    I think push notification was promised for the iPhone in October (they didn't specify the year!), so actually I think "July" is considered late January. I'll be REALLY glad about Apple leaving Macworld if they stop giving release dates that aren't met. Don't be the next Microsoft!

    It's really weird seeing the old MBP 17" at the Apple Stores, and nobody is going near them. Today's price for the old MBP 17" was $2299 for the 2.5GHz 320GB which is quite a price drop for the Apple Store...:eek:

    If you ordered on day one you should get it in January...otherwise you're looking at mid to late February like me. :(

    Any chance they might start shipping early as compared to our "expected ship" times? I can hope right..

    Haha, I think the 25th is pretty much out of the question. Apple usually doesn't anounce things past my bed time (8PM). :rolleyes:

    I pre-ordered a copy of iLife '09 a couple of days ago, and it now says it's shipping Jan. 30. THAT is late January. Not sure on the 17" MBP front, but I hope it's similar.
