Are you anticipating the pleasure of an RDF trance, or are you going to be like "meh"?

Besides liking Apple in general I find very little to get excited about these days.

It's all Phone, Tablet and Internet services. Unless something groundbreaking happens in the desktop/laptop lineup I won't be very interested.

There seems to be no option between being fanatic about it and waiting until it's over to go see.

I think Cook does a pretty good job at presentations.

The days when i was an Apple fanatic, knowing the specs of every current machine by hart, are long long gone. I know there are MBP, iMacs and MP out there, but that´s it. I voted option three


Macintosh Quadra 950, Centris 610, Powermac 6100, iBook dual USB, Powerbook 667 DVI, Powerbook 867 DVI, MacBook Pro early 2011

OP has it wrong. We should call it a Timnote.

Slick shoes?! Are you crazy?!

Can't be any worse than Amelio.

Three days before the Tim note.

Do you think it will be:
Presented by Tim Cook, someone else, a combination of all?
A Live Quicktime broadcast?
Exhaustive in their market progress report? Complete picture of state of the Mac, iPhone, iPad?
One single product announcement, one big plus one small product announcement, or several product announcements of the same level?
More energetic than any and all Stevenotes?
Have a final pre-recorded speech from Steve Jobs?
Have a revolutionary, as never seen before, software product, akin a killer Mac app?
Musical ending?
Announce something that will use part of 100 billion dollars that will leave you gasping for air?

My guess is that they'll continue on like they have been. Whoever headed up the team for the product that is being unveiled will demo it. iOS tends to fall under Scott, the 4S was introed by Phil, my guess is that Phil will also intro the new iPad.

I'm looking forward to it mostly because I plan on buying pretty well everything that they announce. I'm going to be buying 1 iPad for myself (black) and an iPad for my mom and dad, (white), as well as an Apple TV.

So, was ir everything you expected? As an iPad 1/2 owner/nonowner, did Tim sell you one, or for your loved ones?

Shortly afterward I bought a Black 16 gig, a White 16 gig, a green smart cover, and a 1080 Apple TV.

I love having lots of disposable income

Why not just one 32GB iPad?
