    Just typed this out! :p

    But the Hong Kong store and others are down, too.

    The US and Canada stores are still up.

    If theres C2D MB's - I might return mine, its only 10 days old, and there's some problems with it that don't really bother me that much but if there's newer models, then so be it!

    No, it's typically one of the last to switch over.

    US store goes down last and they all come up together.

    Apple could update the whole thing in the blink of an eye but the exposure they get from dragging out the update is pretty high so they milk it for all its worth.

    It's too early over there, they shouldn't even be up yet, let alone browsing the store!

    no, they do maintanence at like 3 in the morning, not 7:15 eastern. Its a product update, us store will go down for a second before 8 and then they will come up with a new slogan"the best just got better" sounds about right
