    Note: I'm not starting another discussion about what we do/don't believe will happen for the next update. I'm just asking if any of you have any (website) links correlating to the rumors regarding the next MBP revision [other than MacRumors].

    There really aren't any concrete rumors, there are just guesses by users and wish lists so far.

    Yeah, I know. I'm just trying to figure out where the rumor started. I, like others, have my sites that I deem more reliable than others, but none of them are reporting on this. The only good source I have is below, but I'm skeptical about where they found the information on development in Taiwan. I don't normally follow the rumor mills, but this one time I'm searching for some credibility. I've been holding onto this same design (Penryn) since the Powerbooks.

    Link to the Source

    I think it's just estimation of what will be included given prices, release dates of components, current components, etc. The 2012 MBP threads started as soon as the 2011s were released. Same thing happened last year.

    Probably from the same place that 2012 is the end of the world rumor - someone made it up.

    A lot of the rumors come from where the sun don't shine.

    A combination of wishful thinking, and the fact that this refresh didn't change the design, so maybe next one will.

    Same place the iPad 3 rumors are coming from: People wishing and guessing as soon as one is released, people start guessing what will be in the next. Seriously is this really a question?

    No. I just asked for responses for no reason.
