    Doesn't seem promising does it.....I hope it won't be the case but maybe the new Hardware announcements have been delayed until January so :apple: can really clean out the inventory in the run up to christmas....

    As truth be told, Macbook's will still sell like hot cakes this holiday season regardless of updates who the average consumer has no idea are coming.....

    ----------My English is poor.--------------------------------


    我知道全世界都在等待傳說中的十月十四日MacBook / MacBook Pro的大改款發表會
    I know the whole world is waiting for the brand new MB/MBP's coming out on Otc 14
    而且其實我也在等著買新款的MB/ MBP畢竟MBA有點殘障 不夠我用
    Meanwhile , actually, I'm waiting for it, too. After all, my current MBA doesn't meet my needs.
    但是...
    But
    很抱歉我今天要講一個讓大家失望的消息
    I'm sorry to tell u guys a bad news.

    來自美國Apple內部的深喉嚨
    The info comes from US apple inside
    今天剛給我新的消息
    I just got the news Today
    OCT 14將不會有MB/ MBP 上市發表會甚至這個月都不會有
    MB/MBP won't come out on OCT 14, even the whole OCT.
    當然了 原因很多
    Of course, there r lots of reasons
    想知道內情的人可以PM詢問我但簡單的從日期就可知道要是Oct 14有發表會的話
    Those who wanna know somethin inside could PM me.
    之前Apple早就有新聞稿露出什麼Let's Rock , SomeThing in Air 之類的發表會訊息了
    Simply because if there's an event on OCT 14, somethin should have been leaked, like the word Let's Rock , SomeThing in Air
    但直到今天
    But so far.
    每天傳來的都是Apple股價慘跌的新聞 (我看很快跌破90)
    Everyday news comes, all things r about the decreaing stock price.
    這個時機發表MB/ MBP 對於拉抬AAPL的股價是完全沒有太大幫助
    It won't be helpful if APPLE announces new MB/MBP.
    不如壓著兩個小寶貝渡過這次光輝十月股災再說吧
    It's better to hide these two babies during the October's stock disaster
    那何時會有蘋果兩個寶的發表會呢?
    Then when will APPLE hold an event?
    最快也要十一月了
    NOV is the earliest.
    詳情再請多關注本站持續的報導吧
    If u wanna know more, Plz browse our site later.

    ok, well when you can, try to contact him to ask for some more details. I don't think there are many people in this forum who speak Chinese ;)

    Thanks,

    1.If he had information why wouldn't he post it if he is willing to give it away? Plenty of people want to know.

    2. "Let's Rock" wasn't known until 9/2/08 when event invites went out. Just like now, there was speculation of an event but no title. If next Tuesday roles around with no invites, then you can say we should have heard something (not that something should have been leaked unless you consider an official invite from apple a leak).

    I am not saying there will be an event, but if anyone is going to claim there isn't (or is for that matter) don't do it with stupid reasons.

    The rumored October release date doesn't prove or disprove a damn thing.

    and neither did this thread.....


    I dont care that much that it conradicts what i want (the oct release), i just dont like when people pass off what obviously doesnt have any evidence supporting it as fact, or close to valid.

    Personally. the longer you folks wait.... and you can wait till the new year, doesn't bother me in the slightest. The more time I have to sell my MBP, though I don't to have a redesigned thing... I just have a need for a MBP anymore.

    That's been my experience selling Apples for the last year. A month or to before an event I mention it to prospective customers that new models might be coming out. Not once has a customer known about the upcoming event. They appreciate that I would possibly lose a sale so that they can get the newest model. But they come back later and buy from me and tell their friends where they can get sales help that's looking out for them.

    But it's a two edged sword. A soon as the Nvidia 8800 video card fiasco surfaced, I started advising customers about that situation. Lost a few sales there. I hate it when a great company like Apple treats it's customers as shabbily as it has done with it's silence over the 8800 disaster. With $20B in the bank, Apple should have done the right thing and taken back the MPB with a full refund. I can't believe they still maintain their iron curtain silence on the matter.

    This is no different from some random blogger speculating on Apple's release dates.

    According from the book of Jobs chapter 24 verse 36:

    "But of that day and hour no one knoweth, not the angels of heaven, but the Steve alone."

    ^^^Depends on his track record, though.


    Anyway, I wouldn't be too surprised. I never knew where this October 14th rumour came from. We haven't heard any sort of leaks or anything more than speculation. There has been nothing from the likes of Kevin Rose, or anymore "leaked photos" of the MBP or MB case coming out of Taiwan.

    I was never a believer in the Oct 14th announcement date.....not until Apple announces it themselves.

    While this makes conventional sense, the new iPods on 9/9/08 raised Apple's stock only slightly, and then it continued to fall for the rest of the month.

    Of course this could (and probably is) tied to the current economic situation.

    The idea is that the stock price is below what they believe it to be at. When the stock becomes more stable and as high as it can get, THEN introduce the new products -- so that you get the most raise possible in the period.
