    Is there any precedent for it? Having not announced anything at the Keynote or via press release on the day of the Keynote but then have a so called silent update on release day?

    Just hoping against hope.

    It has been done before yes. The do it somewhat often for spec-bump-only updates actually. But why are you zeroed in on THIS Thursday? For the 40th anniversary? I wouldn't get my hopes up for that.

    I doubt we'll see anything this Thursday, but instead by the end of April. According to 9to5Mac, references to updated MacBooks have been found in an OS X utility. These MacBooks are referred to as "early 2016", which for Apple means the first 1/3 of the year; i.e., January to April. So we should see updated MacBooks by the end of April, not March.

    This is the most realistic scenario.

    Wasn't the last MBA update on a Monday? (March 9th, last year).

    Current Macbook April 10th last year (Friday).
    Mac Pro December 19, 2013 (Thursday)
    MB Pro - March 9th 2015 for the 13" (Monday) and May 19th for the 15" (Tuesday).


    I think the fan obsession with days and dates is just that, a fan obsession.

    It's all just part of the fun. Irrational, yes - but harmless. I'm in the market for a new laptop and I'm enjoying the anticipation. Won't bite until there's a new update to the rMB's or MBP's.

    Would this be today Europe time or West Coast USA time?

    By "Thursday" does Apple mean "Early Thursday" which can also mean "The 4th Sunday in May"?

    True.

    Apple calls "Early Thursday" any Thursday up until May 26 at 23:59:59 in Western Samoa apparently. Another faux "it's coming!" deadline for the zealots to face East and genuflect before.
