how many people think apple is becoming too "i" focused and also waits too long to update anything
Updating MBP now doesn't make any sense as the CPUs next MBPs should use are not available yet
We don't need updates on the MB/MBPs! Look at what apple states in their macbook description:
"The latest technologies in Mac OS X unleash the power of the fast dual-core Intel processor."
they use the latest processor technology, which for them is Core 2 duo .
On a serious note, yes, this year's update will be a lot late. And I hope they update both MBPs and the white at the same time, otherwise 1 of them will be "useless" compared to the other.
They're fine. We don't need a new laptop every 6 months.
Why produce an update if there's really nothing to update?
core 2 duo? come on...
The refresh cycles are much too long IMO assuming they never adjust the price as their costs drop. If prices dropped towards the middle to end of the cycle then value would remain a constant and the length of their product cycles would be fine with me. So for me it is less about the latest and greatest coming sooner rather than later, and more about relative value. So longer cycles means higher profits - great if I was a stock holder
Well, prices have gone down over the last couple of cycles (from cycle to cycle, not mid/late-cycle)...better than nothing.
What month will those particular Sandy Bridge parts become available?
Do you think we will see the MBP update at that time?
Dual core Sandy Bridges will be released on February 20th. After that day, MBP update can happen at any time. Early March would be my guess
Thanks. And good god you post fast!

Someone in another thread said tha 20th feb is the public release of the dual core sandy bridges, and that production of dual core SB laptops can begin earlier. Which means we can even see the new MBPs at 20th of february or sooner (i woudn't hope on that). Thing is, if the production hAd started sooner than the release date, wouldn't we have leaks/rumours about it?

It's quite obvious that the production of the dual core chips has begun months ago. 20th of Feb is the date when they will officially be released, meaning that resellers can start selling them and computers equipped with them on that day. All specs of the dual core chips are already available on Intel's site as Intel announced those CPUs on January 5th.
Unless Apple gets early access (which I highly doubt), we won't see Sandy Bridge MBPs before February 20th. Sure, Apple could announce them beforehand and state "ships in late Feb" but that is unApple-ish.
Yup. They don't want to lose any last minute last-gen buyers.
Its apple way of teasing....and everyone likes a tease
