    I wanted to pass along some information I heard from a friend. She says her contacts at the local Apple store are expecting new MBP's on Friday (yes, THIS Friday the 18th). Not sure how reliable this rumor is, but I will get in touch with her again to find out more details. She said the upgrade would include the Santa Rosa chipset. Cross your fingers!

    Whether Friday, next Tuesday, or WWDC. The waiting game continues. All I can say is the sooner the better.

    I heard from a friend of a friend who's uncle's barber cut Steve Job's hair one day and got wind that there will be new ultraportable MBP with a 9" screen introduced on Sunday at 2 a.m. !!!

    I'll try to get more info when I go get my hair cut tomorrow!

    no way. 2 updates on separate days in one week? I think not. And a friday launch? again, I doubt it.

    next tuesday.

    You know guys, you're all slamming possibly a reliable update with pacifiers etc...At least respect the news and put up some positives instead of bs...

    I for one am hoping that it's Friday!!

    I'd trust the cats but I'm not sure about the dog. How do you know he is not just trying to muscle in on the cats' action?

    Apple releases products on Tuesdays by standard practice, sorry to say, but if Apple was releasing new laptops it would be on a Tuesday. Like the super weak MacBook update.

    Unless you're desperate, it'd make sense to wait. There's a reasonable chance you only have to make it till June 11.

    Read my Thread and youll see why. Tuesday is the longest i would wait. I hear Apple has a 2 week Grace period that lets you get the newest model if u purchase the older one at least 2 weeks before. http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=305131

    Here's a positive:
    "I am positive that this rumor is wrong."

    Tuesdays only, if the rumor has a release day that is not a Tuesday then it's most likely a bogus rumor.

    Uh, yes you get two weeks. And June 11 is more than 2 weeks away from this weekend. Suit yourself, just trying to help.

    It's possible. I think Apple did release something on a Friday before. Apple can choose any day they want to.
