    I am planning on getting a new macbook, but are they going to be released this tuesday? if so, around what time? and please say something constructive, not just "you can't wait?".
    Thanks in advance

    The event is at 10 am PST so it really depends if they are going to be released the same day

    Im on the east coast, so if they are released that day, would they be released like 1-2ish (based on prior releases)?

    This is the reason I dont post on here a lot. In the same amount of time you had said this, you could of answered my question and this topic would be over and sink to the bottom.

    All we know is that Apple Notebooks will be talked about at 10am Pacific time on October 14th. They may or may not be released on that day.

    I just asked if anyone knew off of the top of their heads if based on prior releases if the computers are available the same day. Nowhere in there did i ask anyone to do research (and when i did, i found very little info)

    So it's easier + faster to type a whole new thread and wait for responses than to search? As I first stated I don't want to be rude but I'm just encouraging others to follow the forum rules.

    It is highly likely they will be released today; at the very least, what they intend to offer by way of upgrade will probably be discussed later today.

    Re exact time, I have no idea whatsoever, although but NintendoChick suggests (probably correctly) that 10am Pacific Time (USA) is the time.

    However, my advice, for what it is worth is to wait, even allowing for discussions and upgrades. Inevitably, there will be glitches and other troublesome niggles which will take some time to be addressed and fixed. Wait for that to happen. In the meantime, examine the new models, rwad reviews, and , if that doesn't appeal, go for a refurb, which come with generous discounts and the Apple warranty.
    Cheers

    well, based on the rumors going on right now, there's a chance that they won't be released today. now, i really hope that they are released, since they are having this event and all. we shall see in 6 hours

    Plan to be at an Apple store at the time of the event. They will likely have a few of the new machines, although not always every new configuration.
