    Just wondering if there was any word/seeds or w/e on 10.5.6?

    Just curious because we speculate new notebooks will debut on Tuesday 10/14 and I figure they will have different/updated drivers at the minimum, if not significant other changes than whats included in 10.5.5.

    Thanks all

    If the $3,100 price point is real, there is a 20% chance that that will have Blu-ray.

    If there's Blu-ray, there will be a 10.5.x update with these notebooks.

    If not, it'll be 10.5.5 with specific drivers for the new machines.

    Just like the MacBook Air only ran a modified version of 10.5.1 and not the highly anticipated 10.5.2.

    Buy the 17" model and install a Blu-ray drive yourself. Problem solved.

    Yeah not if they make the clearance in the 17" the same as the 15" in the refresh.

    10.5.6 hasn't been on Page 1 for some time. I'm sure we'll all be checking build numbers on Tuesday for the new hardware.

    Maybe we'll get a surprise announcement like 10.4.4?
