    I agree -- I believe that's what he meant -- reading from engadgets live coverage.

    I wonder exactly what this means? More product announcements or more OS X announcements. I actually hope a iPhone comes up. I wish apple made all their announcements today, but I guess I can wait a couple days.

    The mac pro looks very awesome though!

    There can be just one reason. Not enough Meroms for the MBP n iMac. But atleast they could`ve announced it with shipping after a month.

    I assumed they'd be Apple's announcements. :confused:

    I'll check some other sources.

    EDIT: Nope, not Apple's Annoucements (via Engadget)

    Even if there are no more product announcements tomorrow (and from the looks of it, a lot of you doubt it), there can still be a "One More Thing" event. Remember how Apple launched the 5G iPod and iPod Nano last year? This could happen. So, in all likelihood, hold out some hope. In all likelihood, the question of upgrade is a "when" question, not an "if" question. Heck, I am holding off on buying an MBP until they have a good processor in it.

    If you love a thing good enough, you will wait for it. This is why you are a Mac user people!!! :D

    I'm surprised they didnt just say, hey we gots some merom in the MBP and it will be avaible later.....

    What is wrong with that? Oh, well guess the waiting continues....

    of course it is a when question but I seriously doubt they will upgrade anything until the ipod college rebate is over.

    Processor Upgrades won't be Keynote-worthy

    Just throwing in my 2-cents, but Apple has previously said they want to get away from these major events for predictable updates. Intel has not officially announced the shipping date for laptop Merom chips, and despite the past where Apple has typically been the first to announce a new processor, Intel will be the first to announce new chips going forward.

    Apple would never announce a Laptop update today that isn't shipping for a month because all of the current machines are selling so well and Apple doesn't want to rob Back-to-School sales. We all follow the Apple Rumor Mill, most people don't and if they are going to school they are just going to pick up whatever machine fits their needs. If new machines had been announced, Apple would have to discount their current line-up and they still wouldn't sell well.

    I expect Apple to announce updates to Intel Core 2 Duo and Solo processor with either immediate or near immediate shipping when they have enough processors on hand to fulfil demand and their current inventories have been decreased. I expect the announcement will come at about the same time as every other vendor announces C2D shipping. (Thus iMac and possibly Mac-Mini first (next 2 weeks) and laptops shortly there after (around Sept 1st)).

    IMHO as long as Apple continues to use Intel processors you won't see many updates to existing computer products at keynotes unless there is a redesign of the enclosure or a significant new hardware feature. Processors aren't that important anymore.

    Downdivix - Intel HAS ANNOUNCED that Meroms HAVE BEEN shipping in quantity for two weeks now. It was part of their quarterly finance review. The info came directly from their CEO. Merom IS their "laptop" chip.
