    I got my credit card ready and will be at the Apple Store tomorrow (sometime after 1:30p).

    I plan on picking up the new 13" MBP (if there is a pro or not)

    I might pick up a 13" or 15" tomorrow (depending on the features).

    I am planning on buying for sure if I can get a quad core 15"... I will settle for the 17" if it is the only way I can get a quad. If there is no quad core I may wait it out a little longer. (The applications I use on a day to day basis run much better with multiple cores.) I am adverse to spending 2 to 3k for a non quad core computer. And no I don't want a linux, microsoft, or hackintosh laptop.

    from rumors/pictures

    didn't like:
    redesign scheduled for 2012 - was hoping this refresh was
    - also no new color (black)
    no ssd - not even the OS dedicated was mentioned

    liked:
    i5 processor standard for 13"? - could make up a little ground with intels integrated gpu
    lightpeak/thunderbolt - we'll see what this brings

    all in all, i'm starting to lean to now waiting for the MacBook Air Sandy Bridge and it'd be cool if they added LightPeak to the MBA too.

    I'm trying to keep my hopes up and pray that the higher end 13" a) won't cost like 300/400 bucks more b) has a nice GPU

    Even if I don't get the higher end 13", I'll still likely get one because it will be my first Mac :)

    15" for sure, barring some unforeseen dealbreaker

    I'm now considering buying a MBA 13" instead. I was really hoping for a 13" without SuperDrive but with Sandy Bridge, SDD and matte screen.

    If we'd only know how soon the MBAs will be upgraded to Sandy Bridge.

    Realistically....

    What are the odds that any Apple retail store will actually have any of these things for sale TOMORROW? I say almost none. Even if they have some, does anyone have any idea what the inventory levels might be based on previous releases? 10? 20? 100?

    I think online will be the best bet. When do we think the website will open up???

    I don't know about you guys, but I'm just ready for this journey to be over with. Never before have I waited so long for a product. Never again will I repeat that mistake.

    Almost positive all the stores will have them in stock tomorrow. There have been pictures and confirmation of pallets arriving.

    Availability

    Just posted this on another thread:

    They always have them at the applestore right after the official announcement. I know, because I typically upgrade every year. Last year I was able to pick up the 17" i7 matte without doing a built to order. Only 1 store out of 5 in my area had the matte. Also, they didn't have the new ones on display because it was so new. Hope this helps and good luck tomorrow.

    If there is a quad 17", I'm definitely going to pick that up and probably sell my mac pro.

    Well, I intend to buy a high-end 15". The last I used a Mac was six years ago, heh. Hopefully, it is a somewhat decent improvement over the previous generation.

    I probably should wait for the Back to School event, but assuming it is the usual get a free iPod Touch, then I can sacrifice that for the benefit of getting the Macbook Pro now.

    Pretty sure they'll have them in stock. I was able to get the last two revisions on release date.

    So do I have to show up ridiculously early??? I live over an hour away from the store. I'll be so ticked if I waste my time for nothing! ;)

    I am! I've been waiting about a month to buy a 13''. Hopefully my nearest Apple has them in stock. Ordering from apple.com would mean I'd have to wait even longer lol
