Before ripping me this is not the average when is i5, i7 coming.... LOL My Macbook Pro Late 2008 is being replaced for a current model 2.66ghz Macbook Pro. It got shipped Monday 2/1/10 and is due for delivery tomorrow 2/4/10. It was shipped directly from SHANGHAI China. I do know this is normal but the point I am bringing up is if they shipped it directly from the Factory in China that would lend to suggest they are still manufacturing them in China in the current configuration. Would we expect them to cease production of the old ones in China before the release.. Obviously they need stock on hand to fulfill the orders if a silent update is done and if they are still manufacturing current models they have nothing ready for the new models... With that info I would say no update anytime soon... Just my 2 cents!!
