Most likely. I'm not a betting person, but Apple usually rolls out new pro machines during these types of events and what better way to show off the MBPs running C2D than a demonstration of Aperture 2.0. :)

I'm not sure why Aperture gets knocked by so many people, it seems pretty impressive for a new comer in this market.

I don't want to speculate what they will be announcing on the 24th, but I'll be anxiously waiting. :)

I will be going to the Photokina, I live like 30min away. Maybe I can go to the special event too :D

I'll see if I need a ticket/invitation (probably not, I am not getting my hopes up yet)

Oh good, I was just coming down from anticipation for the last special event, but Apple's always there with my fix.

Obviously you're not a golfer.
announcing the C2D MBP alongside next rev of aperture seems to be a natural fit. i really want to keep beliveing that the new MBP will happen in september, and this seems like a perfect time for it.

Hmmm, an Aperture update would be cool. I wonder if they would make any financial "concessions" to people who have recently purchased Aperture... :eek:

I hope so, at the latest. Though I'm hoping more for this tuesday the 19th, sort of how apple released the iMacs a week before their "It's Showtime" event--keep everything staggered by a week or so.

But Photokina seems like a good opportunity to, if not announce publicly, at least silent update them.

My take on this: Apple releases new MBP's next week and Aperture 2 at the special event. Kind of like they did with the iMac vs the movie downloads.

Btw, the 24th is a Sunday ... has Apple ever released anything on a Sunday? Or held an event?

next one - apple seems to get in mood for more invitations...

i like these shows very much, especially when rumors are getting real products :-D

but why aren't there anymore livecasts from these shows?!? a stream after the event isn't that exciting!!

Funny how we're all looking for that same glimmer of hope. :)

If nothing else, 9-24 is extremely close to 9-27 - the date on which Dell claims to be shipping their (Merom) Core 2's.

Signs look good, but by now, I'm not getting my hopes up.

Yup. I agree. And I bet the new MBPs will ship immediately as well. What would be really cool is if Apple lowered the price of Aperture to $199 or so to make it more affordable to the photo piddlers among us. After all, surely Aperture 2 is going to have massive hardware and GPU requirements (read: QuadCore Mac + 4GB RAM + X1900 video card). That is really where Apple makes it's cash. Just dreaming, of course, because I can't justify a $300 software package when I'm just a dabbler. Lightroom beta has been fun though.

Hey, across the pond, Nokia's putting in 3.2 MP's in some models with a Carl Zeiss.

But I doubt we'd be seeing an iPhone here.

Wait a minute! It the event is Sept. 24 here, wouldn't it be Sept. 25 in London? Is it a relay there?

Not sure why people would get excited about an iCamera. There are many excellent DSLRs out now from companies that have a lot more expertise in building cameras than Apple. I'd rather have a Canon Rebel XT or maybe that new Pentax.

Apple has been stockpiling TONS of great products for the past six months and now we are going to see a barrage of releases. I for one welcome said releases. I really hope they bring out the MBPs.
