    Could this not have gone in one of the half-dozen threads in which we also know absolutely nothing about the update? :confused:

    It's not a Tuesday. ;)

    The 20th is though, that year, and that's my birthday, so that's cool. :D

    And yes, I did click through iCal to see if it was a Tuesday or not.

    No, it's just an impossible date this year.

    April (All Fool's) Day. You're off your game today, I think. :D;)

    Also, it's Apple's birthday.

    I'm hoping the update comes this Tuesday. It is my last day to return my new iMac.

    Anytime after June is good for me. :cool:
    Otherwise, I haven't got a clue when an update is coming, I was surprised nothing was announced that MacWorld.

    Never! Muhuhahah!

    Seriously though, I hope sometime in 2009. Concurrent with Snow Leopard's release would be the bee's knees. That way, people who bought new iMacs would have spinning heads from all the new-ness.

    If we're throwing out guesses, I say Feb 17, with Mac Minis being updated Feb 3, that puts Apple releasing an updated Mac every other Tuesday this year so far, perhaps March 3 for Mac Pro? (asking Tallest Skil) I don't know if the new processors will be available then or not.

    I'm looking forward to much head spinning when I order my new iMac (with Snow Leopard) and an iPod Touch ;)

    I bet I pass out for at least an hour!

    Has anyone else noticed (from looking at the buyers guide) since 2003 the iMac updates have come 9 months apart at most and they were last updated about 9 months ago, what do you guys think coming soon or are they going to make this one of the longest times between updates?

    here's my guess/hope at a time line

    Jan 6th: 17" MacBook Pro refresh
    Jan 20th: white MacBook update
    Feb 3rd: Mac Mini refresh
    Feb 17th: iMac update
    Mar 3rd: Mac Pro update
    Mar 17th: Cinema Display refresh

    for Christmas Apple is giving us 3 months of updates....I wish, shut up let me be optimistic :p

    lol, I figure all the laptop updates are done with now, which took from Oct 14th-Jan 20th, they should give us 3 months of desktop updates now. However I realize what they should do is probably not what they're going to do so I'm just throwing what I hope to happen out there, but if I'm right someone owes me a $1.

    I'll mail you 100 pennies if you're right.
    I hope that they don't do all that in the next three months, if they do then there's not much more to release at WWDC.
