    I just sold my Mac, so now I concluded to myself that MBPr is better than the Air for my reasons (was really close to buying MBA, but I had a fight with myself, don't know if I should rethink or not). So anyway, I just have my old iMac for use, I don't really want to wait until after October. So if it is most likely releasing during late fall or after fall, I might as well just get the Air.
    Do you also think that the MBP/r 13in will have 16gb ram?

    The general expectation right now is that if nothing happens on July 23/24, then it will be October.

    Since they also release the Mac Pro and iPhone 5S on September, wouldn't the Haswell MBP be refreshed at September, too?

    This.

    There will be a quarterly conference call for Apple on the 23rd which has, in the past, been known for some silent updates to the MBP line. If nothing gets released then then the general consensus will be with the release of the new Mac Pro & OS Mavericks sometime in October.

    Release it after the earnings call so as not to anger the SEC or perhaps investors

    Yup, the Apple Store was amazing there. They didn't replace the display, but just gave me a laptop (Edit: A new one). So i just listed it as a new laptop with the charger for 100$ less then the price. I really dislike a 15in laptop (my first time I had one), even though it was a wonderful computer, the size ruined it for me.

    To answer your other question; the 16gb ram option may be a bit too much to hope for at this stage in the game.

    But now, there is only 1 option of ram (8 gigs), so i figure they're going to use the space under the trackpad (where they were going to put the fusion drive) to store more stuff and ram?

    I reckon it'll be before kids go back to school, well that's what most likely will happen. I'm ready to buy the new macbook pro I've already set 2,5k aside for it.

    OP, you're asking people who aren't experts to speculate on something they do not know. We all know as much as you do about a possible release period.
