I don't even know if I'm allowed to post this, since the Arrandale thread is closed... Some of you may remember that I posted on the fourth Arrandale thread about how my friend's dad works at apple, and she said that she knew the release date of the updated MBP, but she wouldn't tell me. I bugged her and bugged her, and she didn't tell me. Today, though, while I was whining and showing her the un-updated page on apple, she mentioned that the release date had been pushed back. I asked her if it was because of the whole graphics card thing, and she said yes. I then asked her what the old release date was, since she might as well tell me now. She told me it was March 28th. Now, she's not a very good liar- she's actually a really terrible liar...but that's not a Tuesday, is it? It's a Sunday...which is suspicious. I could assume she was just telling me the day they'd be ready or something, and the plan could have been to release that Tuesday, but I dunno... The timeframe does make sense- after the iPad and all- and quite a few other rumors pointed to the end of march. I know this isn't very solid information, but it's a bit more than a rumor, at least. Tomorrow I'll bother her about that date again, and see what she does- if she seems like she's lying, I shall retract my post xD But I don't think she is... Of course, all that tells us is that the next three weeks are out. In conclusion, I hope I have not broken any rules- yes, I know the one about making stuff up (believe me, I have better things to do than to make something like this up). Hopefully I can get a little more information, or at least verify what I have. Tell me if anything I said was confusing/wrong/evil. PS- I would have waited to post this until I question her further, but I thought people would appreciate what little information I have as soon as possible. Maybe other people could check around and see if they can corroborate this?
