It's going to be July 24th: 1) Intel drops its processor (at least, desktop processor) prices on the 22nd. -UPDATE- or one of the newly announced chips !!!! 2) $100 off your printer with a mac deal ends the 23rd. 3) Discount on .Mac promo ends the 23rd. 4) Best buy coupon off iPods deal ends the 23rd. 5) There is sufficient time after iPhone to prevent interference. 6) There is sufficient time before school to get back to school sales. 7) Several of s products will have newly set records for longest time between updates by then, particularly the iMac (which means we're getting something good; the previous record for iMac was set before they introduced the G5 iMac) and the Mac Mini. 8) Several stores are running out of products. 9) It won't interfere with Leopard; either will force consumers to pay for both, have a discount on a later Leopard purchase as they've done before, or release Leopard early (suprise!). And lastly.... 10) July 24th is a Tuesday. usually releases on Tuesday or Wednesday. It will happen. July 24th. It is coming.
