We of course can't be at the live event, but we will be highlighting and
discussing the announcements coming from the many sites who are covering this event including Mac Rumors, The Apple Blog and Ars Technica.

All new 15" MBP. Oh crap, I'm going to be broke. I had prepared to buy a new iPhone, but I listened to all the naysaying bloggers who said there wouldn't be new hardware announcements. They're improving the monitor (increased color gamut) and bringing that improved battery from the 17" over to the 15". Only saving grace for my pocketbook? Still not Nehalem, as far as I can tell. If it was, I'd be buying it on release date. Now I might still hold off until the Nehalem architecture makes it into the MBPs. They did lower the standard config prices, $1699-$2299 (vs. $1999-$2499). Wonder if the academic price will still be $100-$200 lower. 17" saw a speed bump as well in processor speed. I'm seeing this overall now as an incremental rev. 13" gets new screen, and the rebranding to all aluminum = MBP just happened.

Thank God for Safari 4 final. Hopefully it won't be as bug ridden as IE8. I really regret putting that on my desktop at home. It won't even render Google Maps in "Compatibility Mode".

I can't believe they are going to refresh the whole Macbook Pro line and not frigging add BluRay. PLEASE APPLE WAKE UP.

Sam, I agree about BD. However as I mentioned earlier I think this is really just a minor refresh, so it doesn't surprise me that BD didn't make it in there. Also, when BD first hits Apple I'm be it will be a CTO option on the Mac Pro (and maybe the iMacs) before it hits the portable line. When they move their MBPs to the Nehalem chipset (probably late 09/early 10), that's my guess as to when they'll put BD in their mobile products as a CTO option, but my guess is that BD will be a CTO option on the Mac Pro around the time Snow Leopard is released. No basis on my conjecture, just a gut feeling.

How funny will it be if there is so much time spent on Snow Leopard and new Macbook Pros that there is no new iPhone? =p

Not gonna happen. They are competing full on with BD via iTunes HD downloads. Unless they see they are losing sales, they won't do it. How many people buy Windows instead of Mac OS just for the BD support?
Hold on tightly, let go lightly.
