Hi,

I have a few questions, since I have never bought any brand new macbook...

Say the new mbp is announced at WWDC this year in June.
When will I be able to buy it at the store?
Will it be as crazy as the iPhone line up?
Do I have to order it online in case of no availability in store?
Am I be able to get it the day after announced?

Will it eventually arrive in September?

It may get announce, Apple has not confirmed anything.
When will I be able to buy it at the store?
Its up to apple, it may be available immediately, it may not be available until a certain date.

Do I have to order it online in case of no availability in store?
Perhaps.

Will it eventually arrive in September?
Most likely well before September.

Basically, you're asking questions that cannot be with any definitive certainty be answered.

yes. It may get announced. I certainly read macrumor's posts.
My problem is that I don't have any experience buying a brand new one.
From your past years experience, what would you recommend IF the new one gets announced in wwdc?

Well... it seems the questions should be asked after the mbp gets announced
Thanks.

maflynn, he is (obviously) asking for a reasonable prediction based on past releases.

And right now the reasonable response is we don't know. Over the years, there were some releases which were immediately available and yet others not available until x date.
