Hi guys,

How are you all coping with the wait for the new Macbook Pro? I think im going insane......me too!

I have been watching south park from start to finish and after each episode im hitting f5 on firefox, I try doing other things yet that somehow seems to make things worse!!!!! Any advice on how to hold back complete insanity for just a little longer would be greatly appreciated.

finally here is every lyric of the Happy Days theme song:

Sunday, Monday, Happy Days,
Tuesday, Wednesday, Happy Days,
Thursday, Friday, Happy Days,
Saturday, what a day,
Rockin all week with you.

This day is ours
Won't you be mine. (Oh Happy Days)
This day is ours (Oh Happy Days)
Oh please be mine.

Hello sunshine, goodbye rain,
She's wearing my high school ring on her chain.
She's my steady, I'm her man,
I'm gonna love her all I can.
(Chorus)
Gonna cruise her round the town,
Show everybody what I've found
Rock'n'roll with all my friends
Hopin' the music never ends.

These Happy Days are yours and mine (oh Happy Days)
These Happy Days are yours and mine (oh Happy Days)
These Happy Days are yours and mine, Happy Days.

Get a job, or a girlfriend, or just go outside, perhaps go to the pub. Do something other than posting about how you're waiting for the new MBP. It's not coming anytime soon, and I really don't know what you're talking about :confused::confused::confused:

You realize that its only a computer and apple will have faster newer more shiny ones after January as well.

I'm perfectly content with my 08 MBP model and I see no reason to buy a new one.

What tends to happen more often then naught is that people get so worked up in a frenzy (like the OP) and when the actual date comes, they're disappointed because apple didn't give them everything they wanted or hoped for.

Since these puppies are > 2,000 bucks, its going to be a long time before I upgrade my MBP.

Hehe, I'm sending my faulty Samsung NC10 back to Samsung (faulty), and if they replace with a brand new one I'll eBay it and await the new 13 inch MPB, oh yeah :)

Is your NC10 faulty by any chance? :D
Welll...it's been overheating for months and months, and I've suddenly the impulse to get a Mac so I'm sending it back before my warranty expires :) it's stupidly hard trying to stop myself buying the current gen as I can't wait!

I'm so excited to get a new MBP but at the same time I really feel like I should just wait for quad core. With my pre-unibody and my Mac Pro, I really feel the difference using a "lowly" dual core system after completing a project on my 8-core mac pro.

Technology is advancing so slowly lately.

There's no guarantee of a new MBP. I think this qualifies for voluntary insanity :D Don't worry, though. We don't have to wait too much longer for a announcement :cool:

i'm happy with my brand new 15" 2.8 I just bought a week ago. I honestly do not care about the update. Unless there is some crazy new feature besides the new chip. who knows if it comes out (which I highly doubt) within the 14 day period I might exchange it.

LOL I have no issues with my two week old uni!

Cheers!
For a first mac purchase you can't fault people for wanting to wait a week or two, spend the same and get a 10-20% boost in performance. When you don't NEED and you just WANT it's worth a little more waiting to maximize your purchase.

I know that's what I'm doing, slightly delaying a new, expensive purchase in order to maximize the value of that purchase. Had I committed to a mac a month ago I would have just bought one, but as it is I'll have ended up with a 3 week delay unless I break down and order a referb heh.

I use my June 2009 13" MBP which is absolutely fine for the tasks I do, including writing iPhone apps.

I, however, am waiting on the Tablet annoucement, not that I'm going to get one. I just want to see what the hype is about. I can't drop a $1,000 on a tablet when I just got a Macbook Pro 13" :), and most likely getting an iPhone 4G ;-)

hey, i'm just as excited as the OP is, if not more so - there's nothing wrong with being excited. this will be my first laptop ever, and i was ready to buy one a month ago but i resisted the urge because i heard there was an update coming.

since i'm planning to buy the top of the line 17" model, there's no way i'd spend that much money just to see a better version come out a few weeks later. i learned that lesson the hard way when i bought this powermac g5 with ppc chips. i didn't do any research beforehand and sure enough, apple switched to intel about two months later. if i'd waited, i probably wouldn't be needing a new computer right now (i can't run animate pro on my current machine).

anyway, can't wait for the announcement!

That's not right. The version used on the show was:
Sunday, Monday, Happy Days.
Tuesday, Wednesday, Happy Days.
Thursday, Friday, Happy Days.
Saturday, What a day,
Groovin' all week with you.

These days are all,
Happy and Free. (Those Happy Days)
These days are all,
Share them with me. (oh baby)
Goodbye grey sky, hello blue.
There's nothing can hold me when I hold you.
Feels so right, it can't be wrong.
Rockin' and rollin' all week long.

These days are all,
Share them with me. (Those Happy Days)
These days are all, Happy and Free.
These Happy Days are your's and mine, Happy Days.

It's a strange and cruel truth that each Apple product is often more beautifully designed and desirable than the last yet they are also reliable and tend to last a long time.

I am also excited!! It will also be my first Mac and since I'm planing on getting the 13" for financial reasons I want to get the most for my money seeing as how am going to be recording music on it :)

So to all the people who dawg to OP because he's excited, go read another thread, because we all know that in less than two weeks a new MBP will be announced either at the Jan 27th event or not :) :apple:

Heck just enjoy the mac(s) you have ... screens are great, keyboards excellent they're all fast enough for most tasks and already cutting edge design.

We may not even see new MBP's or a spiced up MBA in January could be Spring/Summer .... who knows.

Most important is to build some sentimental value with your current equipment and enjoy it ... sure I get excited about new models too, and I usually upgrade but realize if you have a mac already you're doing pretty good :)
