    Still down here in the UK too....06:20AM. I've got a feeling this could be the long awaited refresh....Not my upgrade year though, so just curious this time around.

    I think it is possible. If they do a Mac Pro refresh, I see it being a quiet refresh not involved with the major refreshes coming at WWDC.

    Could be!
    Who knows?
    There's something due any day;
    I will know right away,
    Soon as it shows.
    It may come cannonballing down through the sky,
    Gleam in its eye,
    Bright as a rose!

    Who knows?
    It's only just out of reach,
    Down the block, on a beach,
    Under a tree.
    I got a feeling there's a miracle due,
    Gonna come true,
    Coming to me!

    Could it be? Yes, it could.
    Something's coming, something good,
    If I can wait!
    Something's coming, I don't know what it is,
    But it is
    Gonna be great!

    etc.

    That would make quite a lot of sense.

    The only reason I can see them releasing Wednesday instead of Tuesday is because Monday was a national holiday, pushing things back a day.

    They could just be changing the price of a mDP->DVI adapter...

    Yes.

    If you are correct you should get a macrumors prize of some sorts.

    Down in the Netherlands too.
    I am curious to see if new products are gonna be launched or it is just a restyle.

    I hope to see the new MBA out today :) I got my credit card ready for it!

    Ultra-low voltage CPUs required for the new MBA seem to be delayed so I wouldn't get my hopes up.

    I actually hope it won't be a product update. Big updates such as retina, thinner form factor (MacBook Pro) would probably warrant a WWDC announcement. If they updated the product now, it means that the refreshed components weren't worth a full-blown WWDC introduction.

    None of those things have anything to do with a Mac Pro.

    I think it is taking too long for it to be a new product. They are probably doing site maintenance. For a new product, don't they usually already have everything ready? I remember when the 4S went up, the store wasn't even down for an hour.

    If there is anything major, my guess is back to school promotion. But it seems a little early.

    Last couple of Mac product refreshes in 2011 took between 1.5 and 2 hours.

    Another possible explanation is that they are doing work to reveal stuff quickly during WWDC, but they did site maintenance just recently on a Sunday. We can only speculate.
