    The Apple site was down globally for quite a while. I was really hoping this was the Mac Pro Update. I'm new to this, does this mean no update today. Or is there still a small glimmer of hope at 1pm EST?:(

    Precisely. My G4 is officially not good enough for photo-editing.

    Now please, please can I have a new one?

    Exactly!

    What good would a $2000 machine be if no good software were updated and released to take advantage of it?

    Sure Safari and iTunes will run better on a newer machine, but then again, you shouldn't need a MacBook Pro for those tasks if thats all you want.

    I'm not saying I'm not looking forward to the updates, but outdated equipment? HAHAHAHA you do realize it has only been a year for 17 in and like 8 months for the 13 and 15 in right?? Thats not old, you just cant wait for new stuff so now you put down the current model. :rolleyes:

    Anybody else think dropping the store for so long is part marketing ploy in order for a final push to shift current stock.

    It got peoples hopes up then turned into a huge let down, those disappointed people might just bite the bullet and buy now.

    yeah but that doesn't mean that Core2Duos are the newest ones, Core i3's, i5's and i7's got released before that, so it's just a bit old for a 2000$ computer

    I hear what you are saying, but I am buying my son his first macbook for his first year in college. I have some time to get it, but I will definitely not pay money for something that will be outdated as soon as I get it.

    Or they buy something else entirely, because they're sick of waiting. Who knows.

    Bite the bullet and click buy now?
    No. I will just get 100% disappointed and lost all faith to Apple and give up their product for entire life.

    Buy something else out of spite? Maybe buy something to tie you over but if the thought of getting a Mac has entered your mind, your eventually going to get one.

    Daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaang!

    So now we have to wait another week thinking 'what if'? This reminds me of 2006 when I waited 5 months for a iMac refresh. I was glad I did then, and I know I'll be glad I did when these i7's come out.

    I just can't justify buying a C2D for $2700.

    And next tuesday hundreds of more threads will be posted with anticipation, what's coming next, this happens every year lol

    Come on guys there is much more to life than some updated bits of hardware regardless of how nice they are!

    Chill ;)
