    Its just a guess, what week do you think the rMBP's will arrive in October?
    Winners get to have the gratification of having guessing correctly, and everybody gets a chance to order or pick one up at the Apple store by the time we know for sure (we hope)!

    Pardon the typos..
    *When in October will the new rMBP be available
    *4th Week - Oct 20-26

    Many of us are hoping tomorrow. But any Tuesday in the next 3 weeks is a possibility.

    I think it'll be the 4th week, although I'm really hoping it will be sooner. My current laptop is screaming 'needs upgrading.'

    I'm waiting for Haswell refresh so that I could decide on whether to get an Alienware 14, Razer Blade Pro (both GT 765M) or rMBP 15". If Intel's Iris Pro (very likely) then bye bye Apple :mad:

    OP: I think 15 October.

    I'd say Alienware 14 is nowhere near as good as even the current rMBP:

    Very interesting how the poll shifted from the Week of Oct 15 to more people leaning towards the week of Oct 22...

    It will be due to the release of the OSX Mavericks Golden Master - the last master that was released there were (if I remember correctly) 16 days before GM and launch.

    This would leave us on the week beginning 21st but Apple generally release things on a Tuesday.

    It's pretty much a toss up between the 15th and the 22nd.

    It looked like he was using a 2011 Alienware and a 2012 rMBP.

    Interestingly...

    Were getting a lot more votes on the Week of the 15th and the November 1+ after the announcement of the GM and the Earnings Report... it appears there are two groups...

    One that really really hopes there is some spark of hope for that Week of the 15th to be it....
    and the others that logically feel it will be in November before a Haswell rMBP sees the light of day...
