    Apple's last Mac Mini and Macbook refreshes were both launched in the online store at 4am EST or 9am GMT for us Brits out there. I imagine they'll keep with that trend and launch the new MBP's around that time.

    So is there any site I could buy one tomorrow and not pay tax? I see some talking about Amazon not getting them for a few weeks. Guessing it would be the same with MacMall and any other site? Or I guess the best way to ask is there anywhere else online to buy one tomorrow besides apple.com or BM store?

    Sorry to burst your bubble, but Apple updates usually occur around 9am EST on the East Coast of North America. Not in the middle of the night.

    I'm arriving at the Apple Store in Regent Street tomorrow morning at 9am sharp, armed with a massive sack of cash (about 2 grand in bank notes):apple:

    Looks like tonight is going to be filled coffee and Dexter reruns.

    I will laugh when they update at 9AM EST and all of us who stayed up have fallen asleep!


    I'll be waiting for you. Please, no dye-packs.

    That's sounds more sensible to me.

    what time does the apple store generally go down when there's a new product launch, shouldn't it be down right now?

    1 PM EST sounds more reasonable. Intel still has to make their announcement. Not gonna let apple steal their thunder.

    Which is also a possibility. That would mean were still another ~15 hours from reveal. So if you stay up all night, your a fool.

    Although I don't really think Apple will need to wait. I can already see it, a video with Bob Mansfield talking about this new tech and Apple engineers and blah blah etc.

    Uh, the Mac Mini release was a complete re-design, that's a lot bigger than a movement to Arrandale for the Macbook Pros.

    Looks like we're both wrong because they don't 'usually' do either. However, their two most recent updates have occured at 4AM EST. Take that as you will.

    sorry to break it to you...

    the new Macbooks are not gonna quench your thirst. They're not gonna be that exciting and it's all a huge anti-climax:mad:

    If this is true, the fact that he would even admit that is sad. And hilarious.

    This thread will make me get out of bed in the morning without hitting snooze 5 times just because of a chance that it will be out by the time I wake up. :D

    if they add a small sdd for os, sb, and lightpeak, then it will defiantly quench my thirst, infact, i might drown in all the glory.
