    I agree! Apple is a very disciplined company. There not going to pussyfoot around a product release or try to time economy or an election. They refresh or update their MB/P line every October. I expect new models this month with an Intel chipset in the MB. They don't need to throw a parade... A simple "We'll Be Back Shortly" will do.

BTW - Apple authorized dealer - not an Apple store.



    There you go. Apple does a great job of clearing older models from its distribution system over a very short time. A precise introduction date at this point is less important than reports that retail stocks are being cleared out. If this is happening in British Columbia, we ought to be seeing similar stockouts occurring elsewhere, so more reports about conditions at your local stores would help to confirm the rumors.

    In 2006, the MacBook Pro itself was introduced silently in the morning.

    My spies in Rwanda tell me that a new Bimbo sized AL laptop will be launched on St Mugabe Day

Also, the University I attend has started a close out sale for Macbooks, dropping the already low educational pricing down another ~$200 due to what they said was going to be an update of Macbooks around Oct 14th. I don't know what, if anything, they might know, but these signs seem to be pointing in a hopeful direction.

    If you count a Macworld Expo keynote (complete with Intel CEO Paul Otellini emerging dressed in a bunny suit and a One More Thing announcement) as being silent, then sure!

    Remember when the stock doubled in a year? The stock generally moves twice as fast as the market, in either direction. It didn't lose value because people lost their faith in AAPL. (FUD is always being spread.) It went down, because investors needed money, and because there is fear of an economic meltdown, which Apple couldn't withstand, either. Everybode knows Apple is one of the companies best equipped to withstand a crisis. They have loads of cash, so they don't need credits, and they can buy innovative companies (Fingerworks, PA Semi) cheaply.



    Just don't look at the chart, relax, and wait a few years. If you can't wait that long, you shouldn't put your money in stocks.

    Columbus day? Why would that slow Apple down?

    Where is all the gloating to the ones who said that the "window" for the possibility of an event on the 14th was closing?
