So are they just "announcing" new MBP or are they actually "releasing" them tomorrow?

    We probably would have seen leaks by now if they were going to be in stores tomorrow, but you never know. We'll find out tomorrow.

    Announcing. I doubt they'll be available tomorrow.

    They are announcing now but there will be no ETA on when they are released.

    Who knows. My heart says available tomorrow but my brain says 2 to 3 weeks.

    What has me worried is at the end of the presentation they'll say available in early 2017. :(

    Yes, usually 1-2 weeks; so we will see. The only substantial wait I can remember is way back when they announced the original MBP at macworld 2006.

    That was because it was a new laptop line using the Intel Processors, IIRC. 1-2 weeks is fine. It gives them to hand out test units to trustworthy press and have them review it and give them notes on their experience. It also gives Apple a chance to squash any minor bugs that may appear.

    Wouldn't it be the worst if they just said, "Available this Winter."

    Are there any rumors on how much storage space they are going to have? Is 2TB or more likely?

    That is not apple style. They are smart enough to know people have a short attention span. So when they announce new products they usually come out in 1-2 weeks tops.

    Releasing a new product until 2017 will hurt sales. Because anybody that is planning to buy a Labtop will just wait. Killing any kind of current sales

    But the new MacOS for this devices is just out a few days. The Question is: How many Macbooks can be installed in this time? I think there will be a small amount of devices for the first orders. The others will be installed just in time of packaging. The question is: How is this working? Target Disk Mode over USB-C?

    2 TB will be offered and will be the top storage configuration.

    That's the hope in all honesty.

    I was thinking a Friday release....but maybe they will release them on Today. That would be weird though as the rest of the world wouldn't get access to theirs until tomorrow. So my guess is Friday.

    Also, the online store has gone offline. I'm sure that this means that you will be able to order at least something new.

    A few days to a few weeks depending on supply constraints.

    When it's the iPhone stuff... all they add is the marketing materials. Then a few days later they allow for orders.
