    Does anyone know if the chips are still delayed? Sony and Dell both had a "shipping" date with the penryn chips set for today (2/18/2008) but have changed the date to 3/11/2008 (Sony) and 3/18/2008 (Dell)

    Any thoughts?

    I'm still hoping for an updated MBP on the 26th but realize I more than likely wont see it :( ... instead it'll prob. be a "Now Shipping!" for Time Machine...or the iTOASTER ;) (Beat him to it)

    Expect shortages around processor launch. Intel provides the information on their products months in advance.

    I guess you weren't around for the Merom launch.

    When I went to Dell's website it told me a ship date of February 26th.

    Yeah how was the Merom launch? Anything like the Penryn update? How long did it take Apple to update MBPs/MB after they were released by Intel?

    Also, what the f is the "iToaster"?

    Well you whipper snappers might not know but back at the Merom launch laptops were delayed well into September 2006. Take note the launch was July 27th.
