    I emailed a local Mac seller, who sells at wholesale price here, asking him if he would be selling the new MBP at wholesale price if and when they are released. This was the response I got back

    "Yes, we will sell the new version(mid october) but then
    Please feel free to email me when they are released.

    Cheers"


    sound It sounds good to me. now I think this guy is slightly shady but if that's the case then maybe that's the reason I got the info from him if you know what I mean.

    No one but Apple knows. No one outside of Apple has any "inside information" about product releases. If you search the forums, you'll find dozens of threads on this topic, filled with opinions, speculations, rumors, guesses.... but no one knows for certain.

    Yeah, I seriously doubt your local mac dealer has any more info. than we do. I wouldn't be surprised if he is a member of MacRumors and simply responded based on the information he read on this site.

    If no one on the this forum knows, I doubt that guy knows.

    I also had another thought, maybe Apple will have them a week or two before the resellers? Making a Sept 30 release possible

    THIS IS NOT INSIDER INFORMATION.

    retailers get informed about new incoming stock if any. They definitely don't know how it will look like and what are the specs but they do know some days in advance that something is coming in to prepare for new stock.

    How do you think it works when apple announces something like a new iPod and you find it available the same day in stores. It arrives a couple of days in advance.

    First, there's a difference between "inside information" and "insider information". I never referred to insider information.

    Second, I said "no one outside of Apple". Apple stores are part of Apple. :rolleyes:

    And your point is? My original statement was "No one outside of Apple has any "inside information" about product releases." That means "shady" Mac wholesalers don't have advance knowledge about new Mac releases, and when new products are released, they don't show up at "shady" Mac wholesalers on the same day, like they do in Apple-owned stores.

    Please kids, we're not in grade school anymore!

    And no one Apple outside of Apple should know what's going on. If they did, you probably had to sign a NDA.

    My point was he wasn't talking about "Apple stores" to begin with.

    for what it's worth, my ex wife who sells for apple, not an apple store, but inside apple corporate. I asked her about a new MBP release and she responded that she's only heard rumors (guessing disclosure agreement?) but her sales will be up in October.
