    I'm pretty confident in a new product release.

    I'm wondering why there is another thread on this subject when there is a dozen already posted ones.

    Unfortunately no to the 14th as there is just too little evidence given how close to the date we are.

    I believe that the update will occur in November, as well.

    Agreed

    No. It will either be in October or November. All signs seem to indicate that this will be the case. Also, supplies of the old models are almost completely gone.

    There were no invites today, which makes it unlikely that we will see them in the next week. Note, that it is still possible, but in my opinion it is likely not going to happen.

    It is looking more and more likely that it will happen in November. I'm guessing that it will either be the last week of October or the first week of November, at the latest.

    A few people said they checked their local Apple Store and they were out of MBs and MBPs. While I could see some of the other retailers not carrying inventory because of rumors, I don't believe an Apple Store would simply stop carrying MBs for the same reason. If they're anything like most major retailers, they have an automatic shipping system that orders or reorders products as they get low, and as of right now, a MBP can be shipped in 24 hrs (2-3 days if custom). There should be very little reason for a company to not carry more than one of its few product lines at all times. While it may be true that the employees don't get any company info and search different sites like we do, I don't believe they would hold off on ordering unless the company says to or just stops shipping to them.

    I hope they're available on launch day. It'll be a long road trip to hit an Apple store, but I'm ready to leave on launch day to buy one at the Apple store if they're available.

    There will be tons of new products on 10/14, but probably not from Apple. There's still no invitation for the event, it's still not known whether this event will happen, so the chances are slim. In the past, they've only once have been later with the announcement and media-invitations (2005).

    And with all this economic uncertainties, who knows which strategy will Apple choose right now to introduce its new products. Maybe it's just a wrong moment to introduce whatsoever. Maybe they'll choose to wait and see: there probably would be no or minimal press coverage at the moment. All media are obsessed by other things right now.

    this thread is very inaccurate considering that most of the posts were here before any of the macbook pictures were released....
    The possibility is much greater now, the new info just keeps flowing in

    And so whats your point? Apple almost never has events for notebook releases. The Air being the only real exception in recent years....the unveiling of the new MacBook line was done w/ a silent launch.

    "Oh we have these laptops...and they look a little different...see bigger trackpad...oh! and these nifty keyboards...yeah...thats all...thanks for coming..."
