    Hey just thought I'd post this.
    My University ordered a bunch of MacBook Pros on July 1st, and we've just been notified that they haven't shipped yet, however the macbooks from that order have. And the new MacBook Pros aren't shipping until the 21st. Could this be the Centrino 2 update everyone's been waiting for?
    Not sure but it could be!

    you said it was a uni that ordered.. could it simply be because of the mass order?

    I ordered mine the 8th of july, but it wasn't delayed or anything, in fact it got delivered today.

    So I'm gonna guess it's something else, probably what bc008 said.

    I think so, but I don't think the university would order a bunch of custom made ones. I figure they'd order the stock versions.

    I guess the university placed a massive order ... but it still does not rule out a refresh.

    Doesn't make sense to me that the university would get delayed for the refresh, and not me..who ordered a week later :rolleyes:

    It could be a mixture of both reasonings. University had a massive order so it will ship when they get enough montevina mbp! :p

    And the person who ordered one recently was just 1 order which was much easier to fill so they shipped it right away. :eek: :apple:

    It wouldn't surprise me for the update to come in the form of a small refresh to the Macbook Pro line. Apple might not even have a keynote or announcement for the design changes. It isn't really necessary given the massive amount of attention that Apple gets on websites such as Macrumors.com and other general gadget websites.

    Thinking back does anyone remember there being a big announcement from Apple regarding the multitouch changes to the Macbook Pro line?

    For what it's worth, here is my 2 cents.

    Silent refresh on the 22nd or around there with Montevina.

    Case redesign w/ Nehalem whenever SJ decides he likes us.

    We'll just wait till the 22nd and see if this MAYBE is true!

    Just a side question... Is it worth it to wait a year or so for Nehalem? Will it be such dramatic improvement over the current (or Montevina) MBs that it makes it worth it to stay a year without a MB?

    It's supposed to be a 20-30% increase over the best chips today.

    I'd think it might be a little better than that, if you give it another 3 months after the first release. That's what I'm thinking I'm going to do.

    Eh.. I want some shiny new kit now and then I'll want some new shiny kit when Nehalem is released so it isn't a big deal for me.

    I just sold my Santa Rosa Macbook Pro and I'll sell the Montevina Macbook Pro when Nehalem is about to be released.

    Shiny new kit is like giving yourself a Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Birthday, Easter, just because gift to yourself in the form of a big snuggly hug. Yeah.. I said it. :D

    My school mass ordered dells for their students way before school started...some students still went without their orders a few weeks into the school year.

    Sorry to burst your bubble, but customized or not, mass orders take a while to complete.
