...so sorry. Please extend your patience one thread longer... Anyway, I am going to be buying the lower-end base model MacBook Pro for boarding high school next year. I probably will not have the money until early August anyway, but I am disappointed that the new models still are unreleased. I will be having this computer for the next four years at least, and possibly college also, so I want to make sure that the computer I get is the most modern and capable machine available. Unfortunately, I leave the 23rd of August and I really need a computer by then. For those who have bought computers that tight after an update, could you give me a date that if the new models are not released, I should order the current generation to be safe (shipping/problems/breaking in/delay periods after update)? Thanks. Also, What is up with this 14-day restocking thing? Thanks x2.
