So here's my story: I'm a Windows IT guy (server/network admin), and have decided to try a MacBook Pro for my new laptop this refresh cycle. I've been patently waiting for the new release, my old hardware was due for swap out this past March, but here I am sitting quiet and getting excited for the new goods. It's not an urgent "need" per say, as I have a desktop and could sacrifice mobility if they need to send back my old laptop whilst I wait on the Apple. Then on Monday rumors really started flying on TheVerge etc. I'm thinking things are good, we're a month or so away from a new device and I'll move to OSX along with a shiny new hardware release, killer screen, great CPU, new GPU, smaller form factor, blah blah blah. Then the email comes, not from my manager, or his manager, but the director of our department, user tspinning is due for new equipment, here is his basic option (crap Dell 6420, or basic 15" MBP), MUST be ordered by Thursday 5/17/2012. FML.
