    Does anyone think Apple will release updated notebooks any time in the near future? I know anything we come up with will purely be speculation, but sometimes Apple tends to fllow trends.

    My 17" i5 MBP was just replaced with a gift card, and I'm wondering if I should wait for a bit (Apple had a Mac event in October to announce the unibody) or go ahead and get what I want now. I suppose I can always sell it later if something THAT much better is released. :eek:

    Early 2011 seems most likely. If there is an update before that, it's going to be very minor

    Forgot all about that, thanks!

    That's what I'm thinking. Even in early 2011, I'm wondering how significant of an update it would be.

    I was kinda thinking they'd do a minor processor bump before the Christmas holidays.

    Then maybe in mid 2011, we'll get some sandy bridge processors :)

    maybe :eek:

    Nah, I think we're too close now - I think any Apple updates will be in spring/summer 2011. It's a bit too late now for a Christmas update, in my opinion.

    You may be absolutely right, but there were rumors of a November bump. Who knows what'll happen though. Maybe just the top end i7 will go to 2.8?

    Christmas is 3 months from now. There's still plenty of time for a speed bump. Then hopefully we'll see SB in the spring.

    Probably a February on March update (March marks 10th Anniversary of OS X so we may see stuff then )

    Macbook's and Macbook Pro's have all seen updates (refreshes) during the month of October.
