    After reading the 1000th post saying that, what makes you guys think that's the case?

    If anything the launch of the Macbook Pro on that day will detract all the attention that is to be focused on the iPhone SDK!

    I completely disagree, they are having a press event and can use it as a vehicle to get new products out. While the main focus of the event will be the SDK I can see them tacking on new MBPs on the tail end. Anyways they have done this before. Look at the event where they launched the ROKR and then the org iPod Nanos. The press event was for the ROKR but the Nanos stole the show. Anyways a lot of the features they would tack onto the Macbook Pro are ones they have already put on the AIR, so they would not require the same coverage by steve.

    You're both wrong. The main event of the convention is going to be the release of the newly announced iToaster

    I am refering to the:
    -Magnetic Latch (if you havent seen the MBA yet this is one of the best things about it)
    -New Keyboard (I tested it briefly and it seemed like a nice upgrade)
    -Multi-Touch trackpad (while this is simple now, I think it has potential for updates in the future)

    It's gonna be the new line of Apple home appliances (aka the new "iHome").

    Steve: "iToaster, iMicrowave, iFridge, iFreezer, iStove, iOven, iDishwasher, iBlender, etc..... Now that's what I call an iHome."

    lol.

    I think I agree with the OP but not for the same reason.

    I believe Apple would prefer to stagger their releases so they can brag again about 2008 being the year of 'new releases'.

    I think we will see the MBP update on a seperate date, but a Tuesday nonetheless.

    you said the nanos stole the show...if they want the event to show off the SDK for the iPhone then why would the announce the new MBP in fear that it might steal the show for the SDK?

    I say that we get the new MBP sometime before i die. gives apple about 50 years to release something new in there pro line.

    Why would Apple put the low end 2.5Ghz right next to the high end 2.6Ghz? It'd make more sense to make 2.4Ghz the new low end and keep the 2.6Ghz. They won't use the core 2 extreme because it uses some ridiculous amount of power (45W instead of 35W).

    I would have to agree that I don't think the MBP is coming out this month. The SR refresh isn't a big enough change for the trouble really. I'll think they'll wait for Montevina, which will allow them to redesign the thing from the ground up if they so desire. Also, the new Nvidia mobile graphics chips will be out, so the ENTIRE machine will have new hardware.

    I'd also assume that SSD will make an appearance, hopefully it will be more affordable. 128GB SSD's are $3000, but 64GB is $1000 now (in the MBA anyway.......), and should drop at least a little soon, when more laptops start to support it.

    Based on those predictions, I think it would also be safe to say that without the hard drive, a smaller logic board, more efficient processor, and LCD displays all around, this will be the most power-efficient Mac ever, and have a significantly longer battery life.
