    Only if apple got an early shipment of those chips from intel. Rumor is macs are transporting to apple by ship now.

    Well if they were truly on ships for sale now then it is quite possible that they could incoporate Z-68. Apple has released product the same week Intel announced availability of it.

    I think, yes it is. They wait for new Z68 chipsets for better perfomance and deliver it faster than others, was like 2011 macbook pro B3 revision chipsets.

    Obviously some mod doesn't have a good sense of humor :( I thought that little nerd humor segue was awesome - and the terrible drawing yet following through with conviction just sold it!

    I don't know where you live but it's still April on earth. Looks like it's going to be May 32nd for sure. Around a quarter after 1:37 ampm.

    agreed. that little nerd rage made my day -- and made the wait much more manageable! :(

    I wrote 'early' April - which is what many threads put down as most likely release dates especially with the Final Cut Pro reveal. When that came and went, the next logical step was the new chipset causing the delay....

    It really did make me laugh - you'd think the mod would at least say why he/she found that so objectionable, especially in light of some of the posts that exist on this forum. Oh well. :rolleyes:

    So it's looking more and more like May 3rd....
    Now just hoping for the Z68 chipset with a 20gig SSD to boost the effective hard drive throughput
    See this graph from Tom's - LINK
