I finally gave up this rumor and apple product chasing and just ordered a Blackbook off amazon and 4gb of ram from newegg, scheduled to arrive on the 26. I figure with amazon's 30 day return policy, as long as the new MBP comes out in the next month, I'll be all set to return this to amazon and upgrade. If not, then I'll just mail in the rebate and get back $100. I opted not to get the Applecare warranty because my American Express card will extend Apple's original warranty for an additional year. So while all of you are going to be sitting around crying next Tuesday because nothing will happen, I'm going to be playing with my new blackbook!!
