    So I was looking at release dates of new MBP revisions for past 2 years and it look like last FIVE revisions came nearly exactly 8 months apart. Do you guys think that makes it HIGHLY likely that new one will come out exactly in Feb 2010?

    10/2008
    - $1999. 15.4" Glossy Display, 2.4GHz, 2GB RAM, NVIDIA 9400M + 9600M, 250GB HD.
    - $2499. 15.4" Glossy Display, 2.53GHz, 4GB RAM, NVIDIA 9400M + 9600M, 320GB HD.

    06/2009
    - $1699. 2.53 GHz, 4 GB RAM. NVIDIA GeForce 9400M, 250GB HD. Firewire.
    - $1999. 2.66 GHz, 4 GB RAM. NVIDIA GeForce GT. 320GB HD. Firewire.
    - $2299. 2.8 GHz, 4 GB RAM. NVIDIA GeForce GT . 500 GB HD. Firewire.
    - - - - - - - - - - -- - -

    So looking at above changes, would it be reasonable to assume that new pricing and config will be- $1400 for new base model featuring 2.66Ghz processor? Based on 6/09 revision became $300 cheaper and moved speed up. Or would $1400 price point be too low for Apple?

    At this point it is just too hard to tell, with the arrival of Arrandale next month (hopefully), there should definitely be some motion in the Apple camp, but I have heard that Apple is in talks with Intel about having Intel create a chip that can be used with nVidia graphics solutions in their notebooks. This really means that the next real launch of a new MBP could be from January to June, so really what I am saying is that we just don't know.

    And not to be a prick or anything but there are at least 4 other active threads that talk about the next release date of new MBP's and they all say the same thing...

    There are multiple threads regarding this topic posted everyday. There are even threads about this on the first page of the MBP forum. Bottom line, updated MBPs are coming, but no one knows when they will be announced. However, don't get your hopes up for a $300 price drop. That's just not happening again.

    That is complete and utter nonsense. Technically so difficult that it can be considered impossible. Even if Apple bought Intel half a year ago this would not happen.
    This rumor was created by someone who had no idea what he was talking about.
    A dedicated GPU from AMD or Nvidia is the single and only way they can go and they don't need Intel for this.

    I also do not believe there will be anymore price cuts. Prices will stay the same.
