    Does anyone know if that when the new MBP comes out on the 15th, will the price increase? because if the price increase is more than 100$ or 200$, then I dont want to wait and put off buying it. I will jsut buy it now. Also, how much do you think the old MBP will decrease? thanks in advance.

    Apple doesn't do price increases or decreases. The 15" and 17" will remain at their current prices. The old models will move into the refurbished section, and will be offered at similar prices to what you see there today.

    That is a very good question.
    Will they even still offer the old MBP?

    I highly doubt that there will be one. Why do you think that there will be?

    Well...on the Apple Refurb site I think the 2.2GHz was going for about $1,700 and the 2.4GHz (15") for $2,100. I don't think there will be a price increase at all.

    Haha, there's already this one: http://guides.macrumors.com/MacBook_Pro. People just need to read it! :^)

    CrackedButter, check out the prices in the link above. The 15" has been @ 2k since it debuted (with a 2.5k option), and the 17" has stayed at 2.8k. When/if a new-sized MBP debuts, it'll also get a sticking price. The Macbooks have also stayed at 1.1k, 1.3k, and 1.5k.

    Didn't the 24" iMac drop in price when they updated them?

    I'm looking for a price increase and not stability or drop.

    Yup, they just forked the 24" into a high- and low-end. Before: 2k. After: 1.8k and 2.3k. As the Macbook and Pro lines are already forked, it's unlikely Apple would decide to mix things there price-wise, beyond the addition of a model...

    I am responding to the earlier comment that they don't do either; increase or decrease.

    While obviously I doubt the MBP increase in price. It certainly is possible.

    I understand the vagueness of my reply to the post I quoted.

    I find it highly doubtful that Apple will increase the price.
