I noticed that too, but then again I've found Amazon's stock status to be much more reliable than BestBuy's What is the typical lag time between stores running out and a refresh hitting?Best Buy still has them.
I assume you mean 27th... why would apple release the Macbook Pros one day before their "mobility" conference.fuel to the fire for a 1/26/2010 release for refreshed MBP's
Refresh Days between
So a January 26th refresh does fall nicely in the pattern from the last 3 1/2 years or so.
Not going to happen. They have the special event for the much rumored islate tablet. They do not want that to share the spotlight with a MBP update.jan 27th.
don't they usually announce it at their conferences, as it releases?
like, oh. here's the new macbook pro lineup, now being sold at all apple retail stores.
or "now being shipped" or whatever?
Well you have 14 days to take it back if the new ones come out before then. So hope for sooner rather than later.ehhhh, i just bought a 15" 2.8 yesterday oh well. while there the girl did tell me that i bought the last 15" 2.8 and they have been waiting 2 weeks for more to come in but nothing. they also had only 2 17" 2.8s in stock but the girl said they are the slowest sellers and again they were expecting more to come in but nothing yet. I did learn that the MBP 2.26 is the fastest seller and they get those in still when needed. The white 2.26 also is a fast seller and they get those in all the time.
I looked into that too, the problem is you"ll will more than likely have to pay the re-stocking fee in order to get the updated version or atleast thats the situation where I live.I agree with a lot of people on here, the 26th. Even though it's a major release, they may quietly update it - same thing happened not too long ago with the iMac. Which got the ever-so-important quad core processor.
Unless steve wants to bring back his "one more thing" because the MBP does fall into the mobility category, does it not? I think he would do it in this order: MBP, some things they've been working on with the iPhone 4.0 software update, then the "one more thing" being the tablet - sounds good to me!
