    Sounds a bit more like what we're hearing. Nothing too drastic, just some minor cosmetic changes with some more BTO options. I can dig it.

    I just don't buy the 1st March date for the Macbook Pro's, they're already running low on stock pretty much everywhere and that's over a week away.

    Well, I suppose there is a possibility that they could mention that they were just released "last week" and talk up some of the features. I don't know.
