    I'm desperately trying to hold out on buying a i7 1.8ghz MacBook air in hopes of getting the new slimmed down 15" MacBook Pro that may or may not have a retina display as well...but MAN! This waiting is killing me! I've already held off for 3 weeks.

    I've been hoping that the dwindling supply of 15" MacBook pros at 3rd party locations has been an indication that the new ones will be out shortly, but then I read reports that it may not be released until May or June and I about have a heart attack!...and yes I'm aware I'm not a very patient person.

    When does everyone "think" that the new ones will be released? Soon or closer to June?

    Rumors point to April 24th! Even though I'm planning on getting the 13 inch pro, the wait for the 15 inch is killing me too! Because I know if the 15 inch gets a retina display, I will too! :D Thats the big thing for me!

    Everyone is saying the 24th but that is the same date as the earnings call. I don't think that's the date. It is obviously pretty soon, but I'd probably say early May rather than late April.

    Oh man me too. I'm probably going to get the base line 13 inch macbook pro... but if the 15 inch comes out and is super awesome and worth 700 more bucks I might get it. However, if it doesn't come out by the middle of May I will probably jump the gun and go ahead and get the current macbook pro 13 inch.

    I got my ipad 2 a month before the ipad 3 came out, and I'm trying to not do that with my future macbook pro. :D

    It's better to wait till June for two reasons rather just one. There will be updates to both MBA and MBP. The 22nm Ivy Bridge CPUs will be a killer upgrade for the MBAs, more battery life with more speed. You're buying it to keep it for at least a year or two, right? You can wait 2-3 more months to get a better bang for your bucks.

    Two-three months ago, I'd say buy the MBA 11" but you're too far down the end of the cycle right now, that it's just not a good idea to buy either one.

    Earnings Report Conference Call is on the 24th and apparently Apple doesn't announce new products before leading up to or on the day of the Earnings call. I personally don't know if this is true but that's what others are saying on this forum. I just hope it's announced within the next month :D

    Does best buy give you 30 days on laptops? If so, you can buy the 13 and cross your fingers that the 15 refresh comes out within 30 days.

    Actually as a Best Buy Silver member I can return anything within 45 days but I dunno if I feel right doing that...

    Anyways things are indeed quiet today...last I heard the ivy bridge processors were going to be released on the 23rd with a new MacBook possibly being released on the 24th...so I'm hoping for that right now...

    The wait is a mild annoyance for me. Mainly because having experienced life outside of the bedroom I realised waiting for a small upgrade to a laptop won't kill me.

    People sure are different. My life inside the bedroom is making my wait tolerable.
