    Mm...Lol! Yup, wrong timing. I am intrigued with the rumored 11”, bezel-free (virtually) iPad Pro and Apple has to either kill the long-in-the-tooth MacBook Air or revamp it to reflect current tech.

    Well honestly I’m already quite aware of the new iPad on the wings but I did prefer to buy the current model as I wanted to use Brydge keyboard to make it a MacBook replacement specially since iOS 11 supported split view, cant wait for the new model and the new keyboard from Brydge, I’m happy and contented at the end of the day. ;););)

    Mm...yeah but the 10.5 would still be available after this Event, as a fallback, in case the new iPad Pro does not fit your requirement.

    I’ve read in a tech blog that a 2nd fall event happens 60% of the time. This year is one of them.

    This is either just great news or great misery for first-time buyers or those who just bought the "latest" models only to be told there are new ones coming...

    I'd prefer a new iPad Pro ( something to compete against MS Surface Studio) because my MacBook needs to be placed on display at the Technology Museum of the Central Bank already. Its battered, weathered, used up and prime for museum viewing.

    Might even be cheaper as well. So yes, definitely wrong timing.

    I’m also on the cusp of retiring my MBP. With my use-case, a pro with Smart keyboard does the job 99% of the time.

    Also, this event might set another milestone for the iPad and MacBook Air line. Clearly targeted at creatives based on the colorful invites (drawn on Apple Pencil?)

    I was set on buying a MBP next week. Been planning on buying since middle of the year. Was looking forward to wait until middle of the month since I was expecting this event to be in mid-Oct just like previous years.

    And then this announcement comes out. Have to wait na naman to avoid regrets.

    MUGger problems.

    Wow... OnePlus should just reschedule their event!

    Will we see a new Mac Mini/Pro/Air - I'm not even asking for a spec bump for the Air, but they should at least make it look like their current laptop line up

    Will the iPad Pro really get USB-C
    New Airpods?
    New Pencil?
    Airpower?
    iPod Touch?
    Apple TV?

    According to Reddit the event location might foretell that the upcoming ipad Pro might support logic pro or other pro apps that is usually be found with Macs.

    I can't wait for the iPad pro with A12X and the rumored Macbook air refresh with retina display. Hopefully Airpods 2 will be announced and also their rumored Over the head headphone. I'm still hoping for AirPower lol anyway suprise us Apple this October 30th. Buti na lang 10AM EST I can sleep a bit early after the event.

    Mm....I read in the comment section in another forum that the seating capacity of the venue for this event is 2 times more than the Steve Jobs Auditorium in Cupertino. If so, is Apple unveiling some major, new products? Be still, my heart. Quit whining, you wallet you! :ROFLMAO:
