Just a story I heard today that I thought you might want to hear. A friend of mine recently purchased a 13" Macbook Pro from the Apple Store, and I made a point of saying that I was interested in buying one when the latest ones came out, most likely next week. Curiously enough, my friend noted that the folks working at the Apple Store actually pointed out right to her that new MBP's were imminent, and began listing off new features to be included in the latest MBP! All my friend could remember was that the new MBP's would be thinner, but I'm sure there was more. Of course, the news itself isn't groundbreaking (besides the fact that the Apple Store employee was presumably talking about the 13", which was previously believed not to be slimmed down -- we'll have to see) but personally I found it surprising and rather un-Apple-like to be so outright about their upcoming releases.
