    Anybody have any ideas as to why?

    Note: Apple Store US, UK, and Spain are all down. That's good enough confirmation for me.

    I don't want to give my hopes up, so I'm going to tell myself it's just regular maintenance.

    It'd be absolutely amazing/surprising if they just so happened to update the MBP's this evening. :)

    One can hope, I suppose...

    There's not much hope, but some. Just figured it'd be fun to perhaps stir up some speculation.

    They shut down occasionally for maintenance, you know. Though, it's not usually at this time of night (usually later). They also don't usually release products at night either though, and especially on a Thursday night.

    Of course, they could just be trying to catch us all by surprise, but somehow that doesn't sound like smart business. ;)

    In all honesty, it doesn't matter what they "usually" do. They "usually" update intel products every six months, but we've been waiting more than eight. Anything goes at this point, I'd say.

    Mac Mini

    Minor update to Mac Mini.. minor update to Mac Mini.... I soooo want to buy a Mini now but I know they are just waiting for me to purchase. Although maybe they have seen me start to order and then delete it from my cart last Sun and Tues so they THINK I ordered one. :D

    But yes it is probably nothing. I'll just go watch Lost. :apple:

    That would be a huge mistake for apple to do that. I hope they don't.
