    At the mall today he told her that new mac pros would be coming out within the next two to three weeks and that they would cost $3349.

    Wow, thanks for the scoop!

    I'm so excited.

    Mall employees know less than we do here about new product arrivals.

    Apple store employees know nothing about hardware updates.

    That's not to say new Mac Pros won't be coming out soon.

    Exactly, what was said g/f wearing at the time? I'm sure any apple employee was just happy to be talking to a girl that he'd make up anything!

    The only people who know about updates, whether software or hardware, are the people directly working on said software or hardware.

    Further, most of these people only know about the particular part their working on. For example, they developers who revamped Finder have no idea when the official leopard release date is only how close Finders virtual folders are to being stable (if that's what their working on).

    Apple has an ingrained secrecy culture. Even every bug report is tagged for clearance levels where only people of that clearance and higher can read it. For example, if a developer submits a bug report and someone higher then he posts a comment to that bug report the reports level is raised such that even submitter can no longer read it.

    Short version: There are very few people at apple that actually know the whole picture... including release dates.

    This post would have much more credibility if your post count wasn't 1.

    That said, I'm holding out till next week to buy a Mac Pro on the (desperate) hope that a new model will be released on Tuesday.

    If it isn't, I don't know what I'll do...

    Yeah she has a nice bod so I figured he might just be saying that to her. Nonetheless its what he said, and I thought I would politely relay the information.

    And forget the newbie crap, I've been round here for a while waiting for a damn mac pro update just like the rest of you I just never felt the need to post because I figured all you computer savy tech men would get the scoop before me. Like I said, just relaying the information.

    Not trying to "flame" or get props for getting some super secret insider info, just what I heard...

    If you've been around here that long, then you know we'd rather have picture of your girlfriend holding the Mac instead of the drool from the dude at the Apple Store.

    I got plenty of pictures brother, just on another website :apple:

    Has anyone actually thought to go to an apple store and ask somebody if they were coming out soon, or do we only lurk behind our out dated mac pros waiting to call bs on anyone who dares grab some info that doesn't happen to be locked away at NORAD...

    Krunk, you've been watching too many top secret government spy movies, its Apple, not NATO's Top Secret Nuclear Silo Classified Security Alliance.

    The Genius at the Apple Store just told me that the new Mac Pros will come with a free pony! I'm so psyched! I was wearing this:

    Hot looking me!

    So, I figure that's why he shared his insider knowledge with me.

    I think the Apple guy's meaning behind Mac Pro wasn't directed towards a computer.

    That was probably code for "meet you same place, same time next week"

    I picked up my first three wives by lying to them about when Mac Pro updates would be coming out. Nothing gets a girl hotter than a little hardware rumor-mongering...
