    So based on this:http://news.cnet.com/8301-31021_3-20019463-260.html
    When would new Mbp be abailabe after announcing them? I bought a mbp 6 days ago and I wanna know if I should return it for the new line of mbp.
    What's apples return policy?
    On previos announcements, how long does it take for their new products to hit shelves

    There is no guarantee that new hardware is going to be released, so the choice is up to you. I think you have 14 days to return, but I could be wrong.

    Sometimes new hardware ships immediately, other times you have to wait.
    If it were me I would just be happy with what I have got, its a fool's game trying to keep up with technology.

    I guess so. I'll have 4 days to return after the announcement if it is a 14 return policy

    Just call apple and ask if how long is their return policy. If they ask why, tell them you are not satisfied with the MBP and thats it. If you have 14 days to return it, just wait for the event and return it if you want to get something else.

    I think there is a 10% restocking fee. I would just keep what you have, unless the new upgrade is worth that.

    what don't you like about your current mbp? do you really need something better than the current i7 and 8gb of ram? Unless they drop ssd prices in half, upgrade the graphics card or remove the superdrive for another harddrive slot, there is no reason you shouldnt be happy with what you have.

    I got a 13" lmao so it's using core dual processors so if I can upgrade to an I3 or even go for a 15" it'll be worth it

    im in the same boat man, my macbook came in yesterday morning, i hurried and opened it...then i got on macrumors and saw the announcement. fml.

    i'd just wait and see what the new mbp is, if any...also another thing to consider, assuming there is a new mbp, the current ones will drop in price, and there is a 14 day price match as well.

    If you're within your 14-day return window when a new machine is announced, and you don't want to return it, you're still eligible for a refund if your model dropped in price. Most of the time when new generations come out, Apple drops the price of the previous generation.

    anyone think they will update the MBP's with USB 3.0? Thats about the only thing that I could think of that I would like in my new MBP. Mine as is right now is blazing fast! (15" i7 8gb 500gb AG)

    No USB 3.0. Unless they get Sandy Bridge really, really early.

    I read some speculation in Information Week that a hybrid drive (SSD + HDD) might be available for the MBP at the announcement.

    Blame the people who would buy a product "for the lulz" or buy it fully intentioned to bring it back after it had been used. Among a slew of other things.

    i agree they have to accept some personal responsibility that they didn't do research before buying.

    Especially when it's members from MacRumors. We have a buyers guide FFS! :D

    To be honest that's exactly why I waited alittle longer. You don't know what Apple has in store but a new OS was bound to come shortly. Even early 2011 isn't really a long wait.

    Let's hope they decide to stream next Wednesday!

    The same thing happened to me during the last refresh in the spring. I refresh came out 12 days after I bought the 13 inch MBP. My local apple store said they usually wave the 14 day policy when there is a refresh, usually allow 28 days with no restock when a new one comes out. Call an apple store and check it out
