I agree. I wasn't really expecting them today, just hoping. I won't give up complete hope until the store reopens.Bibulous said:I was looking at the Dell website yesterday and their C2D laptops didn't seem available to ship for 7-14 days. I think Apple will wait until they have them built in mass before they announce them, 2-4 weeks.

Oh, so you mean other manufacturers haven't started shipping C2D laptops yet? I haven't actually checked myself but I assumed that they would have started by now, especially since it's been a couple weeks since Merom's come out, and since even iMacs have shipped with C2D already.rtharper said:No, they have until the 26th, when everyone else starts shipping.
They're all 7-14 days. Sadly, I'm not an Apple loyalist, I've been a Unix user for most of my work. I use Windows for my laptop because of hardware stuff. I'm going to take the plunge and do either Apple, with its delicious Unix under the hood, or try and find the friendliest FreeBSD laptop on the market. That means if someone else will ship my a C2D, they will get my money.ZoomZoomZoom said:Oh, so you mean other manufacturers haven't started shipping C2D laptops yet?

But then again, I haven't checked shipping times on Dell/Asus/etc.
That nVidia card is tempting though.ckodonnell said:http://configure.us.dell.com/dellstore/config.aspx?c=us&cs=19&l=en&oc=M1710B2&s=dhs

Not really. I need a machine running OS X. So I'm screwed. Though I wish I could say this is really what I did.
yeah..it seems they totally forgot about MBP...HecubusPro said:That nVidia card is tempting though.
Anyway, I'll wait for Photokina on the 26th. If nothing happens by then, I'm just going to go ahead, get my MBP, and be happy with what I've got. I'm getting tired of feeling nervous every Tuesday, and then being disappointed at no new announcement. I'll have to buy one for the betterment of my mental health.
