    I'm going to be in San Francisco on the 27th and I'm also looking to buy a new MBP once they come out, hopefully this week but I guess we'll see.

    I was wondering do they let non press people into the conference or do you need a pass of some sort? And if you do need a pass is it a waste of my time to go over there in the chaos or will it be worth it for just the experience?

    You have to get invited. It's beyond just being press.

    Ok.

    So do you think it's a waste of time to even go down there? Is there anything to do outside? Or anything to see?

    I'm going to be in the city anyways.

    I've never been to it, so I can't answer. But given how many other things there are to do in that wonderful city...

    I guess the best thing than being inside there is to log into Engadget and watch as things develop....

    I'd go there, see the line. Spaz out at how awesome it is.

    ...and then read the Engadget liveblog while you think that this is happening just a couple hundred feet away.

    That actually sounds pretty cool... in my lame opinion :D

    Yea that's kinda what I'm thinking just go to be there, and see all the madness. I still think it will be cool to just be there. I guess I was just wondering if there were things that would be going on outside.

    Then you could tell everyone that you were there when Steve Jobs announced the most revolutionary thing in the world.

    Color me skeptical, but I care far more about an updated MBP (Apple's bread and butter over the past few years) than I do about a tablet (historically a hard sell)...

    Very curious to see how Apple spins this.

    If you're going to San Francisco
    Be sure to look at new apples on that show
    If you're going to San Francisco
    You're gonna meet that brand new macbook pro

    For those who come to San Francisco
    Apple time will be a love-in there
    In the streets of San Francisco
    Gentle people with macbooks on their laps

    All across the nation such a strange vibration
    People in motion
    There's a whole new generation of macs with expectation
    People in motion, people in motion

    For those who come to San Francisco
    Be sure to look at those cool Macbook Pros
    If you come to San Francisco
    Apple time will be a loving show

    If you come to San Francisco
    Apple time will be a loving show



    I had nothing to do :) I am really waiting for that 27th!

    You have to purchase a pass. You're correct; the even will be chaotic.

    Habitus :apple:

    can anyone post a link to a live web stream or at least a semi-live commentary that will be available tomorrow? I can readily find one on Google! Thanks!
