    I was just wondering if Apple is going to release new MBP's in July at WWDC. They usually follow a pattern that I figured out from

    Here it is:-

    Intro date:-Feb, Discontinue-October
    Intro-October, Discontinue-June
    Intro-June, Discontinue-Feb

    With the current MBP's we seem to be in the second cycle(October-June).

    I am asking because when Apple releases new MBP'S with processor bumps the previous models are available for an amazing deal at Amazon for $1549(base model with rebates) and at the Apple Refurb store.

    So any predictions people?

    Upgrading to what? What exists?

    The next update worth caring about is Arrandale in 2010.

    Even then, it will only be marginally better than the current machines for most end users.

    The reason I am asking is because I am in the market for a MBP and can wait for Apple to update the MBP so I can buy the current gen model which will then become previous gen and thus cheaper.

    There may be some speed bumps but there won't be a completely new model. jpoon is right

    Speed bumps is all I need to buy the current gen which will be discounted.

    Very true and you should get some good deals on a refurb :)

    New York. The state, not the toilet.
    There just was "speed bumps", when the iMac update was announced. The older versions are now in the refurb section.

    133 MHz faster Penryn CPUs soon.

    In CPU terms, yes. But as we've seen with the iMacs, a mediocre CPU bump can be in the same update as a good other component (RAM, HD) bump.

    I am pretty sure we will see some processor bumps soon across the MB Aluminum board. As for major upgrades we are definitely going to have to wait until the end of the year.....
