    I know it's a long shot, but some people really do believe a revC MBA may surface a Tuesday before the conference .... and there is only two Tuesdays left, lol :)

    Considering I need a laptop sooner rather than later, I'd love this.

    Alas, it is well known that Apple will release the new laptop 15 days after I buy mine.

    Just PM me when you're planning to buy one. I'll be sure to stay clear of buying anything Apple that month! :}

    I'd say there is a decent chance. Wasn't there a rumor of the Edu discounts starting early like this week? Would be really sweet if they came out with updated MacBooks/Pro/Air and the edu discount at the same time and before WWDC, but who knows.

    I really don't expect apple to update any of the computer lines prior to WWDC and for the fact, I don't expect to see any updates to the computer lines during WWDC for that matter. The focus will be SL and the iPhone.

    if you look in the Buyers Guide according to history all the MacBook line is due for some kind of update ... minor perhaps, but something.

    Do you think they'll hold off and not update any of the MacBook line between now and the fall, Sept/Oct?

    I don't see this happening until August at the earliest. My guess is that WWDC is probably going to be all Snow Leopard and iPhone. :apple:

    I'm sure there won't be one this week but if there was it would be on wednesday not Tuesday since Monday was a holiday.

    I don't see what they could add. The thing gets very hot given the current processor speeds so an increase in speed means an increase in temps which means an increase in cooling abilities. Storage? Perhaps, but thats not really a big deal as far as features go. More RAM would be nice, I guess only time will tell.

    Epic facepalm. You come back to MR with the same arrogant attitude. Yet you still act like you know everything. Get a clue kid.

    There's TONS. Black bezel, glass trackpad, buttonless trackpad, higher processor, more RAM, new battery technology, etc.

    If there's something more I hate than arrogant people, it's arrogant people who think they know what they're talking about. At least normal arrogant people know something. You're a clueless fool who throws his opinion around like its law.

    Shut up, and tone down the attitude all the time. Ask a question without your ego spilling everywhere.

    If that were always true then all the MBPs would burn through your legs compaired to the PB G4.
    Iirc the new chips are the exact same wattage.

    Whooah, let's calm down. Tallest Skill is one of the best members here. You may disagree with his post, but there is no reason to attack him. I hate it when people attack me for my views about Macs. I never attack people when I say something negative about a certain Mac, yet I get hate messages, people calling me names, and worse. This is a forum. We are all here to have fun. We are not here to attack each other.

    While I don't agree with a lot some people write, it's just their opinion. It isn't fact or a personal attack against you.

    Want to make a point, just reply to his post with all of the positive things you see coming. When the rev C MBA is released with all of the things you mentioned, you will feel better about it. No attacking required. That will give credibility to your insights and will at least make you feel that you were right and he was wrong.

    Heck, I want all of these changes in an update, but I could be way off. Maybe Apple will leave the MBA in it's present state for two years like it did with the Mac mini. None of us really know for certain. It's all our hopes and wishes fueled by rumors and speculations.

    If it means anything to you, I hope you are right, but I wouldn't bet oagainst TS on anything either. He is right quite often.

    In the end, tone never gets across right over posts like this. You don't know if he is serious or messing with us all or what. It's a simple two second posts and should be taken lightly.

    Here's to a rev C MBA, and D, and E, and F, and...
