    I bought a new MBP earlier in the week online... I think it will arrive on Monday. My question is should I open it right away or wait until Tuesday to open it. Because if I open it on Monday, and new MBPs get released Tuesday, if I return it, I will have to pay a restocking fee as opposed to keeping it in the box.

    You are answering yourself, just wait until tuesday, that it's not SURE that new MBP are going to launch, but you can assure and don't spend more money than needed.

    Well, last time I spoke to a rep, she told me that you have two weeks from when you get your new MBP to get a full refund. However, if you open the box, you have to pay a 10% restocking fee.

    You already bought the computer... just open the box. The new MBPs won't be leaps and bounds better than the old ones... just incremental improvements. Don't torture yourself! :D

    wow, what great advice!:rolleyes:

    If you need the MBP for something really important on Monday by all means open it and use it. If you don't then simply wait a day and see what the situation is. It is not torture to wait a day or a week or a month for a mac.

    Obviously you think you can wait anyway because otherwise it wouldn't be possible to ship the old MBP back and wait for the new one to arrive. Wait.

    I don't see anything happening on Tuesday anyway. Apple's focus is on the iPad now.

    Agreed. No MBP update before iPad(s) have been launched.

    The extra day will allow me extra time to get my bootcamp and parallels setup working. This will be my first mac.

    I suggest spending the time to get acclimated to OS X, rather than installing Windows. If you force yourself to use OS X for a while, it'll be easier to break the "Windows dependency".

    I Just Purchased a 2.53 Mini. Due to Arrive Thursday. I'd be Pleasantly surprised if new Ones came out Tuesday,But I got tired of waiting and thought a mini Update Unlikely, although they have been showing that HDMI Mini.

    I know some OS X stuff, and I'll probably use it as my main OS. I will have Windows for Windows only applications--and also for the sake of doing it to add to my skillset.
