    By any chance do you think Apple will release the new macbook pro (redesign) by this October/ November? ( I checked the buyers guide, usually the cycle is for about 230 days and I guess last time the new design was launched in October so). If not Oct,then when? January?

    Many thanks in advance.

    Highly doubt it. The redesign and refresh will come Q1 or Q2 of 2012 when Intel releases their low power Ivy Bridge processors. If you recall last year the Oct MBP refresh was just a spec bump from 2.66 to 2.8 on the i7.

    Why not?

    If you look at buyersguide:

    02/2008 -> just spec update

    10/2008 -> redesign

    I think, now we are in the same situation. Why they shouldnt prepare the redesign for October and then probably Q1 of 2012 implement the new Ivy Bridge. So they can sell their macbooks twice....

    It'd def be good for holiday sales but other than that it seems kinda rushed. They're already pumping out new Mac pros, Mac minis, and MacBook airs, next week.

    No.

    They seem most likely to be launched early next year when Ivy Bridge is released by Intel.

    Not until Ivy Bridge comes out from Intel, but exactly what might happen is anyone's guess. I wouldn't see one before Q1 2012.

    Same here. I want them to get rid of the optical drive. And yeah, this will probably happen in the beginning of 2012 because of IvyBridge.

    They might, but it would most likely be a small spec bump. Nothing to fret about. :)

    That's the problem with Apple, I'm holding off getting a MBP and an iPod Touch, it will be worth it though :p

    I think that's the problem with just about anyone, frankly. The tech world is constantly moving. Buy something and enjoy it! ;)
