    Everyone keeps saying February 3rd but I have yet to see this date anywhere except for this forum. I haven't even seen it on the MR main page. Is this official or was it just a guess?

    Its most likely to arrive in store on a Tuesday, as with Apple tradition, but since the Macworld revelations noone can say for sure. Surely someone here must know something though, I cant wait to get my hands on one again.

    Belfast doesn't have them yet either, they have no idea when they're due in, they're going by the 7-10 days from the website :s

    Couldn't care less about the Yankees, baseball is the worst sport in existence IMO. Lived right outside of Boston last year for 4 months or so and it seems like baseball is the only thing people care about up there. As soon as someone found out I was from NY, baseball immediately came up. I've never watched a full game of baseball in my life, it's just way too boring.

    How about that superbowl last year though eh? :p

    Spoke to the Manager of the one by me. He said Apple might be releasing the new 17" into the stores over the weekend but they weren't sure of the exact date. He said it might be this weekend. But probably not cause they usually would of gotten the laptops and marketing material in by now. So he said it is probably going to be the weekend of the 13th.

    Just letting everyone know what the horses mouth said. He seemed pretty knowledgeable about it.

    regent street had already started advertising the new 17 inch model with the price and listing it on a large comparison chart etc with the other macbooks and macbook pros, this was about 2 weeks ago friday though. hopefully this week eh?

    ill keep ringing and let people know on here.

    p.s. if they are to be launched at the same time globally i.e the same calender date, wouldn't that mean places like australia should have them in stores first; with the time difference and all?
