So far, I´ve just been following your guesswork here, and you really got me convinced that the MBP update was about to happen today. As it did obiously not, I would like to share some interesting thought I read on a german forum (can`t seem to find it anymore though, so can`t directly credit the original poster, sorry): Someone claimed that the update will not take place before Chinese New Year is over. It`s a big thing and traditionally lasts for 15days. These days, officially people get three days off, but usually take up to a week of holidays. So it really slows down business, and the original poster claimed that apple would not announce the MBP-update before it is over. Chinese New Year in 2010 starts on February 14, so: Update after the 23d. - Sorry guys to rain on your parade, but I found it interesting nonetheless.
