hope that means the base 11" MBA model is now 128 SSD and the 256 SSD is going for approx $1,200.

And come ooooon better battery life!!

You found them unnecessary but yours is not fact or even universal opinion

Those demos do more to explain the hardware in terms that the common buyer can understand than any spec list that a genius like you understands without such assistance. So don't expect to go anywhere.

Dumping my 2010 Air this weekend. I can live without it for a few weeks to gain an extra $100 or so before Apple drops the price themselves.
