Well ... I gambled and looks like it didn't pay off. (yet) 13 days ago I bought a 2.66 15"MacBook Pro I called the local Apple store just a minute ago and asked about upgrading to the 2.8. For a few reasons: 1.) If I get stuck with an old model might as well have the best. 2.) When The I-series comes out I made up my mind to get the top of the line one anyway. 3.)It will reset my 14 days and Ill get till the 23rd or 24th (if I wait till tomorrow) for the refresh. (Yes I know 2 restock hits, although I might have sweet talked the manager out of hitting me on this upgrade.) However, the disappointing news was when I asked about upgrading to the 2.8, they said they still had plenty of them in stock I didn't need to "hold" one.
