    New MBP will use sandy bridge i5 as rumored. However, Intel has NOT released SB i5 until NOW, though they declared SB i5 would be released on Feb 20th.

    Do you guys still think it is possible for apple to release the new i5 powered MBP before Intel officially introducing new i5. At least, I cannot believe it.

    intel released sb for customers. Noone really knows when Apple got ahold of sb. I'm sure they got it earlier that us normal ppl.

    Its possible because Apple could get the rights to it much earlier than expected. Also it might be available for order on thursday with maybe higher end versions available right away at the apple store with the i5 sandy bridge becoming 5-7 day shipping.

    But, judging from past, all laptop vendors tend to release products with new cpu after Intel formally introducing them.

    I'm not sure when but I believe Apple has released an intel product (I think it was the core duos) early before any other vendors.

    Uh, there are already SB laptops available now, and seeing as they are being shipped around the world as I write this, I'd be surprised if they weren't released on Thursday. I'm pretty sure Apple will have no problem getting SB's early.

    The processor in the original MacBook Air was one of these.
