I tried to buy a macbook pro 2.2Ghz this weekend (glossy screen) and every apple store and mac store was out of stock in both the seattle and portland areas. When I called apple direct, the sales guy there said that they are filling pre-orders first and are behind on stocking the stores. The Mac Store told me that apple has changed the mbp 2.2 Ghz to pre-order only, and will no longer be stocking it in store. Typically when apple starts to reduce their production its because they are planning to do an update. Is the Macbook Pro line coming for an update? Any thoughts? I know the buyers guide says no, and I know that there has been little rumors, except for the ultra portable coming out. I wonder if apple will be adding flash to all their computers? And thats what the update is going to be? (when they update the iMac, mac mini, and ultra portable) It makes sense that leopard will be incorporating flash memory, much like vista can use a flash usb stick to help speed up the OS. And I know that Steve would not sell leopard to have capabilities that his computing line already can't deliver. My only other thought of why I can't buy in stores and only pre-order online (with 7-10 days to ship) here is that the Steve feels that Macbook Pro 2.2Ghz is priced too low, such that apple (with the educational discounts applied) isn't making a large enough profit margin, and is therefore doing this to encourage people to buy the MBP 2.4Ghz. Any thoughts here? I'm ready to buy right now.
