    While I look forward to Aperture 1.5, I am highly dismayed by the lack of MBP updates, especially since mine is dying right before my eyes.

    Since everyone knows that MacRumor users are never happy after an event, I want to be the first to say:

    What gives, Apple? WHERE IS MY MEROM MBP!!!!!!!:mad: :mad: :mad: :mad:

    </rant>

    Hey the good news is Apple isnt sitting on its hands.

    the bad news is people like us keep waiting. Well, i hope i dont have to wait too much longer.

    Apple... please come with the new MBP, the MB can wait, cause it is the lower end product.

    Also, please make an airplane/auto Magsafe power adapter. the lack of it is really pissing people off. Either make it or allow a third party to do it

    First time I've ever felt let down by Apple. It's really quite shocking. :eek: ;)

    I'm waiting like everyone else, but really didn't expect to see it today. I think tomorrow is only a slight possibility, not only because it's a Tuesday, but I think tomorrow is the day that "Intel endorses Apple" or some such nonsense. Even then, I don't think it's coming. I'm guessing - and I do mean GUESSING - we'll probably (hopefully) see something in October.

    Although I really don't care about the upgrade personally, my Blackbook is all I need and more, I have to admit the delay here is.....puzzling.

    I wonder if they'll wait for a quad core?

    I mean, if they rebuild the enclosure to allow easy ram and HD access then maybe anything is possible...

    how long until the quad core is announced?

    It's not in our hands.
    It'll happen when it happens.

    Wait for the update or get the current ones.

    That would be wicked sweet.
    The desktop version is going to be released mid-November.

    Thanks for that helpful advice. I'm sure there are other discussions you can help with, please hurry.

    now I'm going to need to edit my post too.
    Please don't go.

    aaand... does anyone know about any lower power quad core processors from intel, would they be something other than clovertown?

    Realityman strikes again! ;)

    Look what happens when Apple doesn't update their hardware.
    Suddenly everyone has a scowl on their face and their walking around mad.

    Yech, salad. You must be hurting something serious.

    Anyways, I'll be in the same boat tomorrow. I've still got some hope for tomorrow, but if not... *prepares to sob uncontrollably*

    The delay with Merom is kind of weird. Maybe they have something up their sleeve? (Probably not though, Apple just likes to see us suffer. :p )

    Apple better get those 'stuff' out of their sleeves before half their customers are going to wait for MacWorld SF 2007. :rolleyes: :(

    Maybe it's the Merom and MB/Ps that doesn't fit right to what Apple had expected...

    While I do understand that folks waiting for a MBP or MB with the new processors are anxious, and I can't half blame them, it's just really getting tiring reading this stuff. And yeah, I know I don't have to read it, but the place is just littered with MBP and MB thread titles.

    Remember when we had no idea what the roadmap was? I almost like it better. Now, with Intel, we know exactly when chips are released and people have been literally wetting their pants until it goes into an Apple product.

    1. There are hardly an 64-bit apps that most people, even professionals use. The likelyhood of 64-bit apps being widespread during the life of your notebook is s-l-i-m, slim. I can however understand someone waiting for one if they have a specific 64-bit app to use.

    2. We're not talking a massive speed bump here, and I'd say hardly noticeable for most people, even professionals. Maybe 20% at most. What's thi big deal? I mean Ars Technica or Gizmodo aren't jumping up[ and down over these chips as they are in PCs.

    3. While I have no idea, I really don't see a major redesign coming. I'm sure there are some nice things and minor feature tweaks coming, but I just don't feel like we'll see these "extreme" form factor changes until January - just makes more sense. I dould be wrong, but oh well.

    4. If you need a computer today to make a living, do schoolwork or, something critical, get it. I didn't do a bunch of rumour site wandering and running around when I bougt my last two machines - I needed them to do work. If you're not in that camp, fine, but good gracious, I've never seen this board so lathered up over a small chip enhancement.

    The end. :D
