Macbook Pro Update Date?

Posted:
in Future Apple Hardware edited January 2014
I know that it is basically impossible to predict when Apple is going to release something, but evidently some of the AI Members are able to get information that the rest of us are not privy to until they share it with us.



So, does anyone have any additional info as far as the date is concerned?

    Tomorrow! Super Tuesday! Republicans! Democrats! Al Gore! Apple!







    In my head, Steve Armitage is shouting these...

    Doubtful



    Today would be too useful for me...



    I expect the date will be:
    Code:


    now() + days_till_I_give_up() + 1;







    So based on that I reckon about 1st March (I plan to order a new laptop before the end of Feb).

    Nope, back up and nuthin'.



    Disappointment as usual.



    Hasn't Penryn mobile been shipping in computers for 2 weeks already? I'm sure I read some dates for shipping were 23rd January.

    Probably the reason I didn't notice. Canada Store + not currently caring about iPhone/iPod Touch.

    MacBook Pro PLEASE!

    DAMN IT! How much longer could it possibly take? According to another thread here in Future Hardware, the new Macbook Pro was ready to launch the same day as the Macbook Air, but was not launched because Intel did not have enough Penryn chips ready for Apple to be able to keep up with the demands. How much longer could they possibly take? Seriously! I am starting to get pissed, which is ridiculous, but I REALLY NEED A NEW LAPTOP. But I refuse to buy a new machine when we are so close to an update.

    I reported in a previous thread that the case design of the MBP WILL be changed when it is updated. Details are still unclear, but while the basic footprint is expected to be the same as it is now, the new model should include the new MBA keyboard, gesture touchpad and longer battery life.



    It may well be that Apple is waiting for the new Centrino Montevina mobile chipset to launch before releasing a new MacBook Pro. The packaging benefits of Montevia it a natural choice.



    Although Penryn chips are available now, the relative performance upgrade of Penryn alone without the Montevino board plus seems to be quite limited. Therefore, Apple may forego any kind of short-term update to the existing MBP and simply offer a brand new version with both a redesigned case and Montevina as soon as the new chipset is available.



    If Apple does this, then we won't see a revised MacBook Pro until May, i.e. not for another 12 weeks. The fact that Apple has released a 16Gb iPhone today and no new MBP suggests that this is exactly what they will do.

    My current laptop is over 3 years old... PowerBook G4. I have a new iMac desk top 2GHZ Intel Core 2 Duo and of course an iPhone. I really like the Mac Air but not for my only computer. I did away with the desk top at home and when doing spreadsheets or just want a bigger screen, I have the 23" Apple display. Recently I notice how slow my PowerBook is when compared to by wife's new MacBook. After I purchase a new MacBook Pro I would also like to purchase a Mac Air for travel but not interested in that for my only home computer. So APPLE give me a new MacBook Pro and I will buy 2 new computers!!!!

    If you're not willing to wait until the end of March, you might as well buy now: at least you will get two useful months out of the computer. If you don't really need to update now, then wait.

    I need a laptop now I just don't have the money until either next week or the week after (depending on when I get the nice fat cheque I'm waiting for) - and besides I could wait until the update comes out, buy one, then the day after Apple would in a fit of madness release an uber-update I just have sod all luck with my timings.

    I am almost to the point of being REALLY pissed off. First I was told by all of my Mac Faithful friends to wait until after MWSF, just in case they did a speed bump or something of the sort. So I waited. Nothing. Then I was told by multiple people, both in person and in these forums, to wait because Apple was going to update the Macbook Pro at the beginning to middle of February. I was told by one person who claimed to be very much in the know that they would begin shipping units at the beginning of February. I sit writing this at 10:30PM EST on the 6th, and still nothing.

    My outdated iBook G4 is getting sluggish during simple tasks like word processing, and I am a full time student and cannot afford to not have a solid machine, but I cannot bear the idea of purchasing a new Macbook Pro only to see a refresh happen a month later and have MAJOR upgrades (new case, new keyboard, new track pad, magnetic latch).

    I finally have the money to buy the Mac of my Dreams, but cannot bring myself to do it...

    Apple needs to hurry up and get these things out. Even if they forgo the case redesign and just update in internals with the 45nm Penryn and upgrade the graphics card. That would be fine with me. At least then I wouldn't feel like my machine is halfway outdated before I ever take it out of the box...
