    ...and see what happens?

    Will you end up getting your new MBP ahead of the rest of us droids OR sent one of the existing models and end up having to return it and thus receive your new model later than everyone else??
    :eek::eek::eek:

    I'm tempted to try it.

    You're probably correct. Then why even quote 3-5 days on the website? Why not just reflect a 24-hr turn-around until the moment of the refresh?

    What point does the 3-5 day notice serve if they're just going to send me a 2010 model? Won't Apple just hold onto any orders between now and Thursday and send some kind of email notification asking if you would like the new one?

    They're depleting stock levels which means if you order one now you may have to wait for it to be shipped from somewhere not local to you. As a result you'd probably end up getting a 2010 model.

    lots of guts(?)....you get a 2010 and you simply return it.

    whats the down side?

    No they will not ... if you ordered now ... they would send you exactly what you ordered ... the only MBP that is available at the time you ordered.

    Just "trying" to think outside the box, as it were...

    ...and apparently, nothing is outside the box since we have no #*$&# leaked photos.

    New 2010 MBP's are still going strong on ebay. Most bidders are only saving $50 or so.

    God, I miss those days when I would sell stuff there just hoping for a decent price and ended up getting twice what it was worth. :D
