    So this thread can be used for all those last minute observations before we think our long awaited update will announced. Hopefully this thread will only last till Tuesday!

    I'v been checking the apple.com website it is still up :(

    A lot of people are starting to think the March release date will be it!

    Not a snowball's chance in hell...

    MacBook Pro's are too prestigious for a simple random Tuesday update, especially for the type of update they are about to receive. I highly agree that there must be some small product event coming March...

    Or.... the one that I believe that will really push a new MBP is the NAB 2008, April 15th (Tuesday).


    Good luck.

    Better come out or I'll be angryyyyy :mad: < like that, except green and more Hulk-like ...

    Seriously though, have the money ready and all. Just need the MBP itself... Really hoping that an update will come tomorrow :(

    I say just freakin' update the darn MBP so I can get on with my life!!! I'm a busy college student that has too much on his plate at the current moment so the faster these updates come, the faster I can get back to doing homework and the less money I have in my pocket. Is that so much to ask?

    If it is going to be announced tomorrow, don't you think macrumors.com would have a bit more to give us?

    Did they say much directly prior to the updated Mac Pros being released? Seemed to come out of nowhere..



    EDIT: ^ beat me to it :p

    Apart from their first introduction - when have the MBP's had anything other than just a tuesday website update? CD to C2D to C2D SR. Little to no fanfair on each occasion really.

    That would invoke missing an entire Intel product cycle - and a 12 month gap between updates to MBP's ( adding an extra option is not an update ). That would be unusual and frankly, a bit stupid.

    Now - the MP's went a long time without an update, but there wasn't anything to update them with until Penryn. The MBP's have a refresh of hardware ready and waiting.

    Depends where you are located ;) When the store got updated for the pink Nano and Mac Pros, it was already up by the time I awoke. Seems like they update in the early morning, west-coast Pacific time.. Someone mentioned 5 AM PST in another thread.

    i think its like 4am there now, so if they update at 5am it should be an hour before we know, in UK its around 1pm so another 4 hour here .....America update will be first so cross everything for it to be today

    It's 4am EST / 1AM PST (Where Apple is)

    I doubt they would post them this early. Another 5 hours and we'll see...

    I think what we should all do right now is:

    'Accept there is going to be no update today and just move on with our lives and to stop expecting something every Tuesday'

    So hard to put in practice but I think we are all going to be disappointed today and no use being positive about it being announced because then we will be even more depressed after no announcement!
