Vote! Just a prediction.

Edit: I mean this thread to be as a poll to see what people think about the release date; not to be another Arrandale thread.

Thanks for reopening this.

Don't you think it is a little ignorant and mainly just plain dumb to try to predict Apple's next move? It will happen when it happens.

Apple won't do anything that takes away from the marketing of iPad. Even a silent update gets front page billing on apple.com. We won't see anything until iPad is released for sale. There will be an event to talk about the iPhone OS 4.0 and at that time the MBAs and MBPs will get a silent update.

why don't they just not front-page it? or make a little 2x2 ad for it below the iPad ad? i really hope they realize how many people want a new MBP NOW.

I have to admit this is the most productive speculation thread I've seen since I started browsing here. Statistics never ceases to surprise me with some inherent symmetry.

I voted April 6th... If I were Apple, I wouldn't want to steal the iPad's thunder... I would wait about a month after it's release and just when the Apple hype is starting to die down... BAM! new Macs... and I mean all of them!

I'd say by Feb 9th.
They might want to have something new to sell for Feb 14th. It's usually a big shopping day.

No - it happens right after you gave up and bought the current model. The day its too late to return it, than it happens. Always. Its like gravity. It happens.:rolleyes:
So all those people who gave up and bought them on the 27th-28th made it so the next update will be the 16th? Sounds good to me!

Its somewhat disheartening to still not hear about resellers saying that the current model is approaching its EOL or shortage of stock. That's what usually happens, a couple of weeks before a product revision. I'm refreshing MacRumors every half an hour just to read such a news.

However, I wrote this in another thread too, MBPs are refreshed at exact intervals of 8 months. It has been like this since 2006, you could see the dates on the MacRumors buyer's guide.

So, February, probably at the end. I really can't wait any longer !
