So go buy something used, locally, and and resell for nearly as much as you paid when the release does finally happen. If I find a recent 13" for sale on CL this week, I'm buying it, throwing in my hard drive, and continuing the wait.
haha, same. As soon as i get home i go to apple.com and hope i seen anything other than the iPad on the front pageI'm going to guess that the iPhone firmware update is apples release for the day. Boooo! My heart nearly stopped when I miss read the "mac pro" refresh article.
From the previous thread, reply to post 6277modular said:not sure this trend correlates with each other. you're just looking at 12 months of apple updates.0eyvind said:I don't want to believe this, but it makes sence.
However I would like to point out that there are only 3 full update cycles in two years:
October '08 - June '09 - Feb '10. 3 full update cycles in two years.
Good catch though
Lets look at the long term trends on the macbook redesign:
1998: powerbook g3 (wallstreet)
2001: powerbook g4 (tibook)
2004: powerbook g4 (aluminum)
2008: macbook pro (unibody)
so we're looking at 3 design changes in 10 years. average design change every 40 months as opposed to your 24 months.
If ANYBODY had information on EOL of the current gen, we'd know, and we'd have a pretty clear idea of when we'll be getting an update.I'm curious if any Best Buy employees have any new information on the EOL for the MBP's considering nearly all stores are sold out across Michigan and the 17 inch isn't even listed on the website anymore.
Yea, I'm starting to think if I'd bought mine at christmas the extra months use would've been worth not getting the latest model. But now it too close (yet so far ) to justify buying a current model.I heard that once this thread reaches the size of the last one, then if you combine them then the resulting singularity will signify the introduction of the new macbooks pros :O.
I could have had mine in time for Christmas and I'd have had some nice use out of it and been productive instead of watching this forum...
